Democrats are trying to expedite Judge Garland’s confirmation vote. I’m blocking them because Judge Garland has refused to answer basic questions, including whether illegally entering the country should remain a crime.

Senate oversight of the @CFPB  is in strong and steady hands with @SenatorWarnock  leading the Banking Subcommittee on Consumer Protection. We both know that our regulators work for the American people – not the giant banks they’re supposed to regulate.

Senate Republicans are still blocking Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to be AG. Even after FBI Dir. Wray testified earlier this week about the rising threat of domestic terrorism. Our nation needs its top law enforcement official. It’s time to end the delay.

Cancel culture, censorship & runaway wokeness have placed us on the edge of a “Cultural Revolution” where, like Mao, the goal is to destroy the “four olds” - old ideas, old customs, old habits and old culture. Wake up to this insanity or social & political catastrophe await

I challenge any Senator who opposes raising the federal minimum wage to live on $7.25 an hour. THEN we can talk about whether it’s sufficient for our working families. #RaiseTheWage 

8:46:12 p.m. - #HR1280  - On motion to recommit Failed by the Yeas and Nays: (Roll no. 59).

And in case it needs to be said - you can have an independent inquiry into something which does not impact the 'rule of law'. Corporate and sporting institutions do it all the time.

Judge Garland also doesn’t know whether President Biden’s executive order on “equity” directs the government to treat some Americans differently from others based on the color of their skin.

Ensuring the the Senate has time to debate these issues and get answers is the same thing that Senate Democrats did for Bill Barr. We’re not going to have one standard for Trump’s nominees and another for Biden’s.

Apple & Google’s app platforms are a necessity for many small businesses & startups to exist – but they rig the rules to bulldoze competition and consolidate their power. It’s time to loosen Big Tech's grip on our economy. Bills like this are a good start.
