It was great to speak to @TACC_News this morning. With so many businesses moving to Texas, our state needs to expand our skilled workforce.
Community colleges help ensure Texans are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.
My sincerest condolences to the loved ones and colleagues of the Milwaukee police officer who was senselessly murdered in the line of duty early this morning.
🧵As President Biden prepares to deliver his #SOTU this evening, let’s take a look back at some of his administration’s “accomplishments”.
I expect Pres Biden to use tonight’s address to paint a rosy portrait of the state of our nation under his leadership But Iowans know the rhetoric doesn’t match reality
Continuing to see the President claim the economy is *thriving* ahead of the #SOTU, yet more than 40% of Americans say they are worse off financially than they were two years ago. 🤔 https://thehill.com/policy/finance/3845925-biden-wants-credit-for-a-strong-economy-americans-arent-buying-it/
.@JoeBiden might think his policies are working, but obviously, the American people disagree.
Every time Biden brags about his "accomplishments," he shows how out of touch this admin is.
CBS Poll - Are Biden’s policies...

Had productive conversations yesterday w/ WV Senate President @CraigPBlair and WV House @SpeakerHanshaw at the State Capitol. Enjoyed hearing about their plans for our state in the year ahead!
Allow law-abiding gun owners to travel from state to state with their valid concealed carry permit is commonsense. I joined @JohnCornyn & @SenatorHagerty in introducing legislation that will honor states’ rights and the right to bear arms.
Welcome to reality. What took you so long?
Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai hasn't been seen in public since one year ago.
She’s been under attack by the CCP since publicly disclosing information about sexual abuse by former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli.
I'm deeply saddened by the devastating loss of life as a result of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. As we monitor the latest news, Ann and I offer our prayers for the victims' families and loved ones, as well as the emergency teams seeking to rescue survivors.
Saddened at the news of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria and the loss of life and property. We grieve with the victims and their families.
Since Pres. Biden took the helm, inflation has driven prices for everyday essentials up 13.7%.
Americans can’t afford this kind of leadership.
One small step in combatting the fentanyl crisis. Won’t stop the cartels from trafficking across open borders, though.
.@dallasnews: Cruz says Biden took too long to shoot down balloon
Congress was very clear when we wrote this bipartisan law to end surprise medical billing. It is time for this administration to abide by the multiple court rulings, follow congressional intent and implement the No Surprises Act in the unbiased way it was written.
A court overturned (again) part of an HHS rule that places “a thumb on the scale” when implementing the No Surprises Act. HHS must abide by congressional intent and implement this law to end surprise medical bills in the unbiased way it was written. https://www.law360.com/texas/articles/1573461/-no-surprises-medical-billing-rule-is-still-illegal-judge-rules
Some thoughts ahead of today’s State of the Union:
Congrats Cindy & @SteveDaines on a successful hunt. If @Twitter is so jealous, they should ask for an invite next time, but they certainly shouldn't ban him.
Hunting is part of Idaho's culture just like it is in Montana & across the West. What is Twitter doing?
Reintroduced my Fair Access to Banking Act, a bill to bar financial institutions from refusing services to constitutionally-protected industries.
Thanks to 36 of my colleagues for joining this effort to enact consequences for discriminatory decisions or bans of legal industries.
I'm heartbroken by the devastating earthquakes in Turkey & Syria. The U.S. & our international partners must act quickly to support this humanitarian disaster. Many orgs are accepting donations to send directly to both countries, including the @RedCross. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/02/06/world/europe/helping-earthquake-victims-turkey-syria.html
