I have been working with President Trump to cut taxes, lower the cost of health care and create jobs in the United States.

Energy & Jobs

Energy & Jobs

Thanks to Louisiana workers, we are leading our country into an era of energy dominance. I am championing legislation to get rid of the red tape and obstacles standing in the way of our oil and gas producers. President Trump is supporting our efforts to drive Louisiana in the right direction and create good-paying jobs in the Pelican State.

Health Care

Health Care

Health Care

As a doctor treating uninsured patients in Louisiana’s charity hospital system for over 25 years, I’ve seen firsthand how government-run health care fails patients. Now, as Louisiana’s U.S. senator, my mission is to lower the cost and improve the quality of health care to ensure every Louisianan can have affordable coverage. Democrats are pushing Medicare-for-all that would triple taxes, take away your ability to choose the care that’s best for your family and force all Americans into a one size fits all plan. Meanwhile, I am leading the effort in Congress to lower drug prices and create competition, allowing you to choose something better.

Securing Our Border

Securing Our Border

Securing Our Border

We have a crisis on the southern border. We have an immigration system that rewards those who break the law. Human traffickers and drug dealers are pouring into our communities. With over 60,000 Americans dying each year due to cartel fueled opioid overdoses, every state has become a border state. Securing our borders is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the federal government. Democrats are calling for open borders and trying to abolish law enforcement agencies responsible for stopping drug cartels and human traffickers. I am working with President Trump to build the wall, stop the flow of drugs and secure our southern border.

Judges

Judges

Since President Trump took office, Democrats in Washington, D.C. have done everything they can to delay and obstruct us from approving his nominees to the federal government. Thanks to strong Republican leadership, we have approved over 180 conservative judges to lifetime appointments. Conservative Judges uphold the Constitution, not create laws from the bench. I voted to confirm Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. These courts will decide the most important cases of our time, including attacks on the second amendment and the right to life. While Democrats in Washington threaten to use the courts as a political tool, I’m standing with President Trump to preserve the independence of the judicial branch and the integrity of our democracy.

Taxes

Taxes

Taxes

The solution to Washington’s spending problem will never be taking more money from American families. While Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are trying to elect more liberals to raise your taxes, I have worked with President Trump to put more money in your pocket. We passed the largest tax cut in a generation and are working to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse in government. Congress needs to fix Washington’s spending problem and we need more fiscal conservatives in office to do it.

Supporting Our Veterans And Military

Supporting Our Veterans And Military

With the help of President Trump, we are successfully rebuilding our military. This year, we passed the largest pay raise in history for our men and women in uniform. We must support our troops.

When first elected to the Senate, I asked to be a member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee to represent the hundreds of thousands of veterans in Louisiana and ensure all veterans have the resources they need when reentering civilian life. On that committee, I have focused on improving veteran access to quality health care and holding members of the VA accountable for the health outcomes of our veterans.

After hearing reports that uncovered data showing over 100 VA nursing homes had higher rates of infections and decline in daily living skills than private facilities, I introduced and passed legislation to require the VA to publish the quality ratings of its 133 nursing homes nationwide. This information will help us ensure the VA is held accountable for veterans’ outcomes and we can ensure they are receiving the best care possible.

Finding out the VA was requiring veterans to travel across the country for an organ transplant they could have received at a more qualified hospital miles from their home was concerning. As a doctor, I know this can lead to worse outcomes for those veterans. I secured passage of legislation as part of the VA MISSION Act to allow eligible veterans to receive these life-saving surgeries closer to home and I am working on legislation to bring better outcomes to all veterans.

Protecting Our Constitutional Rights

Protecting Our Constitutional Rights

Protecting Our Constitutional Rights

I will always vote to defend Americans’ constitutional rights set forth by our Founding Fathers. The Constitution is the highest law of the land. Despite this, groups like Antifa are threatening conservative Americans’ freedom of speech and the Left has politicized national tragedies to demonize law-abiding gun owners. Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” The fight to preserve our democracy begins with defending the foundational document on which our country rests.
