More on Congress
In reading through the new budget proposal I am reminded of a question President Trump asked this summer when he was speaking to the African American community at a rally in Philadelphia. The President asked the question: “What do you have to lose?”

Washington, D.C. -- In reflecting on the President’s joint address I think back to a question he asked at the beginning of his speech, when he said what kind of country will we leave for our children?
I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you some of my key values that are at the core of the America I believe in:
I believe in an America that does not discriminate against or judge those who are different, but one that supports the values and progress of all people regardless of their race, religion, gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic status.
