  • American Energy Produces Global Stabilization
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on April 14, 2021 | Preview rr

    During the first days of his administration, President Joe Biden issued a series of reckless executive orders that directly attacked American energy. Unfortunately, these actions have even more problematic concerns beyond our borders. In his executive orders, President Biden placed a moratorium on new oil and gas leasing and stopped construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Both orders had numerous consequences, including killing thousands of jobs, raising energy costs, slowing economic growth, ... Read more

  • Oklahomans Embrace the Entrepreneurial Spirit
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on April 7, 2021 | Preview rr

    Last week, I traveled throughout the Second District of Oklahoma to visit with many hardworking Oklahomans. We discussed the biggest issues facing our communities here at home as well as those around the country. Our communities have been through a lot over the past year, but they have also been incredibly resilient. Despite great challenges, they all found a way to move forward. I met with businesses that had to adapt operations in order keep their doors open in the height of the pandemic. I he... Read more

  • Don’t Be Fooled by Universal Background Checks
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on March 31, 2021 | Preview rr

    This month, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats passed a bill that if signed into law, could turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals. Yes, you read that right. H.R. 8, the “Bipartisan” Background Checks Act, is an unlawful and misguided bill that criminalizes lawful gun owners while doing nothing to prevent gun violence. The reality is 77 percent of criminals obtain firearms through illegal means. So, clamping down on law-abiding gun owners by adding red tape will do nothing to solve the probl... Read more

  • The Internet Isn’t a Luxury, It’s a Necessity
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on March 24, 2021 | Preview rr

    One of the biggest lessons we have taken away from the pandemic is that the internet is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity. From telework to telemedicine, having reliable broadband connectivity is the difference between being connected and being in the dark. Now, as Congress debates a massive infrastructure package, it is more crucial than ever to ensure that rural America does not get left behind. This issue hits home for all of us. Over half of the residents who live in the Second District ... Read more

  • What Is Your Stimulus Check Really Costing You?

    Tags: Spending Cuts and Debt

    Millions of Americans will soon be receiving a $1,400 stimulus check from the latest round of “COVID” relief. While I’m sure many people are happy about seeing this extra money come in, have you thought about what that check is really costing you? Our country has spent more than $5.7 trillion on COVID relief packages since March of last year. If you divide that by the roughly 330 million people living in our country, that will cost about $17,000 per person, or $69,000 per family of four. All of ... Read more

  • Biden's Border Crisis
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on March 9, 2021 | Preview rr

    President Biden and his party's open border policies are encouraging a surge of migrants at our southern border and creating a crisis for our nation in the process. In January alone, 80,000 migrants crossed the border, which is double from last year. More than 5,700 unaccompanied minors were apprehended at the border in January, the highest total for that month in recent years. By late February, the number of minors in custody had risen to 7,000. To make matters worse, DHS is currently projectin... Read more

  • “For the People”? More Like “For the Politicians”
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on March 2, 2021 | Preview rr

    When legislation is introduced in Congress, low bill numbers are reserved to reflect the majority’s biggest priorities. For Speaker Pelosi, the most important bill, H.R. 1, is the “For the People Act.” But this bill isn’t really for the people, it’s solely for the politicians. H.R. 1 is nothing but a federal government takeover of elections that will take power away from the American people and hand it directly to politicians in Washington. Article 1, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution explicitl... Read more

  • Defending Women’s Sports
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on February 23, 2021 | Preview rr

    On June 23rd, 1972, President Nixon signed Title IX into law. This landmark legislation had one goal in mind: to protect women from sex discrimination in all federally funded school programs, including sports. Because of the access to funding and opportunity this historic legislation created, there has been a 545% increase in the number of women playing college sports and a 990% increase in the number of women playing high school sports. There is no doubt that Title IX has created lifechanging o... Read more

  • Raising the Wage is Not the Answer
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on February 16, 2021 | Preview rr

    In under one month, the Biden Administration has revealed their partisan agenda, namely, appeasing socialist Democrats. At this critical point when our country is in dire need of economic recovery, the far-Left has decided the solution is to skyrocket the minimum wage to a federally-mandated $15 per hour. Pelosi Democrats have continually tried to force their one-size-fits-all policies onto American workers, but the minimum wage mandate is a step too far. Raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour...

  • The Biden Plan is a Bad Deal
    Posted in Mullin' It Over Column on February 9, 2021 | Preview rr
    Tags: Economy and Jobs

    Despite President Biden’s calls for unity, the radical Left are continuing their all-or-nothing crusade of wasteful government spending, blue state bailouts, and burdensome regulations that hinder our economic recovery from the pandemic. Congressional Democrats are using what’s called the budget reconciliation process to pass a massive $1.9 trillion “relief” bill, which will fund their socialist agenda. The budget reconciliation process is a way to fast-track bills into law. This process is a po... Read more
