Yesterday’s tragic events have shaken everyone on Capitol Hill, but we are all together tonight -Democrats and Republicans - at the #CongressionalBaseballGame! Regardless of your political party, this evening will be chance for us to put our differences aside and raise money for a great cause.
As we pray for Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the brave Capitol Hill Police officers, the staffers, and all those affected by yesterday’s horrific incident, the House passed a resolution today recognizing the heroic Capitol Police officers and first responders who put their lives on the line to protect everyone at the congressional baseball practice. We joined together across party lines in prayer, hope, and sincere gratitude for the service of those brave police officers.
I joined Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business News this morning to discuss the repeal of Dodd-Frank the House passed today and moving forward on the Republican agenda. When I was in Davenport this week, I met with many in the community that are concerned that local banks do not have the flexibility to provide loans to our farmers, small business owners, and people in their town. On average we have lost one community bank a day since Dodd-Frank passed – today we took a step towards fixing that.
73 years ago today, service members from all across America stormed the beaches of Normandy in the largest naval, air and land operation in history. Their bravery and courage captured a beachhead, the tipping point in the liberation of Europe from the racist Nazi war machine. Today, we remember their sacrifices and all they gave in the name of freedom.
