No one that I know of wants to sunset Medicare or Social Security, but what we’re doing is we don’t even talk about it, medicare goes bankrupt in four years.

You can pass a law to require people to do drills but you can’t make them do it, you can pass a law to say they have to have law enforcement there every hour.

This is Joe Biden's White House and Joe Biden's administration, we've seen how much the president loves to blame others, but when it comes to the total failures of this administration, like skyrocketing inflation, an open border with record illegal immigration, the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and withering American strength on the world stage, Joe Biden has no one to blame but himself.
I have a real concern about what’s going on in Cuba. We have the biggest, peaceful protests in decades. They are tired of not having food. Medicine. Water. And they are in the street. The Castro regime is cracking down, i’m disappointed in the Biden Administration. They have an opportunity to support the people of Cuba.

On Monday, I met with Brazilian President in Miami, and while I do not believe I interacted with the infected person, that individual was in the same room as me, after consulting with the Senate's attending physician and my personal doctor, I have been told that my risk is low, and I don't need to take a test or quarantine. However, the health and safety of the American people is my focus and I have made the decision to self-quarantine in an abundance of caution.
There is no reason we should be providing state-of-the-art military training to people who wish us harm, and most importantly, there is no reason to risk the safety and security of our American men and women in uniform. If not for the bravery displayed by the military personnel on the ground and local law enforcement, today's tragedy could have been much worse. We must be vigilant against those who wish our country and our people harm.

Vice President Pence said in Fort Myers. The president monitored Irma over this past weekend from Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland. Nearly half of Florida was engulfed by Irma, which left flooded streets, damaged homes and displaced residents in its wake.

In Lee County, which includes Cape Coral and Fort Myers, the Florida Emergency Management Agency said 66 percent of the area's 290,000 electrical customers were still without power Wednesday.

Days after Irma passed, almost 80 percent of homes and businesses were still without electricity, and floodwaters still covered some communities entirely. As of Thursday morning, the number of homes and businesses without electricity in Florida was 2.69 million, according to the agency. That's 25.6 percent of all customers in the state. We are working hard to get power back on. Our utilities have restored over 4-million homes already.
