Romney: Rescue Committees Would Help Save Trust Funds

Joins CNBC to discuss newly introduced TRUST Act to protect taxpayers, trust funds
What you have is a setting where we have a series of trust funds, and the funding for these trust funds takes up about two-thirds of all federal spending. So, if you ever want to see a balanced budget, if you ever want to get out of debt, you have to deal with these trust funds.

Romney, Murphy Statement on Need for Bipartisan Action on NCAA Reform

The NCAA Board of Governors finally recognized that change is coming, and they need to adapt their rules to catch up with the times. We believe those rules must be changed to allow athletes to be compensated. The name, image and likeness approach has its own challenges that we must address, and we’ll be carefully reviewing the NCAA’s next steps and working on ways Congress can reform college sports.

Romney Leads Bipartisan, Bicameral Legislation to Protect Taxpayers, Trust Funds

It’s irresponsible for Congress to keep ignoring a preventable crisis. We must put in place a responsible process now to prevent dramatic cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare or be forced to enact massive tax hikes down the road, both of which would be devastating to middle class Americans. We have a duty to work to secure these programs that provide a safety net for millions of Americans.

Romney Urges TSP Board to Reverse Decision to Steer Federal Retirement Savings to China

The decision to shift the TSP’s I Funds Index will expose nearly $50 billion in retirement assets of federal government employees, including members of the U.S. Armed Forces, to severe and undisclosed material risks associated with many of the Chinese companies listed on the MSCI ACWI ex-US IMI. If implemented, the decision will effectively use these retirement savings to fund the Chinese government and Communist Party’s efforts to undermine U.S. economic and national security. 

Romney Joins Western Senators in Introducing Legislation to Provide Financial Certainty for Utah’s Rural Counties

Legislation would reauthorize PILT and SRS programs
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) this week co-sponsored two pieces of legislation introduced by a bipartisan group of Western senators that would provide long-term financial security for rural counties by reauthorizing the Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (SRS) programs.

Romney, Murphy Statement on President’s Syria Announcement

The President’s decision to abandon our Kurdish allies in Northern Syria in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal that will have grave humanitarian and national security consequences. After enlisting support from the Kurds to help destroy ISIS and assuring Kurdish protection from Turkey, the U.S. has now opened the door to their destruction. This severely undercuts America’s credibility as a reliable partner and creates a power vacuum in the region that benefits ISIS.

Romney Statement on President’s Recent Comments

When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated. By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.

Romney Calls for Financial Certainty for Utah’s Rural Counties

Congress has an obligation to ensure counties with large swaths of federally-owned, tax-exempt forests and rangelands can adequately provide essential services for their residents. As history has proved, without the certainty of these two critical programs, schools, libraries, and jails will close. The services counties continue to provide will see a reduction in staffing and resources. Roads will go unpaved and become unsafe. Mental health and physical health services will be scaled back and in...
