    Mullin speaks on the importance of the Special Diabetes Program for Indians. Click here to watch the video. Native Country as a whole is affected by a higher rate of diabetes than any other population. The Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) was established by Congress in 1997 in order to specifically address the diabetes epidemic in Native Americans. According to the Indian Health Service, more than 780,000 patients are served each year under the program. In 2017, SDPI funding in Oklah... Read more

    Tags: Health Issues

    Our country has been shaken by senseless tragedies recently in Gilroy, California, El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. My heart breaks for the families who have lost loved ones at the hands of sick individuals and something must be done to prevent this from happening again. When President Trump addressed the nation after the tragedies, he said “we must seek real, bipartisan solutions that will truly make America safer and better for all.” I could not agree more. But I don’t think infringing on Ame... Read more

    Tags: Spending Cuts and Debt

    When my wife and I took over my family’s small plumbing business shortly after graduating high school, it was over a half a million dollars in debt. We knew this was unsustainable and that we had to make changes to get us back on track. We worked seven days a week, made tough choices to move the business from red to green, and paid back all that we owed. Unfortunately, our country is in a very different situation than my company was in. Our national debt is over $22 trillion and growing by the d... Read more

  • Hanging Up on Bad Robocalls

    It’s happened to all of us. You sit down for dinner and then the phone rings. You get up to answer, thinking it may be an important call from family or friends, but instead, it’s an automated message. Or your phone rings while you’re at work and since it has an Oklahoma area code, you answer thinking it’s a call from your bank or doctor’s office. But it’s actually a stranger who is spoofing a familiar phone number trying to scam you. Unwanted robocalls are annoying and nobody likes them. On aver... Read more

    Tags: Defense and National Security

    One of the most important duties of Congress outlined in the U.S. Constitution is to provide for the common defense. It is a promise to American citizens that we will protect them and defend American interests across the globe. Each year, we keep that promise by passing the National Defense Authorization Act, which provides those who defend our Constitution with the tools they require to succeed. For the last 58 years, the NDAA has been a bipartisan bill where both sides have come together to pu... Read more

  • Land of the Free and Home of the Brave

    Every Independence Day we celebrate our Founding Fathers who had the courage to go against the British monarch and create their own government. They had a vision for a government controlled by the people where every citizen had the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They also knew the decision to break away from the British empire was bold and would come with a price. But they had faith that freedom would prevail. On July 2, 1776, Thomas Jefferson presented The Second Continent... Read more

  • Iran’s Culture of Chaos
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on June 26, 2019 | Preview rr

    Iran has a long history of creating chaos in the Middle East with no regard for the consequences. The United States first imposed sanctions on them in 1979 as a result of the Iran Hostage Crisis, where they held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Since that incident, we have repeatedly used sanctions on Iran to deter them from developing nuclear weapons, dissuade other countries from economically enriching their leaders, and prevent the spread of their negative influence throughout the region. I... Read more

    The United States is in the best neighborhood on the planet and our neighbors are our best customers. Canada is the number one market for exports and Mexico is number two, both nationally and in Oklahoma. Oklahoma exports $1.4 billion worth of goods and services to Canada and $527 million to Mexico, accounting for nearly 40 percent of Oklahoma’s total exports. Over 100,000 Oklahoma jobs rely on our trade with these two countries. These statistics make it clear that trade with our North American ... Read more

  • Mullin It Over: Resources for Flooding Victims
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on June 12, 2019 | Preview rr

    The beginning of summer is usually an enjoyable time for many families, but the flooding across Oklahoma has turned it into a devastating time. Homes and buildings have been destroyed, roadways have been washed out, and many rivers and lakes have risen to record-breaking levels. Many people have lost everything- their homes, their property and tragically, some have even lost their lives. I visited some of the hardest hit areas in the Second District last week and Vice President Mike Pence and Se... Read more
