Dear Friend,

The Biden administration’s blunders are piling up. From the botched Afghanistan withdrawal to the crisis at our southern border and rising inflation, Democrats’ misguided policies have created a series of national catastrophes.

American middle-class families are shouldering the cost of sky-high prices. When you have to pay more to put food on the table, fill up your car with gas, or heat your home, people are forces into stressful and hard decisions to make it all work.

But President Biden and the Democrats are only doubling down. They are focused on a tax and spending bill with cradle to grave entitlement programs and they claim it’s going to cost $0. That’s just not true. According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, two-thirds of the new tax burdens on American businesses would be on the lower and middle class. 

We need policies that will grow our economy, not one that destroy jobs. Read more about my efforts to push back of the Democrats’ agenda below.



In an effort to pay for trillions of dollars in spending, Congressional Democrats want to allow the IRS to snoop on your bank account. This is an invasion of law-abiding Nebraskans’ financial privacy.

I applaud Nebraska State Treasurer Murante for speaking out and pushing back against this policy, and I share in his opposition to this proposed increase in the size and scope of the IRS. Americans don’t need federal agents surveilling their daily purchases.

That is why I am proud to co-sponsor Senator Mike Crapo’s (R-ID) bill to further protect Nebraskans from any violation of their financial privacy.



No one understands the importance of conservation better than Nebraskans.

Instead of working with land owners, the Biden administration wants to implement their aggressive 30x30 initiative. This ambiguous framework disrespects private property rights and disregards traditional conservation practices.

I recently announced a Western Conversation Principles outline -- a more reasonable conservation approach that rural communities can actually support.

Every October, we come together to raise awareness about breast cancer, which affects 1 in 8 U.S. women.

This year alone, nearly 300,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, making it the most common form of cancer in American women.

But for all of the worrying facts, there is still hope. I am always so inspired to see the many ways Nebraskans support cancer patients, survivors, and research all year long, and especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every dollar raised and every act of encouragement lets these brave Nebraskans know they are not alone in their battle with cancer – and it brings us one step closer to finding a cure.

Recently, an alarming Department of Justice memo was made public. The memo raises serious questions about whether the DOJ intends to infringe upon parents’ rights to voice their concerns about their children’s education and well-being.

That is why I sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Garland demand answers about the memo and their intention to investigate law-abiding parents.


October 12th was National Farmers Day. The hard work of farmers in Nebraska and across our nation feeds and fuels the world. 

Thank you to all of the farmers across Nebraska and I wish you the best of luck during this year’s harvest.

I had the chance to attend the Nebraska vs. Michigan game on October 11th. It was a great night to cheer on our Huskers! #GBR 

Enjoyed visiting Physicians Mutual in Omaha today for a meeting with company

leadership and a Q&A with their great employees.

The U.S. Mint recently released the designs of the American Women Quarters 

Program, and they are excellent. These women all played a large part in U.S.

history and are more than deserving of this honor. I am proud to have introduced

legislation with Senator Cortez Masto that authorized the program, and I look

forward to seeing the 2022 quarters in person.


It was great to speak with students from College View Academy of Lincoln on the

steps of the U.S. Capitol. They had lots of thoughtful questions and were excited

to learn more about how Congress works.

Congratulations to the five Nebraska schools that were recognized as 2021

National Blue Ribbon schools. Teachers, administrators, and students - keep up

the great work!


Thank you for reading and for being part of the democratic process,
