But not everybody is celebrating our growing energy independence. House Democrats are sending the Senate bills that would cut our ability to produce American energy here at home, weakening our economy and our footing abroad. This Senate won’t let these bad ideas take us backwards

Thanks largely to Republican policies, America is poised to become a net energy exporter in 2020 for the first time since 1953. That's huge progress for our economy and for our national security as well, as last weekend’s attacks in the Middle East remind us.

Democrats are threatening to filibuster funding for our armed forces and a pay raise for our troops because they disagree with President Trump on immigration policy. I hope our Democratic friends allow the process to move forward when we vote later today.

It has been 232 years since the signing of the greatest document in our nation’s history. It will always be a symbol of American values of individual liberty, freedom, and self-governance.

Our nation must continue investing in the readiness and modernization of our military. Russia and China aren’t slowing down to wait for us. It would be a grave mistake if Democrats block the Senate from moving forward with defense funding legislation this week.

Some Democrats are also threatening to “pack” the Supreme Court if they don’t get the rulings they want. These attacks on judicial independence are not normal politics. My Republican colleagues and I will fight to preserve a fair and independent judiciary.

Despite a lack of any corroborating evidence, leading Democrats tried to grab onto yet another unsubstantiated allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. We all remember this pattern from last time around: Shoot first and correct the facts later.

The needs of our military and the safety of the American people should not play second fiddle to Senate Democrats’ political strategy. I remain hopeful that my friends on the Democratic side will not block the Senate from taking up legislation to fund defense.

Iran’s brazen attack on a Saudi Arabian oil facility cannot go unanswered. I hope our international partners will join us in imposing consequences on Tehran for this reckless attack.

Fortunately a majority of Senators and the American people rallied behind timeless principles such as due process and the presumption of innocence. I look forward to many years of service to come from Justice Kavanaugh.

The far left’s willingness to seize on completely uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations during last year’s confirmation process was a dark and embarrassing chapter for the Senate.

My Tobacco-21 legislation would raise the national age of tobacco purchase to 21 and keep harmful tobacco products out of the hands of vulnerable young Americans. This will continue to be one of my highest priorities.

The CDC is now investigating 450 cases of vaping-related lung illnesses, including 6 deaths. This should concern all Americans, especially in light of the fact that vaping and tobacco use are on the rise among American teenagers.

This runaway regulation would have hurt American families and placed a lot of private property under the thumb of federal bureaucrats. I applaud ’s actions to roll back this rule and commend him for his leadership on this issue.

As Majority Leader, one of my top priorities has been reining in the unfair, job-killing restrictions put in place by President Obama’s EPA. One of the worst was the so-called “Waters of the U.S.” rule.

And may we always keep foremost in our thoughts all the U.S. servicemembers, intelligence officers, diplomats, and first responders who have given their lives for our nation’s security.

Today, on , may the memory of the nearly 3,000 victims who lost their lives on this day in 2001 serve as a lasting reminder of what’s at stake in the fight against terrorism. May we steel our resolve to continue the hard, necessary work of defending our homeland.

Every American should take pride in the undeniable progress we have made in overcoming the terrible chapter that was opened 400 years ago. American ideals of equality and justice — not the sins of our forefathers — are the true, deepest bedrock of this great nation.

With the nation, Congress looks back to 1619 and remembers the size and scope of slavery’s stain on our history. We mark this somber anniversary with grief for all the slaves whose God-given freedoms were so brutally denied.

Today, Congress observes the 400th anniversary of a reprehensible moment in the history of our land: The first recorded arrival of enslaved Africans in England’s American colonies. The beginning of our nation’s original sin of slavery.
