President Biden’s proposed budget is designed to satisfy his base, not to actually become law. Raising corporate taxes would cause companies and good jobs to leave America, as they have in the past.

Senator Romney joined a bipartisan group of his colleagues, led by Senators Warner (D-VA) and Thune (R-SD), in introducing the Restricting the Emergence of Security Threats that Risk Information and Communications Technology (RESTRICT) Act.

Doing the right thing for another nation can also be the right thing for America. It is in America’s interest to support Ukraine. If Russia were able to conquer, brutalize and subjugate Ukraine with impunity, expect it to wage war again — and expect those wars to damage our economy and threaten our security.
