March 24, 2020 Columns
The anguish in people’s voices as they call our office every day is heart-breaking. Many are wondering how they can pay their bills, whether their job will still exist in a week, whether their retirement savings have been decimated or whether they’ll lose the shop they’ve spent their lifetimes and life savings to build.
March 16, 2020 Press Release
Benjamin Franklin warned that “Passion governs, and she never governs wisely.” Exhibit A is HR 6201, the so-called “Families First Recovery Act.” The House passed this bill literally minutes after it was introduced, with no analysis, no cost estimates, virtually no debate and in a general state of political panic.
February 13, 2020 Vote Notes on Legislation
The so-called equal rights amendment passed the Congress in 1972 with a seven-year deadline for ratification. In that period, it failed to get the required 38 states to ratify it. This year, 40 years late, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify it, while five states have rescinded their earlier ratifications. No matter. With this resolution, the Democrats propose to retro-actively repeal the clear expiration date in the amendment, count all states that have ratified it AFTER it expired and ignore all the states that have since rescinded their ratifications and declare it the 28th Amendment to the Constitution. This is the stuff banana republics are made of.

Lost amidst the tumult of the last several weeks was the quiet passing of an outspoken leader of California – H.L. “Bill” Richardson. H.L., as he was known to his friends, arrived in the California State Senate with the freshman class of 1966, part of the Reagan landslide that year. For every one of the 22 years he served in the Senate, H.L. was a force to be reckoned with. He served for many years in the Republican leadership, but he was never, ever, a political insider. His enormous influence inside the senate stemmed from the fact that he never joined that club – he never lost sight of the people who elected him – and he not only worked tirelessly to serve them inside the capitol – he worked even harder to organize, inform and mobilize them outside the capitol.
