Improving Health Outcomes in Rural Oklahoma

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Rural Oklahomans face a set of unique challenges accessing quality health care. I’ve introduced a few bills over the past week to address these needs and improve health outcomes in the Second District. To combat the opioid epidemic that is ravaging our communities, I’ve introduced the E-Prescribing Parity for Controlled Substances Act to expand the use of electronic prescriptions and create more s...

Our Commitment to America

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

One-party Democrat rule in Washington is not working. Their out-of-touch policies and reckless spending have led our country down a path Americans can’t afford. The Republican Commitment to America is not just a commitment, it’s also a foundation on which the country can stand and for which the American people can hold us accountable. An Economy that is Strong: The Democrat party has spent their w...

Keeping our Commitment to our Veterans

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Every life lost to suicide is one too many, and the prevalence among our nation’s veterans is alarming. In fact, military suicide rates are four times higher than deaths that occurred during military operations in the last 20 years. When our veterans sign up for service, they commit to protecting the lives of all Americans. We must keep our commitment to them and ensure they have the resources nee...

Keeping the Lights On

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

In Democrats’ rush to green, they have overlooked the necessity of fossil fuels in this world. I’ve previously discussed our supply chains’ inability to support Joe Biden’s climate agenda, and now we see another facet that the Democrats have missed: grid reliability. Democrats are pushing Green New Deal policies that leave our country dependent upon unreliable energy sources, straining our electri...

An Invitation to Joe Biden

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Last week, Joe Biden stood in front of a crowd in Pennsylvania and delivered one of the most divisive speeches I have ever heard from an American president. Joe Biden ran a presidential campaign supposedly based on unity. This speech was anything but unifying. Instead of offering solutions to the many crises his administration has created, Biden chose to attack and further divide his fellow Americ...

Combatting the Fentanyl Crisis

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Wednesday, August 31st, is National Overdose Awareness Day, and I want to take this time to discuss the recent surge of fentanyl analogues and the danger they pose to our communities. Fentanyl is a controlled substance. However, illicit fentanyl production is the primary driver of our record-breaking numbers. Fentanyl abuse has become more prevalent and more dangerous in recent years due to “fenta...

Democrats’ Army of IRS Agents

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Among the many disastrous provisions found in the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act, there is one in particular that is of great concern. This legislation awards $80 billion to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to expand their workforce and hire 87,000 new agents. This plan would make the agency larger than the Pentagon, State Department, and Border Patrol combined. The IRS is currently sitting ...

Protecting Our Agricultural Land

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Agriculture is a part of who we are in Oklahoma. Our farmers and ranchers provide everything from food to fuel and fabric for our communities and employ over 300,000 Oklahomans along the way. Generations of families have dedicated their livelihoods to our land, and we could not be more grateful for it. Recent reports of China acquiring U.S. farmland and agriculture companies is not only a threat t...
