BORDER THREAD: A) Title 42 is NOT border policy & should not be treated as such. Too many GOP use it as cover for weak border efforts when we should not perpetuate the myth of on-going pandemic (see, e.g., student loans); B) We can & should fix the border w/ #HR7772… (1/6)
… the principles laid out in the #TxBorderPlan & we must do these things precisely b/c Title 42 is not an actual fix but a bandaid; C) Now, of course Title 42 can be aggressively used for duration of ANY concurrent federal “pandemic” mandates being used against citizens… (2/6)

End Proxy Voting.

If you don’t want to show up to vote on behalf of your constituents…

Find a new job.
It’s difficult for House Republicans to fight COVID-state when many jet off for fundraisers, signing proxy letters saying “I am physically unable to be present in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency”, handing their vote to another Congressman
Leadership must end this practice immediately. This and much more. #StandUpForAmerica #ArticleOne

THREAD: 21 Senators voted to proceed to the $1.7 trillion omnibus - & to spend billions we do not have, empower Biden bureaucrats with no fixes, & block us from securing the border for at least 9 mos. Some are friends, one my former boss.. but unless… (1/13) #StandUpForAmerica
…they change their vote on final passage, I don’t care & will oppose their bills/priorities - & not for revenge, but b/c it’s the only tool I have to pressure them to stop doing this to us. This vote is indefensible, & damaging to Texas. It takes away our leverage to… (2/13)
…force Biden to secure the border & in fact specifically says new DHS money can only be used to process MORE people - which will lead to more fentanyl, violence, & death. For Texans, this alone is reason enough to oppose this terrible bill (cc: @JohnCornyn)… (3/13)

🚨🚨🚨Here are just a FEW of the terrible, radical, tyrannical policies Swamp Dems are trying to fund with BILLIONS of YOUR taxpayer $$$ in their new continuing resolution

WARNING: It’s worse than you thought

🧵THREAD (it’s a LONG one):
Dems’ continuing resolution contains NOTHING to secure our border from cartels, illegal migrants, and lethal fentanyl flooding in - and would EMPOWER the Biden admin to make the border crisis WORSE:
$57.5 billion for @DHSgov that, under the leadership of @SecMayorkas, has:

🚨Given violent cartels operational control of our border
🚨Allowed fentanyl to pour into communities
🚨Undermined our national sovereignty
🚨Attacked their own employees for doing their jobs

This is right by @mirandadevine, as we have said for 2+ months (incl. @StephenM). @GOPLeader is correct, but ALL @HouseGOP must be pressed & @SteveScalise must whip it. @LeaderMcConnell must demand it of @SenateGOP. THREAD: (1/6)…

The Biden administration’s policies are devastating Americans.

-Energy, healthcare, and grocery prices are skyrocketing
-Crime is rampant
-The border is on fire
-Vax mandates are threatening national security

But we can stop it. 🧵🧵🧵

#NotOneMorePenny #StandUpForAmerica
Biden’s attack on American energy is sending costs through the roof.

A record 1 in 6 American families – 20 MILLION homes – are currently behind on their electricity bills.

And this will only get worse as natural gas prices increase this winter.…
And gasoline prices are STILL $1.38/gal higher than they were in 2019.

But the taxpayer funded EPA and Department of Interior are still doing all they can to choke fossil fuel production.

The Big Choice

It’s time to embrace the national discussion instead of finger-pointing who’s to blame over last weekend’s meltdown. The elephant in the room IS the mandate and the termination of thousands of employees and disruption of air travel after Nov 24th… (2/15)
…Amazingly, Southwest Airlines finds itself at the center of what is likely one of the most pivotal moments of our lifetimes and nation! There is no going back to “normal” or whatever you want to call pre-Oct 4th when the mandate was announced. There are two paths. Two…(3/15)

As Americans, we are bound together by an idea larger than political discourse. We are bound by a shared belief in the greatness of Texas and our nation, and the centrality of both freedom and the rule of law to our prosperity as a people. #TX21 #StandUpForAmerica
On #ElectionNight, Texans in the Hill Country demonstrated our collective resolve to preserve these important ideals for ourselves and our children and grandchildren, so that they may inherit a stronger, safer, and freer country. #TX21
I am honored to represent the great people, businesses, and communities of the 21st Congressional District in Texas - and I appreciate the faith those people have placed in me to continue to represent them. #TX21

At the ballot box, I will be guided by one goal: to vote to #StandUpForAmerica. I want order on our streets & leaders who stand with law enforcement under the rule of law. I want judges who believe their job is to interpret the Constitution & law, & no more. (1/5)
I want to secure the border, end sanctuary cities, & take out cartels - for America’s security & the safety of immigrants who seek to come here. I want to stand with Israel, deter China, & have a strong military used sparingly but forcefully w/o endless overseas presence. (2/5)
I want a strong economy built on low taxes, low regulations, & American ingenuity. I want all Americans, regardless of their health status, to get the best healthcare in the world, affordably, from their doctor without interference from government or insurance bureaucrats. (3/5)

For pro-life Americans, there is no more important U.S. House race in the country than Texas-21 between self-appointed “Abortion Queen” Wendy Davis and Pro-Life champion Cong. Chip Roy @chiproytx.… #ProLife #StandUpForAmerica
In recent years, Davis’ Planned Parenthood has pushed for a New York state law to allow abortion up to the moment of birth, a radical position opposed by 80 percent of Americans.
Davis has even called for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents the use of taxpayer dollars for abortions and is supported by most Americans.
