Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act

Just a few weeks ago, 44 Senators blocked consideration of S. 311, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that would prevent infanticide and ensure life-saving care for babies that are born alive after an attempted abortion. 

In the House of Representatives, I have signed on as a cosponsor of the bipartisan Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, H.R. 962. I have always been an ardent defender of pro-life policies and I believe it is imperative that H.R. 962 be brought to the House Floor for a vote immediately to protect babies that survive abortions.

That is why, this week, I have joined a bipartisan group of 193 of my colleagues in signing a discharge petition to have H.R. 962 brought up for a vote. Normally, The Speaker of the House decides which bills will be brought to a vote. A discharge petition is a document that, if 218 members of Congress sign on, will force a vote on the bill. Our current Speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, refuses to protect children who are born alive, so a discharge petition is the only way I and my pro-life colleagues have a chance to protect these children.

It is disgraceful that sitting Members of Congress so easily and openly turn their backs on our country’s most vulnerable. The American people deserve to know where their representatives stand on this important issue.

Dual Enrollment

This week, at a House Education and Labor Committee hearing, I spoke with witnesses about accreditation practices for high school teachers that teach dual enrollment courses, in an effort to keep Wisconsin’s dual enrollment programs strong and lower the cost of college for Wisconsinites. In my experience, there is too much emphasis is being placed on finding teachers with master’s degrees, while other highly capable individuals sit on the sidelines. We should be actively searching for teachers who will make the biggest impact on student's lives, not just those who have certain degrees.

National Social Security Month
April is "National Social Security Month", and this year's theme is "see what you can do online!

For example, you can estimate and manage your benefits, request a replacement card, apply for disability and Medicare benefits and also apply for retirement benefits. Social Security is a vital program for our country's seniors and, as someone who will always fight to protect it, I am glad to see that the Social Security Administration is taking steps to make it easier for seniors to see and manage their benefits.
