First @USTreasury nom @JanetYellen says $15 min. wage mandate costing 3.7M jobs is, "very minimal, if anything." Now she's adding insult to injury with an unjustifiable carbon tax proposal. If this is @POTUS's idea of economic policy, I won't stand for it.

Yesterday, @USDOT nominee @PeteButtigieg said he's open to raising the gas tax on the American people to pay for government’s wasteful spending. There is absolutely NO reason we should be placing that burden on taxpayers. Watch more below:

Today, I voted to confirm Gen. Lloyd Austin as Secretary of Defense. I believe Gen. Austin is qualified & ready to lead @DeptofDefense. I look forward to working with him to ensure our military has the resources it needs to protect our nation & its allies.

BREAKING: Thousands of Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and are now taking their rest breaks outside and in nearby parking garages. W/ @NatashaBertrand @AndrewDesiderio

This is unacceptable. These men and women are serving our nation and should be treated with the respect they deserve. I have directed my team to help in any way we can, including offering our office space in D.C., to support these brave individuals in their mission.

Es bueno escuchar que el Parlamento de la UE está comprometido con la lucha en VZ y en reconocer a @jguaido como presidente interino.

La comunidad internacional y las naciones amantes de la libertad en el mundo deben continuar apoyando la lucha por la libertad en #Venezuela.

EU states should recognise Guaido as Venezuela's leader, EU lawmakers say

Great to hear that the EU Parliament is committed to the fight in VZ and recognizing @jguaido as interim President.

The international community and freedom loving nations across the world must continue to support the fight to bring freedom to the people of VZ.

Proud to join my colleagues to introduce and unanimously pass a resolution honoring the life and service of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who was killed in the horrific attack on our Capitol on Jan. 6. He will never be forgotten.

We must fix Washington’s broken way of doing things and unconscionable need to waste taxpayer dollars. I’ll never stop fighting for policies that support hardworking American families and ensure a strong economic future for our great nation. (2/2)

Today, I spoke on the Senate floor about the Biden Admin’s plans for excessive government spending, higher taxes, and increased regulation. Our nation is already $27 TRILLION in debt, but Dems want to keep spending money with no accountability. 👀⬇️ (1/2)

Day 1 & @POTUS & @SenateDems are already pushing a radical immigration agenda of amnesty & open borders. We need substantial immigration system changes, but blanket amnesty is not the answer. Finding genuine consensus & permanent solutions starts with securing the border. More ⬇️

Sen. Rubio and @SenRickScott applauded the @USACEHQ for supporting #Florida’s priorities in their Fiscal Year 2021 work plan.

Glad to see @USACEHQ support many Florida projects, including Everglades restoration projects, in their upcoming work plan. This will help build on our efforts to protect our environment and ensure future generations can enjoy all our state has to offer.

Tonight, @PressSec wouldn’t answer for Biden's plans on the Hyde Amendment. We know House Democrats and abortion activists want to force taxpayers to fund abortions. We can't let it happen.

China Slaps Sanctions On 28 Trump Administration Officials, Including Mike Pompeo

General Secretary Xi gets offended when people tell the truth.

One day after @mikepompeo rightly declared China was guilty of genocide, they sanction him. Over the past 4 years the U.S. has worked to expose the sinister plans of the CCP. I expect nothing less moving forward.

.@POTUS is throwing the U.S. back into the Paris Agreement just to appease his liberal friends. This deal does nothing to hold real polluters like Communist China accountable & unfairly puts U.S. taxpayers on the hook. More here:

La lucha para responsabilizar a Venezuela no puede terminar hasta que @NicolasMaduro esté fuera del poder y la gente de VZ tenga libertad.

La Administración Biden debe comprometerse en hacer la lucha por la libertad y la democracia en VZ una prioridad.

The fight to hold Venezuela accountable cannot end until @NicolasMaduro is out and the people of VZ have freedom.

The Biden Administration must commit to making the fight for freedom and democracy in VZ a top priority.

BREAKING: Biden Admin Changes U.S. Ambassador to Israel into "U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza" -- Day 1 policy shift signals new admin does not consider any parts of these areas as Israeli territory

The Biden Admin title change for the @USAmbIsrael shows the Democrats' hostility to Israel. There is no country of West Bank or Gaza, only territories that Israel has been willing for decades to negotiate sovereignty over but has been met with only hostility and terrorism.

I would like to congratulate @POTUS Joe Biden and @VP Kamala Harris. Now, it’s time to focus on moving our nation forward and getting things done that truly serve the best interests of the American people.

What we already knew - Communist China is responsible for the spread of this pandemic and the @WHO helped them cover up the lies. Rejoining the @WHO without significant reform to the organization would be a big mistake.
