The Price of Inflation

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Hard-working Americans don’t need the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) to confirm what they have been experiencing for months: pain. Even at face value, however, the CPI remains above eight percent, inflation remains at a 40-year record high, and Americans are left shouldering the burden. Shelves across the country are bare, gas prices are at an all-time high, and small businesses are struggling ...

New Year, Same Democrats

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

Many enter the new year with a renewed sense of purpose and drive. January is welcomed with promises of possibility and hope for the best versions of ourselves as we reset the calendar year. Unfortunately, we know for Democrats in 2022 this will not be the case. 2021 was a year filled with countless crises, bad policy, and reckless spending. With a Democrat controlled White House, Senate, and Hous...

Blank Check for Socialism

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

By now, you have probably heard about President Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” bill and all the empty promises in it. The truth is that it will do nothing to build our country up. Instead, this is a blank check to take our country into socialism. This bill will change every American’s way of life. It’s filled with radical policy changes that will raise costs on all goods, put the federa...

Bring Back Reaganomics

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

We’ve heard President Biden recite the same line over and over again, that he wouldn’t raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 per year. This is a flat out lie. President Biden’s disastrous budget proposal includes the highest sustained tax hike since 1968 and nearly 60 percent of taxpayers will see their taxes go up under this plan. Under President Donald Trump, we had the strongest econo...

The Biden Plan is a Bad Deal

| Posted in Mullin' It Over Column

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 a...
