“Today, I joined my colleagues in trying to honor our military for its successful airstrike against two terrorists in Iraq. However, our resolution was blocked by House Democrats, who then pushed forward with an effort to limit President Trump’s abilities to defend Americans. Congress has already authorized the use of military force in Iraq and President Trump was within his legal authority to order an airstrike there. Democrats want to change the rules, even though President Trump used the same authority President Bush and President Obama had when they were in office.”

"Soleimani worked with terrorists to kill and maim hundreds of American servicemembers and he was meeting with the group that attacked our embassy in Baghdad. For decades, he helped plan attacks on innocent people around the world. In the past three months, President Trump and the U.S. military have successfully brought to justice Soleimani and ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The world is safer with these evil men removed and they will never be able to harm innocent people again."

"Hardworking men and women in Michigan are enjoying a strong economy right now with rising wages and low unemployment. The USMCA is another win for those workers because it levels the playing field for manufacturing and makes our country more competitive with our neighbors. This agreement also helps Michigan farmers, especially our dairy farmers in the Fourth District, by opening new markets for them to sell their products."

"My constituents elected me to get things done and when they look at what the Democrats are doing in Washington, they see partisanship instead of solutions that will make a difference in their lives. It is unfortunate that Democrats put bipartisan Michigan priorities on hold and waited until the last minute to finish crucial bills that pay our military, protect the Great Lakes, fund the construction of a new Soo Lock, and finalize the new trade deal with Canada and Mexico that will level the playing field for hardworking Michigan residents."

“This is a historic day. For the first time in decades, legislation funding the construction of a new Soo lock is on track to become law. This is a major priority for our state and as our state’s senior member of the House Appropriations Committee I have worked hard to get this funding through Congress. A new lock will create jobs and help ensure Great Lakes shipping can move the raw materials needed for American manufacturing and Michigan-made products.”

“Our men and women in uniform are on the frontlines of keeping our nation safe so I am proud to support a pay raise for them and their families.

“The USMCA is a tremendous victory for the American people and President Trump. This new trade agreement with our neighbors will benefit Michigan workers and Michigan farmers. We have the best workers in the world and this agreement will help ensure they are competing against the competition on a level playing field, especially in manufacturing. It will also open new markets for our farmers so they sell more Michigan-grown food to our neighbors. It has been nearly a year since this agreement was first signed and I hope the House will schedule a vote on it before the end of the year.”

“Residents in mid and northern Michigan sometimes have to travel long distances to meet with a doctor because there is not one in their area. It is my hope that this legislation will result in better care for patients, with more doctors living and working closer to those they care for in our rural communities where they are needed most.”
