My letter to President Biden this morning on congressional Democrats’ duty to handle the debt limit:

This week in the Senate proved that clumsy partisan jams will not work. We were able to avoid a shutdown because the Democratic majority accepted reality and listened to what Republicans have consistently said for months. Now they will need to do the same thing on the debt limit.

Democrats have taken our roads, bridges, ports, airports, and waterways hostage to ram through an historically reckless taxing and spending spree that would hurt families and help China. The far left is running Congress and the American people are hurting.

Democrats' reckless taxing and spending spree includes a plot to give the IRS sweeping new authority to snoop on Americans’ personal finances and every transaction over $600. Unprecedented surveillance so they can soak the middle class to fund socialism.

My new statement on the Democrats’ self-created debt limit crisis:

Democrats fear for their reelections because of the never-ending series of crises their policies are inflicting on families. The answer isn’t an election law takeover to rig the game. My statement on Democrats’ latest iteration of the same takeover the Senate's already rejected:

These are just some of the unrelated demands Senate Democrats have used to slow relief for workers and families: ✖️ Tax credits for solar and wind energy ✖️ Special treatment for Big Labor ✖️ Airlines' emissions standards This is a crisis. Why is only one side acting like it?

Just finished a great phone call with @POTUS . He’s in good spirits and we talked business — especially how impressed Senators are with the qualifications of Judge Barrett. Full steam ahead with the fair, thorough, timely process that the nominee, the Court, & the country deserve.

Here’s how this must work in our great country: Every legal vote should be counted. Any illegally-submitted ballots must not. All sides must get to observe the process. And the courts are here to apply the laws & resolve disputes. That's how Americans' votes decide the result.

Every Senate Democrat just voted against hundreds of billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief. They blocked money for schools, testing, vaccines, unemployment insurance, and the Paycheck Protection Program. Their goal is clear: No help for American families before the election.

The same Democrats who want to take over everyone’s healthcare and micromanage the entire economy couldn’t even organize their own traditional Iowa caucuses?

Moments like this are what the Senate was made for. The Framers knew the country would need a firewall to keep partisan flames from scorching our Republic. So they created the Senate. Today, we will fulfill this founding purpose.
