Lately, you might have noticed an increase in prices at the gas pump, the grocery store, and pretty much everything else you can buy. The shelves at stores are empty, employers can’t find workers to fill positions, and Americans everywhere are bracing for higher taxes. 

Welcome to Joe Biden’s and the Democrats’ socialist America. In their America, it’s seemingly okay to spend trillions of dollars, rack up copious amounts of debt, and ignore a crisis at hand.

In their America, inflation and supply chain issues are apparently a “high class problem,” even as working...Read more

Dr. Fauci says that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) did not fund ‘gain-of-function’ research in Wuhan and even if they did, the newly created superviruses are genetically too dissimilar to COVID to have caused the pandemic.  The leftwing media allows this blather to accumulate without any critical analysis.

First, no one, not myself or anyone I’m aware of, argues that a recombinant...Read more

It's clear and should come as no surprise, the Biden Administration and the Democratic Party intend to use the reconciliation process as a means to achieve their most radical, progressive, and draconian climate policies.

These policies promise to be the nail in the coffin to Kentucky coal jobs. Thousands of Kentucky families are threatened with ruin of this bill passes. 

Instead, Congress should allow the U.S. to access the abundant resources at home while removing the government’s hand in deciding who wins and who loses. We should be talking about energy freedom, new...Read more

Recently, in the House Ways and Means Committee, Democrats passed a sweeping tax hike to be included in their $3.5 trillion reckless tax and spending spree. Their solution to pay for their liberal wish list and big government socialism – tax businesses and corporations, and the rich, “who aren’t paying their fair share”. 

Specifically, it includes an increase of the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 26.5 percent, which is higher than communist China’s 25 percent. It calls for a hike in the top income tax rate from 37 percent to 39.7 percent. They also propose a change to...Read more

A worldwide healthcare crisis demands agility and common sense, both in short supply in America these days. As COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations rise throughout the nation, doctors continue to battle this virus.  In this environment of fear and death, a most unlikely tool has surfaced in the maelstrom, giving hope and life in a most desperate time.  What is showing efficacy?  Nebulized budesonide.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorizations (EUAs) for PCR tests, monoclonal antibodies, and vaccines.  It is time to add a...Read more

Any rational person would think arbitrarily preventing those sick with COVID-19 from receiving potentially life-saving treatment is immoral. But that’s exactly what is happening to many patients who are seriously ill with COVID-19.

Mandates that lack nuance or physician discretion are preventing patients admitted to hospitals from getting monoclonal antibodies and inhaled steroids because the government has not approved these treatments for in-patient use.

Despite over 90% of people over 65 having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, we are in the midst of yet...Read more

For quite a while now, I’ve publicly praised the benefits of intravenous monoclonal antibodies and urged Kentuckians and Americans to be aware of this remarkable and effective treatment.

Monoclonal antibodies are one of the most promising treatments for the virus once the person has been infected.

But like so many issues today, this treatment for COVID-19 has fallen subject to partisan political games. While Dr. Fauci and his friends at the CDC have rarely mentioned this treatment, that hasn’t stopped me from speaking out about it – both in media interviews and while...Read more

The Enquirer joins a long list of uninformed media, inaccurately reporting both what I said and the facts about therapeutics during our battle with COVID-19. 

Let’s start with a few things I’ve said over and over again but bear repeating because if I don’t, the media with the memory of a goldfish will pretend I never said it.

First, COVID is real. It is a deadly disease that has caused too many Americans to lose their lives.

Second, I am PRO-vaccine, as I’ve always been, especially for those with high-risk factors like older age and increased weight. However, I’m...Read more

As a physician, I think it’s incredibly important for patients to have access to as much life-saving information as possible, especially as we still continue to see COVID-19 cases across the country.

In a commonsense move last week, Florida’s surgeon general announced that any Floridian is now eligible to receive monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19, without having to deal with the bureaucracy of a doctor’s office. 

Since then, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has opened nearly 15 state-run COVID-19 treatment clinics in an effort to relieve overrun hospitals. These...Read more

During my time in the Senate, I have seen our national debt grow to over $28 trillion, while the U.S. has continued to increase foreign aid by 70 percent over the last decade.

It has always been my imperative to put America’s interests first. This means focusing on funding critical infrastructure projects at home like the I-69 corridor project, rather than in foreign countries. 

Recently, I forced a vote on an amendment to legislation in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that would have cut foreign aid spending by 10 percent across the board. It...Read more
