The White House’s response to Iran’s latest troublemaking has been to consider lifting sanctions and offering new concessions to produce a new nuclear deal. Iran just tried to kidnap an American. This is not the occasion to desperately reward bad behavior.

Today the Senate will pass a bipartisan bill to strengthen the Crime Victims’ Fund that helps survivors. With violent crime surging, I wish that pro-police, pro-safety policies were an equally bipartisan local, state, and federal priority. Public safety should not be partisan.

Middle-class families are already facing runaway costs. The last thing they need is another massive, reckless taxing and spending spree. It’s simple. We need to stop paying people more to stay at home than to work and encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

President Biden campaigned on a pledge not to raise income taxes on the vast majority of Americans. But Democrats’ reckless tax and spending spree would bring crushing new burdens down on homeowners and small businesses, like the many family farms with deep roots in Kentucky.

Democrats are playing Russian roulette with taxpayer dollars. Their latest reckless tax and spending spree is threatening the stability of our economy, while their last one continues to dampen our recovery.

COVID-19 cases are on the rise. Last month @CustomsBorder  had 190,000 border encounters (most in 20+ yrs). But Democrats are talking about switching off extra border protections for the health emergency and stuffing amnesty into their reckless tax-and-spend spree later this year.

The Senate is grieving this morning. Our prayers are with the family of our dear friend and former colleague Senator Mike Enzi at this tragic time which has come entirely too soon.


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?

Yesterday, Sen. Schumer decided to vent his frustration by blocking a bipartisan Intelligence Committee meeting on counterintelligence with a leading expert on protecting our elections. A partisan temper tantrum is one thing. Jeopardizing national security is a different story.
