President Biden took office one year ago. He's presided over the worst inflation in 40 years. Historic spikes in murders & illegal border crossings. COVID surges, school closures, & illegal mandates. A failed, fatal retreat from Afghanistan. And far-left attacks on institutions.

The Framers built the Senate to protect against exactly the sort of inaccurate, irresponsible bullying which the President shouted at the country yesterday. His reckless speech was the perfect case study for the importance of the Senate and its rules. https://ytb.trom.tf/BCev5FCCY8U

The current Democratic Leader wants power so badly he's willing to misrepresent his own late predecessor if it helps him get it. Senator Byrd went out of his way to argue against rule-breaking power grabs and protect the Senate’s most central feature, the legislative filibuster.

The beauty of Christmas brings light and warmth to the coldest and darkest time of year. This year, let’s hold in our thoughts our fellow Kentuckians and Americans who won’t be enjoying their normal holiday. I hope this holiday brings you health and happiness. Merry Christmas.

Democrats spent 2021 distracted with unrelated far-left ambitions. As a result, the Biden Administration has America badly short on affordable COVID tests, new treatments, or any actual plan. Angry speeches about inherited vaccines are not a strategy. My full statement:

The Senate was designed to make it difficult to have radical change in the country unless there are huge majorities on one side or the other. The filibuster prevents extremism. Democrats want to eliminate it so they can fundamentally change the structure of America forever.

I said the single biggest favor Democrats could do for the country is to abandon their reckless taxing and spending spree. It’s absolutely inappropriate at a time when we’re already fighting inflation. The American people need this bad idea to stay buried.

The big story of the year is the worst inflation in almost 40yrs. It is a tax on Americans. Families have had to spend $3,500 more than they did last year just to tread water. It is directly attributable to Democrats' multi-trillion-dollar inflationary spending earlier this year.

Tornadoes devastated Kentucky this past weekend. Thousands have lost their homes. More than 60 Kentuckians are confirmed dead. Our Commonwealth has suffered its worst storm in generations. But Kentucky is resilient and we are united.

Thank you @POTUS for your rapid approval of Kentucky’s Major Disaster Declaration. Our entire congressional delegation came together to support @GovAndyBeshear’s request. I appreciate the Administration’s quick work to speed resources to help deal with this crisis.

The real engine behind Robert Dole's 98 remarkable years was his love. His love for Elizabeth and Robin, for public service, for Kansas, and for America. Today we honor the amazing life that love created.

Eighty years ago today, America was thrust into a fight we did not choose. But we resolved to win it, starting with the valor and bravery that so many demonstrated at Pearl Harbor that very day.

The whole country stands with the Dole family — not only in grief, but in gladness and thanksgiving for almost a century that was lived so patriotically, so gratefully, and so well.

Bob Dole lived the kind of full, rich, and deeply honorable American life that will be impossible for any tribute today to fully capture. As we mourn this most distinguished American son, we send our sincerest condolences to the entire Dole family. My full statement:

For Christmas, the single biggest gift Washington Democrats could give to the American people is to kill this multi-trillion-dollar reckless taxing and spending bill. The last thing this country needs is more inflationary spending.

The single best thing we can do to fight inflation is to kill Democrats' multi-trillion-dollar reckless taxing and spending spree. Not a single Republican is going to vote for it.
