    The radical Pelosi Democrats in Washington recently unveiled their large-scale plans to drastically transform our society, best known as the Green New Deal. It claims to want to take our country to net-zero emissions in the next ten years. What people don’t realize is that the Green New Deal is the vehicle that will drive our country straight into socialism. The author of the Green New Deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, makes several guarantees to the American people including: “A job with a f... Read more

    The so-called Green New Deal is here and its policy is the definition of socialism. In the resolution, Washington Democrats rolled out more of the same radical, socialist policies they have been pushing since day 1 of the 116th Congress. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez leads the charge on this humorously unrealistic plan that demands net-zero carbon emissions in the next 10 years. The key parts of the plan are worth laying out because they are completely far-fetched and unreasonable. The news may ... Read more

    Today, members of the Congressional Western Caucus commended the EPA's official reversal of WOTUS: Chairman Paul Gosar (AZ-04): "Like a villain in Scooby Doo, the past Administration almost got away with an unparalleled expansion of Federal power. The WOTUS land and water-grab rule proposed by the Obama Administration was one of the greatest regulatory threats to the West and rural communities. Fortunately, this legally-dubious effort was unmasked for what it was by the Supreme Court and this Ad... Read more

    By now, we all know that President Trump is a negotiator. At the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires last weekend, the president showcased his dealmaking skills in yet another trade negotiation on behalf of the American people. After the first round of U.S. tariffs, China targeted our agriculture products. One U.S. farm feeds 165 people annually in the United States and abroad. Oklahoma is home to over 77,000 farms on 34 million acres and plays a crucial role in food production for the country and in tur... Read more

    Alzheimer's Disease runs through both sides of my family with my great-grandparents, my grandparents, and my uncles all facing Alzheimer’s during their lives.

Each year, I meet with advocates from the Oklahoma Alzheimer’s Association to discuss what we can do to put an end to this life altering illness. I met with them earlier this month to discuss what Congress can do to help. Everyone ... Read more

    Today the House unanimously passed H.R. 2606, the Stigler Act Amendments of 2018. The legislation would allow land held by the Five Tribes—the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee (Creek), and Seminole Nations—to remain restricted, even if the heir to the land has less than ½ blood quantum. “When the Stigler Act of 1947 was passed over 60 years ago, the federal government mandated a ½ blood quantum requirement for restricted land owned by members of the Five Tribes,” said Mullin. “No other tri...
