Policing 'Reform'

I voted against the ‘Justice for George Floyd Act,’ which hinders law enforcement’s ability to do their jobs and limits the readiness of law enforcement to respond to calls for help. Disguised as ‘accountability,’ this bill demonizes law enforcement, hinders their ability to do their job, and limits their capacity to respond to calls for help. There is room for common ground, but Democrats rejected any attempt by Republicans to weigh in with solutions that might make a difference.

As I said in my remarks on the floor of the House, the path forward is through supporting law enforcement and working together on solutions that assist them in developing the tools necessary to keep our communities safe and protect the rights of the citizens they serve.

So-Called 'For the People Act'

The so-called ‘For the People Act’ also passed along a party line vote. Unfortunately, this bill is not ‘for the people’ at all. The legislation – which was shoved through under the guise of ‘reform’ and without any Republican input – would fund political campaigns with taxpayer dollars, legalize voting for convicted felons, weaken election security, make it more difficult to protect against voter fraud, and override the ability of states to manage their own elections. Elections belong to the people, but this bill would concentrate power among entrenched Democrat politicians instead.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy lays out the truth of the bill in this video.

COVID-19 "Relief"

The Democrats’ $1.9 trillion “COVID-19 relief” bill passed the House of Representatives late last Friday night by a completely partisan margin.

While the legislation does include funding for Planned Parenthood, $112 million for an underground rail boondoggle in Silicon Valley, a minimum wage hike that will eliminate 1.4 million jobs, $570 million to pay federal employees to stay home, and billions in aid for foreign countries, it does nothing to help struggling small businesses or get our kids back in school. In fact, only nine percent of the $1.9 trillion bill goes toward COVID-19 relief. This might be good for ultra-liberal progressives in San Francisco, but it does not come close to meeting the needs of the people of Minnesota’s Seventh District.
