The Biden Administration’s Hand Is In The Cookie Jar

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

No matter how ambitious or forward-thinking the Biden Administration tries to bill itself as, it cannot shake the stench of incompetence that surrounds every initiative it heads up. Two weeks ago, President Biden proclaimed that his COVID-19 national testing failure was, in fact, not one. On January 3, he did a 180-degree pivot on a call with the National Governors Association by saying, “If we ha...

Washington Has Too Much SALT In Its Diet

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

State and local tax deductions, commonly referred to within the Washington beltway as “SALT,” have become a lightning rod for bipartisan criticism over the past few weeks – a flashpoint that has received national attention. Under H.R. 5376, the so-called “Build Back Better Act” that was passed by the U.S. House on November 19, the $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions – previously set unde...

The Constitution Is America's Blueprint

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

The three greatest words outside the Bible — “We the People” — are found in the revered document that has defined the identity of America for centuries: The Constitution. On Sept. 17, 234 years ago, 39 patriots signed their names to a document that has become one of the most recognized symbols of freedom throughout history. What came from that day was nothing short of a dramatic societal shift — ...

Republicans Served As The Catalysts For the 19th Amendment

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

I hear repeatedly from my constituents that students are not learning the history of our country, and it is truly unfortunate. Where we are as a country today is a direct result of our past. The significant events that shaped the United States are not being taught, or explained, in a fashion that is reflective of the facts. As a direct result, modern opinions that have been formed are mired in ina...

A Bipartisan Victory for Blind and Visually Impaired Individuals

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

As you may have heard in the news, conflicting federal laws have recently cost dozens of blind or visually impaired individuals their jobs in Forsyth County. It’s a devastating outcome that required an expeditious response, and I’m proud to report that relief is on the way. Thanks to the passage of H.R. 4920, the bipartisan VA Contracting Preference Consistency Act, nonprofits who support individu...

The Fight for $15 Wages War on Working Families

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

A look at the latest jobs report shows that pro-growth policies like the Republican Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and regulatory reform are working well for the American people. Wages are on the rise, jobs are being created and unemployment has reached a 50-year low. Many businesses and workers are seizing these opportunities, but there is still more work to be done. Right now, there are 7.4 million open ...

This week, the nation recognizes the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to law enforcement and commemorates our fallen police officers. While it is fitti...

When Disaster Relief Hurts

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

People here in North Carolina are asking, what is the hold up with disaster relief funding? Hurricane Florence happened eight months ago, and within two weeks of the storm, Congress passed $8.8 billion in regular appropriations to FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund as well as supplemental appropriations including $1.7 billion for the Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Relief (CDBG-DR). As disas...

U.S. Foreign Policy Promotes Real Global Health

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

The United States is once again taking the lead on true “family planning,” and that doesn’t include aborting unwanted children — especially with taxpayer money. From the start, the Trump administration has worked to build a wall between taxpayers and abortion-on-demand. From restoring and expanding Ronald Reagan’s “Mexico City Policy” (officially known as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assis...

Democrats Want State Majorities, Here's How They're Going to Get Them

| Posted in Opinion Editorials

The U.S. Supreme Court will soon decide on landmark partisan gerrymandering cases involving North Carolina and Maryland legislative maps. But the high court’s decision won’t matter if the Democrats succeed in using state courts to undemocratically secure majorities. It’s the fad du jour to complain about partisan gerrymandering, but there’s a more sinister power grab unfolding right under your nos...
