Protection From Scams for Vets, Servicemembers
It is important to be mindful of cybersecurity when talking about how to protect yourself and your family from hackers and malware made to steal personal information from your phone or computer. But cybersecurity doesn’t stop there, it also applies to phone scams and robocalls. Robocalls are annoying, but they can be particularly deceiving because they can be disguised as legitimate messages.
Unfortunately, veterans and active-duty servicemembers are disproportionately targeted by robocalls and other scams. A 2021 report produced by AARP concluded that veterans, military, and their families are significantly more likely to be targeted by scam artists looking to steal their sensitive personal and financial information than the average American.
This week, as Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee’s Subcommittee on National Security, I investigated this disturbing issue and stressed the importance of protecting our servicemembers and veterans from schemes that target their sensitive information. In addition to the torment they face from fraudulent robocalls, using this illegal tactic to target our men and women in uniform also poses a national security risk. For the sake of the privacy of our veterans and the safety of our nation, we must identify these con artists and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
Science Sides With Life
The initial Roe v. Wade ruling overturned pro-life protections at the state level, meaning 46 states were forced to provide access to terminate life in the womb. Since that Supreme Court decision in 1973, the technology behind ultrasounds, specifically the quality and processing speeds of computer imaging, has improved dramatically. Thanks to these technological advancements, it's now overwhelmingly evident that unborn children are human beings.
This week, during a House Oversight Committee hearing, I discussed the history of the legality of abortion in the United States in relation to the evolution of ultrasounds.
In addition to this hearing, I spoke on the House floor in support of Life. Because of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, now more than ever, individual citizens must decide if they want to protect life or terminate it before birth since the question of abortion will be decided by each state.
Children in the womb are human beings who are created by God. We must respect and cherish these precious lives instead of leaving open the option to end them.

This week, I met with Wisconsin members of the Soybean Growers Association about the management of soybean production and how we can build on their success to expand growth of soybeans in our state.
Wisconsin is known for cheese because of companies like Great Lakes Cheese, whose facility in Plymouth plays a pivotal role in our dairy industry by providing work to nearly 600 employees in the Sixth District.
