We're seeing that our junior enlisted, because they're married, have to go on food stamps or [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] and I think that's a travesty, i hope in the next Congress I can be part of the team and work with [House Armed Services Committee ranking member] Mike Rogers to build that consensus. We have to adjust our enlisted pay because if pay is not keeping up with our junior ranks they're going to get out right away or just not get in.
You gotta remember, Deb Fisher, one of my best friends, she voted for it in the Senate. [Iowa Republican Sen.] Chuck Grassley, who admire tremendously, voted for it, i thought it was a good bill. Now, there were some things added to it when we were in the minority. I think it went from an A bill to a B bill.

Just because it was good for President Trump and then ‘bad’ when Biden does it, I don't follow that. I'm an American first. I want America to succeed and this bill was good under Trump, it was good under Biden as far as I'm concerned.

Tom Emmer, and I think Kevin( McCarthy) and Steve( Scalise), are all saying we should be focusing on the issues -- and they're right, our focus should be on 2022. If it's 2024, it hurts us. . . We need to be focused on winning this November, and I think anything that takes your eyes off that, it could cost us a couple of victories.
People said they hope Kentucky Republican's going to be a big voice in 2024. ... Kentucky Republican was being encouraged : we need more of you in 2024, and I would agree.
