The White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain recently retweeted a preposterous claim that inflation is a "high class problem." I disagree.
Those who are old enough to have witnessed the tragic events on Sept. 11, 2001, remember exactly where they were when they heard of the attacks.
In the last decade, more than 68 million acres of land in the United States have been destroyed by wildfires. Last month, as we toured Utah’s 1st Congressional District together, we witnessed firsthand the aftermath of several recent wildfires ranging from the high Uintas to Parleys Canyon.
More than 75 million acres across America have burned in the last decade. The California cities of Paradise and Concow were both destroyed in 2018, and tragically, 349 wildfire-related fatalities have occurred in the past 20 years.
Democrats may think of themselves as modern-day Robin Hoods--taking from the rich to give to the poor--but as they have their way, Arkansas businesses and families are seeing the equivalency of a tax hike in a very sneaky way: through inflation.
To put it simply, Democrats are on a spending spree that hardworking Americans cannot afford.
This year, we celebrate the 245th birthday of the United States. Independence Day is a great day to picnic with friends, spend time outside, and enjoy a fireworks show, but it is also much more than that. It is our duty to honor the men and women who, for the past two and a half centuries, have kept our county free.
Could growing a trillion trees be the key to addressing climate change? Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Ark., Congress’ only forester, says yes.
When COVID-19 kept millions of Americans home, many of us spent our free time checking off home improvement projects that had been on our lists for years. Updated shelves, a new garden shed, maybe even an addition to the kitchen – there was more time than ever to do it yourself. It wasn’t just homeowners, either, as many restaurants constructed covered outdoor dining areas.
The two main benchmarks of environmental health are clean air and clean water. Healthy forests are critical for both. Unfortunately, years of catastrophic wildfires across the western United States have decimated many of our forests, turning critical wildlife habitats into ash and making it more difficult for trees to regenerate naturally.
