  • A Stronger National Defense

    Tags: Defense and National Security

    Long before President Trump was even sworn into office, he made a commitment to provide the men and women of our armed forces with the tools and resources they need to do their job and do it well. Unlike President Obama and his administration, this president and this Congress are following through on a promise made to servicemen and women across the country. President Trump is restoring meaning to the memorable phrase of former President Ronald Reagan: “Peace through strength.” Last week, the Ho... Read more

    This week as we remember the unthinkable attacks of terrorism 17 years ago, national security is on all of our minds. Often, national security is thought of as the need to protect Americans from evil, but in reality there are many aspects to providing for the common defense. President Trump has taken a holistic approach to national security in order to keep Americans safe and free. Since September 11, the men and women of our U.S. military have stepped up to the plate to protect our national sec... Read more

  • President Trump Already Got Us A Better Deal

    Roughly 20 months into President Trump’s first term, our president has delivered on yet another one of his promises to the American people. When he ran for president, he committed to modernizing and updating our bad trade deals to ensure Americans and their well-being came first. Now, he has accomplished yet another feat that previous presidents failed to do: renegotiate our unfair trade deals. Nearly 25 years ago, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was created to allow goods and se... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) into law: “This year’s NDAA makes good on a promise by President Trump to put the 1 percent of our population defending 100 percent of our freedoms first,” said Mullin. “For too long, our military has had planes that can’t fly, ships that can’t sail, and troops that can’t deploy. The FY19 NDAA ensures our military can rebuild ... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 6157, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, by a vote of 359 – 49. “Finally, after eight long years under former President Obama, the United States has a commander-in-chief who understands that the strength of our nation rests on the strength of our military and those who answer the call to serve in it,” said Mullin. “Today is a great day for our men and women in uniform and the colors they s...

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House failed to pass an immigration bill that would fulfill President Trump’s funding request to build the wall on our southern border: “Before we move forward addressing other aspects of immigration reform, we must first secure our borders,” said Mullin. “I voted this week to fully fund President Trump’s border wall because without it, our national security is compromised and the lives of Americans are at risk. I wil... Read more

    President Trump has chosen to put the American people first by enforcing our immigration laws at the southern border. National security should be at the forefront of any domestic policy for the President of the United States. It is the duty of our president to keep the American people safe from harm. This is accomplished by ensuring that the enemies who wish to do us harm are not allowed to enter our country. The current Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen put it pl... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after House passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 (H.R. 5515): “I can think of no better way to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and their families than to ensure that the troops who carry on the fight for our freedoms have the necessary tools and resources to prevail over our enemies,” said Mullin. “As we prepare to recognize Memorial Day this weekend, I am proud to support th...

  • Congress’s Balancing Act

    While Congress has an appetite to spend taxpayer dollars in Washington, it lacks the ability to make tough decisions about discretionary spending when it comes to balancing the federal budget. To ensure Congress uses its power of the purse responsibly, we need to pass a balanced budget amendment. Since I came to Washington in 2013, the House has passed three, two-year budgets that each balanced in ten years. But even though Congress passes a balanced budget, they are not required to keep their s... Read more

    Under President Obama, continued sequestration squashed the chances of military readiness. Air Force planes couldn’t fly. Navy ships couldn’t sail. Army troops couldn’t deploy. Our military didn’t have the resources necessary to be prepared for growing threats. Some veterans saw unbelievably long lines at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers while others didn’t even have access to the quality health care they have earned and deserve. Thankfully, there’s a new Commander-in-Chief in charge. Presi... Read more
