If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging

This week we learned that the federal government collected more in taxes this year than ever before. Tax revenues surged by 18 percent – the biggest year over year increase since 1977. Even so, President Biden and Democrats in Congress have spent so much, that even with this record spike in tax collections – the federal government still posted a record deficit. It’s pretty obvious: Washington doesn’t have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem.

Wisconsin Sporting Freedom

October 16, 2021 - 14:23

Republicans introduced a package of bills to increase and protect sporting freedom in Wisconsin. Legendary rocker and outdoorsman Ted Nugent visited the Capitol to help highlight the importance of the legislation.

Outdoor enthusiasts are at the forefront of conservation and preservation efforts and it is extremely important to the hundreds of thousands of sportsmen and women in our state that these traditions are protected and taken seriously by lawmakers in Madison. It is vital that these rights are preserved for our future generations of outdoor enthusiasts.

Protecting Life

Last week, I told you about legislation I authored, Assembly Bill 593 - A Woman's Right to Know. It is part of a broader package of pro-life bills that Republicans in the legislature are once again putting forward for consideration.

One of the reasons that I ran for office was to protect the lives of unborn children. I’m proudly pro-life and believe Republicans have done a great job advancing the pro-life movement in Wisconsin over the last ten years. We can't and won't allow anything to get in the way of our efforts to protect innocent lives.

Sick to my Stomach

Today I was notified by my employer that I have until November 8 to get vaccinated and use their digital passport to prove it. I love what I do. I am well compensated for my work. I just don’t want to surrender my private medical details to my employer. Does that make me a bad person?

Do I keep working for a company that feels the need to spy on my medical information? Will additional private details be demanded in the future once they get this? If I surrender now, will they discriminate against another medical condition in the future that I have no control over?

Election Investigation Subpoenas

October 07, 2021 - 14:51

Last Friday, I announced that I signed the subpoenas Justice Michael Gableman was seeking to move ahead with his investigation. Ensuring the 2020 election was conducted fairly and legally is critically important to maintaining faith in our election system.

Justice Gableman is dedicated to finding the truth and has determined subpoenas are necessary to move forward in his investigation. Assembly Republicans will continue to work with him to ensure confidence is fully restored in our elections.

“Stop bullying ‘Big Vegetable’”” is a poor answer!

I recently read an endorsement in an e-newsletter for an opinion published in the Wisconsin State Journal concerning “..the new food labeling bills on the move in Madison. These bills try to put strict limits on words in an attempt to kneecap competition. This is wrong, and may be unconstitutional.” The published opinion was titled “Stop bullying ‘Big Vegetable””.

Thank You

Throughout this campaign I have worked to present an optimistic message for how we can improve our freedom and safety. I’ve talked about how we need to rise above politics as usual, protect the constitution and the rule of law, and help people retain greater power over their daily lives. So many people appreciated that message, and I truly appreciate their support.

Ignorance at the Top Hurts Working Moms

Jen Psaki, Press Secretary for the Biden administration, recently stated,

“the White House believes it is unfair and absurd if businesses raise prices in response to the Biden administration increasing corporate tax liability”

If businesses don’t raise prices where will the money come from? If you understand basic economics you know this money can’t come from thin air. Something must be produced at a profit to pay for the increased tax expense coming from irresponsible government policies.
