Fighting Devastating Tax Increases Amid a Rocky Economy

President Biden and House Democrats are readying a massive, $2.1 trillion tax increase on American families and job creators to pay for their takeover of America. Take a look at this recent study by the Heritage Foundation outlining the devastating impact these taxes would have on middle-class Americans.

Simply put, the Biden economic policies are not working. Today, the September jobs report indicated that only 194,000 jobs were created last month, missing the 500,000 plus number projected by economists. Check out this clip below, even CNN knows that the Biden economic agenda is failing America.

On Wednesday, I presented a posthumous Bronze Star, Purple Heart and other military medals for U.S. Army Private Gordon Lee Hardy to his brother, Retired U.S. Army Colonel Donald C. Hardy.  Private Hardy was killed in action on April 18, 1945, near Leipzig, Germany.  Less than three weeks later, on May 7, 1945, the German Nazis surrendered, ending World War II in the European Theatre. You can view an interview that aired with me and Colonel Hardy on WKYT by clicking the link and image above, or by clicking here.

Over seven decades later, I am honored to finally deliver long overdue recognition for Private Hardy’s extraordinary service that his family deserves. Private Hardy was part of our greatest generation and gave the ultimate sacrifice so that all generations that came after him would have their freedoms and way of life preserved. His story is an inspiration and no matter how many decades pass, his legacy and impact will never be forgotten.
