May 17, 2024 In the last year, President Biden has allowed 1.2 million illegal aliens into our country through parole. For comparison, the Obama and Trump administrations paroled 5,600 people on average per year. The current administration’s refusal to secure our southern border has far-reaching consequences. It’...
May 10, 2024 One of my top priorities is making government work better. A major way to do that is blocking burdensome regulations that don’t work for Nebraska. One recent example is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) rule mandating new minimum staffing standards for long-term care facilities. W...
May 3, 2024 Susanne and I continue to pray for everyone impacted by the tornadoes that recently hit our state. The response to the tornadoes is yet another example of why Nebraska is the best place in the world. We suffered devastating hits to homes and property. But gratefully no Nebraska lives were lost.

April 26, 2024 Title IX was passed by Congress more than 50 years ago to level the playing field for girls and women.

April 12, 2024 The average Nebraskan paid $10,519 in taxes to the federal government last year. In return, they should expect a responsible government that respects their God-given freedoms. Government should avoid wasteful spending and ensure the safety and security of our country. That’s not what we’ve seen the...
April 6, 2024 President Joe Biden claims he needs new legislation to secure our borders. He’s claimed he lacks the authority to address the surge we’ve seen since he took office. This is false. President Biden has the same tools President Trump did when President Trump brought illegal bor...
March 28, 2024 The rule of law is foundational to our Republic. Enforcing the law and public safety is one of government’s main purposes. Yet, in recent years, Americans have seen the Biden administration weaponize the Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ’s mission is to “uphold the rule of law, to keep our co...
March 22, 2024Each year, the NCAA Basketball tournament captivates our attention. “March Madness” is much more than just a sporting event. It’s a cultural phenomenon that generates billions of dollars in revenue. Student-athletes who help their schools reach new heights are celebrated as legends. They represent our ...
March 16, 2024 Five years ago this week, blizzards and floods caused the most widespread natural disaster in Nebraska’s history.
