This is a massive overreach of executive authority. Not even the EPA has been delegated authority from Congress to regulate emissions—the fact that USTR thinks it can use a “national security” tariff statute to do so is plainly absurd.

It is true that the increase in defense spending included in the bill is desperately needed, given the dangers facing our country and our international allies. (2/4)

But the legislation’s reckless increase in domestic spending will only exacerbate inflation and make it more likely that future generations will inherit a magnitude of debt that can only be resolved through crisis. (3/4)

With my last vote as a member of this body, I could not in good conscience condone this irresponsible product nor the process that created it. (4/4)

The @USTradeRep  has proposed an agreement with the EU that would use the threat of ultra-high tariffs on steel + aluminum to coerce countries into implementing left-wing climate policies.

Stablecoins are an exciting technological development that could transform money & payments. I hope this framework lays the groundwork for my colleagues to pass legislation next year safeguarding customer funds without inhibiting innovation.

Merry Christmas! May you have a safe, warm, and joyous holiday.

Representing Pennsylvania in the United States Senate for these twelve years has been the greatest honor of my professional life. I will always be enormously grateful to the wonderful people of this great state for entrusting me with this awesome responsibility.

Despite our challenges, I’m extremely bullish on America. My optimism is easily justified by our history. America has always been able to survive and thrive. And America remains the greatest nation in the history of the world.

Read my statement on today’s Pennsylvania federal court decision, and congratulating President-Elect Biden:

China’s authoritarian crackdown on crypto, including #Bitcoin , is a big opportunity for the U.S. It’s also a reminder of our huge structural advantage over China.

While I appreciate that my colleagues and the White House have acknowledged their original crypto tax had flaws, the Warner-Portman amendment picks winners and losers based on the type of technology employed. That’s horrible for innovation.

The House has unanimously passed the #HongKong  Autonomy Act. @ChrisVanHollen  and I will pursue Senate concurrence as soon as possible so this gets to the president's desk. America must stand with the people of #HongKong .

Congress’ failure to pass legislation creating regulatory guardrails for crypto trading, combined with the complete hostility and lack of transparency by @SECGov , has generated a debilitating amount of legal uncertainty.

They fail to acknowledge that these allegations have been adjudicated in courtrooms across America and were found to be unsupported by evidence.

The @SECGov  under Chairman Gensler has imposed enormous costs on investors with no legitimate rationale.
