Republicans in the House of Representatives Delivering Wins to American Workers

Over the last eight months in the majority, House Republicans have been working tirelessly to deliver wins to American workers and families.

In the first seven months, we have passed 50 bills, 39 of which have been bipartisan, to secure the southern border, lower energy prices for the American people, protect our daughters playing in women’s sports, ensure parents have a say in their children’s education, and fully fund veterans’ care and benefits.

We have also been fighting for government accountability on all fronts. At the top of our list is exposing the corruption of the Biden crime family, uncovering social media censorship, and investigating the politically motivated abuse of power in federal agencies.

First and foremost, we passed H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act.

Wisconsinites have been feeling the effects of the Biden administration's reckless spending and green energy agenda in their paychecks and at the pump for months, which is why we made this priority number one coming into the majority.

H.R. 1 will ensure that we are able to build American, mine American, drill American, and protect American dominance in the 21st century. It will make us less dependent on countries – like Russia and China – and more dependent on clean American energy while also lowering energy prices for all Americans. This was a bipartisan effort, with four House Democrats joining Republicans.

Next on the list was passing the strongest border security package in American history, the Secure the Border Act.

For the last two years, the Biden administration has enriched cartels, human traffickers, and drug smugglers by intentionally erasing our southern border. In fact, this week it was just exposed that they are purposely leaving 114 border gates open.

H.R. 2 changes that. Among other things, it forces the Biden administration to restart construction of the border wall, ends the practice of catch-and-releasing illegal immigrants into American communities, and increases the number of Border Patrol agents.

I introduced the parole section of the Secure the Border Act to force action to end the administration’s gross abuse of this authority. Some 40% of the migrants that have been “paroled” into the U.S. under President Biden have never returned to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Another top priority of mine has been passing the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act. As a father of three daughters, protecting young girls from competing against biological men and ensuring their ability to compete fairly in sports is very important to me. This bill levels the playing field and ensures that our daughters are not forced to compete against biological males in women’s sports.

In bizarre fashion, 203 Democrats voted against this bill.

There is still a lot more work to get done, and I am making it a priority of mine throughout the rest of the year to ensure Washington’s reckless spending is reigned in, using the power of the purse to hold woke, weaponized federal agencies – like the DOJ and FBI – accountable, and getting to the bottom of Joe Biden’s involvement in Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.

We have fought and won on a lot of important issues, but I am looking forward to delivering more wins to hardworking Wisconsinites.
