“Today’s violent and disgraceful demonstrations at the Capitol have no place in our society.

This was a direct attack on the free society we are blessed to live in and all those who participated in unlawful activities should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

“House Democrats are passing radical new rules that shut down the legislative process and stop amendments from being made to improve legislation," said Congressman John Moolenaar, who voted against the new rules. "Democrats are also banning the House from using common terms like father, mother, brother and sister, which are unique words that many people use to describe their loved ones. This political correctness is out of control, and instead of bringing people together for the start of the new Congress, Democrats are closing off debate and setting an awful example for the future."

"After months of denying relief for small businesses, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats rushed a bill to the floor and instead of only helping the Americans who need it most, they handed out money to wealthy families," said Moolenaar. “Americans want jobs, and they want their states to trust them, by letting them safely re-open their businesses and serve their customers. State-imposed restrictions supported by Democrats are bankrupting small businesses, harming students, and creating a spike in substance abuse. With new doses of vaccines arriving every day, states should end their restrictions so Americans can provide for their families and kids can go back to school.”
