Even amid hardship and trial, as Americans, we have much to be thankful for. Our freedoms, values, and quality of life–protected courageously by our own men and women in uniform–are unparalleled. From my family to yours: Happy Thanksgiving!

There is only one way to eat leftover turkey: in a sandwich–with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mayonnaise, and (if you have to) a little lettuce.

There are two bills floating around Washington. The first, I like—it's bipartisan and will provide needed upgrades to our nation's physical infrastructure. The second, I dislike—it's a partisan, half-baked spending bill that actually gives huge tax breaks to NY and CA's wealthy.
"This bill is not yet fully baked; it will continue to pingpong between the Democrats in the House and in the Senate," @MittRomney writes for @DNewsOpinion. #BuildBackBetter deseret.com/opinion/2021/11/…

A win for Utah and a win for the country is more important than who gets the credit—that's why I worked with my Republican and Democrat colleagues to craft a bipartisan infrastructure bill that includes numerous wins for communities across the country. deseret.com/opinion/2021/11/…

In stark contrast to Democrats' partisan social spending bill, our bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—now law—shows the American people that it is possible to break the logjam and make responsible investments, without raising taxes or worsening inflation.

Democrats desperately want people to think that the two major bills in Washington at the moment—the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the partisan, half-baked social spending bill—are the same thing. They're not. In fact, they're stunningly different. deseret.com/opinion/2021/11/…

I will vote to reconfirm Jay Powell as @federalreserve Chairman. I believe he’s a person of capability and integrity. While I disagree with some of the Fed’s prior policies, his recent comments give me hope that the Fed is ready to address the rising inflation we’re experiencing.

A house built on sand will not stand: BBB programs intended to be permanent actually disappear—hiding their true cost & debt. And how about huge tax breaks for wealthy New Yorkers and Californians? I hope and believe enough Dem senators of honor & honesty will join us to say no.

We must take decisive action toward China’s growing aggression and dissuade them from pursuing a predatory path. My amendments to this year's defense bill would require the U.S. to develop a comprehensive China strategy and strengthen relationships with our allies and partners.

It's unacceptable that China gets the honor of hosting the @Olympics while the CCP commits genocide against Uyghurs. I offered a measure to implement a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Games—sending a strong message to the CCP while safeguarding the dreams of U.S. athletes.

The withdrawal from Afghanistan was nothing short of a humanitarian and foreign policy disaster. I'm also offering NDAA amendments that expand the Special Immigrant Visa eligibility for vulnerable Afghans and commend U.S. friends and allies for aiding in evacuation efforts.

It's critical that we defend our nuclear stockpile and the strategic delivery systems that are necessary to deter adversaries engaged in nuclear buildups and modernizations. I'm offering an amendment that supports the role of Utah’s @HAFB in bolstering the U.S. nuclear deterrent.

"Congress did something that it all too often struggles to do — took decisive action and passed meaningful, bipartisan legislation that will help Utah address some of our state’s most pressing growth challenges," Andrew Gruber writes for @DNewsOpinion. deseret.com/opinion/2021/11/…

Our withdrawal from Afghanistan left us showered with shame. We've left behind thousands, broken promises to friends & allies, abandoned women & girls, and put our national security at risk. We have a moral responsibility to ensure every American and partner is safely evacuated.
