  • "We have to put the safety and security of the American people first, which is why we just passed a critical bill to protect our homeland From boosting military personnel, training, and equipment to building the border wall and strengthening nuclear weapons security, this legislation makes the investments needed to keep our nation safe."

  • Rated 85% by NumbersUSA. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 3004 "Kate's Law" (votesmart.org)
  • "This fundamentally flawed agreement did nothing to stop Iran's hostile behavior or permanently end its nuclear ambitions. President Trump's decision is a critical step toward holding the Iranian regime accountable. Now the U.S. and our allies must work together to address Iran's dangerous and destabilizing actions, including its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, threats to our ally Israel, and support for terrorism." (votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (votesmart.org)
  • ""Since the Obama administration finalized the nuclear agreement with Iran this summer, Iran has continued behaving in a deeply disturbing and aggressive manner. Despite the administration's best efforts to portray this deal in positive light, the facts on the ground and in recent headlines continue telling a different story. That was further highlighted by this week's ridiculous detention of ten U.S. Sailors during which they were publicly humiliated and forced to apologize on Iranian television. This event, among many others in the months since the agreement, should be a stark reminder of the threats posed by this regime. Yet, even with all we know, President Obama is moving forward in providing the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism with sanctions relief this weekend. "As Iran begins to see nearly $100 billion begin flowing back into their coffers, I remain committed to doing everything in my power to prevent these funds from being applied to the production of nuclear materials, acquisition of military goods, or support for terrorist organizations around the globe. This regime has never proven themselves trustworthy and I do not expect anything to change once they are $100 billion richer."" (votesmart.org)
  • "We are taking action to impose tough new sanctions on North Korea to hold this rogue regime accountable." (twitter.com)
  • Voted against HR 256 "To Repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002" (votesmart.org)

  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (votesmart.org)
  • Voted against H J Res 37 "Directing the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress" (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 "United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act." (votesmart.org)
  • "I'm grateful the U.S. and Mexico reached an agreement to address the border crisis and avoid costly tariffs that would have hurt American businesses and consumers. Now it's time for Congress to move toward final approval of USMCA. This modernized trade deal will be good for Hoosier manufacturers, farmers, workers, and families, and I look forward to passing it without delay." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 0% by Public Citizen. (votesmart.org)
  • "While it is encouraging to see the U.S., Mexico, and Canada take the next step toward a modernized trade agreement, I am disappointed there is still no resolution to the steel and aluminum tariffs and retaliatory measures. As long as they remain in place, these unnecessary tariffs on our trading partners will continue to harm American manufacturers and threaten Hoosier jobs." (votesmart.org)
