“The catastrophic situation in Afghanistan right now is endangering the lives of brave Americans and Afghans who have worked together to defend the United States. Our country owes it to them to immediately get them out of danger as quickly and safely as possible. The disastrous events of the past few days show the Biden Administration was unprepared for what has happened. Now, President Biden must ensure safety and security at the airport in Kabul and send all of the resources necessary for our military to safely complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan while leaving nothing behind that could eventually be used against innocent civilians.”

“Today, I mourn the loss of my friend and colleague, and I offer my condolences to Paul’s wife Sherry and their entire family. Paul and I competed against one another, but we also quickly became friends, and I will always be grateful for his friendship and service to our nation. He always stood up for his beliefs, especially as the leader of the School Choice Caucus, and he worked hard to do what was right for Michigan families. I am heartbroken by Paul's passing and know he will be greatly missed.”

“I am introducing legislation that will protect taxpayers and stop what happened in Shiawassee County from happening anywhere else in the country," said Congressman Moolenaar. "When Democrats in Congress passed their partisan $2 trillion spending plan they never put in rules that would stop local officials from giving that money to themselves. My legislation will put those rules in place and stop something like this from happening across the country."

“The early childhood programs provided by MMCAA support the needs of children and families in our communities," said Congressman John Moolenaar. "I know the staff in Farwell works hard to provide the children in its care with a safe learning environment and this grant will help MMCAA continue to provide those essential resources for years to come. I have advocated for Head Start funding in Congress because I know it helps residents in mid and northern Michigan and I will continue to work across the aisle to support this important program."

“In March, Republicans argued for a targeted approach to help in our nation's fight against COVID-19. However, Democrats in Congress insisted on a partisan $2 trillion spending bill that sent $350 billion to states and communities regardless of whether or not those communities needed the money. Those Democrats failed to put in safeguards against wasteful spending and now local elected officials are inappropriately using the money from the $2 trillion bill,” said Congressman Moolenaar. “It's wrong, and I will be working in the coming days to address this issue with legislation and protect taxpayers."
