Working people who chose to avoid taking on debt should not have to bail out adults who borrowed six figures for an Ivy League master’s degree. Construction workers, police officers, and small business owners should not have to eat the loans of high-earning doctors and lawyers.

A delegation of Senate Republicans just left Ukraine after visiting Kyiv and meeting with President Zelenskyy. We saw firsthand the courage, unity, and resolve of the Ukrainian people. My full statement:

The baby formula shortages hurting American families are outrageous and unacceptable. The Biden Administration cannot now hide behind the FDA and pretend they’re powerless. The President must get ahold of the situation fast. My full statement: bit.ly/3sqEkRS

Gas prices are now the highest they have ever been in American history. Americans are now paying roughly $4.40 per gallon. That’s up about two whole dollars from when President Biden put his hand on the Bible.

This all-Democrat government has managed a unique kind of economic turnaround. They took an economy that was ready to soar last January, turned it around, and drove it into the ground.
Inflation barreled ahead at 8.3% in April from a year ago, remaining near 40-year highs cnb.cx/3N4lzLM

I got to meet with Ukrainian Ambassador Markarova to discuss Ukraine's brave fight. Our brave friends are nowhere near out of the woods yet. Continued U.S. assistance must move at the speed of relevance to help Ukraine defeat the invaders and win this war.

Trying to scare federal judges into ruling a certain way is far outside the bounds of normal First Amendment speech or protest. It is an attempt to replace the rule of law with the rule of mobs. It is unacceptable that Democrats cannot clearly denounce it.

The greatest thing my mother ever taught me was one word: focus. She and I both had to have incredible focus while she helped me overcome polio as a child. And today, I consider it the most important word in the English dictionary. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms.

Today, the best of the Bluegrass is on full display. In the shadow of Twin Spires, Kentuckians will don their hats and fans will cheer as the world’s best Thoroughbreds thunder down the track. It all comes down to the first Saturday in May. Welcome to the 148th @KentuckyDerby.

Last night’s stunning breach was an attack on the independence of the Supreme Court. By every indication, this was yet another escalation in the radical left’s ongoing campaign to bully and intimidate federal judges and substitute mob rule for the rule of law.

I was honored to meet today with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, leader of the growing movement for democracy in Belarus. The Belarussian people's brave defiance of Putin's puppet regime in Belarus is an inspiration to the entire free world. They are deserving of our support.

While the far left has been waging a national anti-police, anti-law-enforcement campaign, violent crime has soared from coast to coast. Cities are under siege. Until federal, state, and local Democrats get with the program, innocent people will continue to suffer.

The Biden Administration’s approach to the border is failing America. They are stumbling through this core governing duty with no plan and backward priorities. Democrats would rather appease radicals with functional open borders than conduct the bare minimum in enforcement.

Heartbroken to learn the Chabad House in Louisville, a center of our thriving Jewish community, was destroyed in a fire on the last day of Passover this weekend. All Kentuckians are standing with and praying for the worshipers recovering from this tragedy.

Democrats are ending the COVID emergency for illegal immigrants but extending it for American citizens. This White House is using the pandemic as a pretext to shamelessly pick and choose liberal policies to advance. Completely unacceptable. My full statement:

The Biden economy continues to set new terrible records. Inflation just hit its fastest pace in more than 40 years. Food, gas, and housing costs are crushing families. Prices are soaring way faster than workers’ pay growth.

The Biden Administration needs to take the shackles off of domestic energy production. World events remind us how important American oil and natural gas production is for our national security and our partners. We can meet our needs and help the Europeans wean off Russian energy.

Putin is not going to be deterred just by being called a war criminal. He will be deterred on the battlefield. We need to give Ukraine every single useful weapon they ask for and need to beat the Russians. They believe they can win and we want to help them win.
