"It's wonderful to see young people from Valley Lutheran going to Washington and participating in our country's civic process. The right to life is a bedrock principle of our country and we should do more to protect the unborn, who are the most vulnerable people in our society."

“It is a false choice to say funding for the Soo Locks is at risk. We can build the Soo Locks and protect our border. In fact, we passed a law last year that I voted for that protects the Soo Locks funding from being redirected. I am working for Michigan's priorities in Congress and I will continue to support the Soo Locks in the years ahead.

“Religious freedom is a core principle of our country and it is shared by people around the world. Recent incidents of anti-Semitism at home and abroad show there is still an urgent need to show support for the Jewish people as they face hatred and discrimination. By elevating the role of the special envoy, the United States is sending a clear signal to the rest of the world that our country will be a strong supporter of the Jewish people, as well as Israel and its right to exist.”

"I will always defend the right to life of unborn children in the womb because they are the most vulnerable people in our society and each of their lives is a special gift. It is disappointing that Democrats have made it a top priority in the new year to use taxpayer funding to end the lives of these innocent children.

"The economy is strong, with unemployment under four-percent and wages on the rise. We shouldn't jeopardize that success like the Democrats did today when they voted to make it easier for themselves to take more money from the American people. Democrats were sent here to work in a bipartisan manner, but they are already tearing up rules so they don't have to work with Republicans. I will fight against efforts to raise taxes on hardworking Michigan residents, because it's always a good thing when Michiganders can keep more of their own money."

“It was a privilege to represent the residents of the Fourth District at the National Cathedral on this national day of mourning and to pay tribute to President Bush for his lifetime of service to our country. Today’s ceremony was a beautiful celebration of the gracious and generous man who led our nation through a challenging period in world history. All of the speakers made wonderful remarks and the president’s son gave a moving speech that undoubtedly made his father very proud. George H.W. Bush was a courageous patriot and history will remember him well.”
