Dear Friends,

We have a big week ahead in Washington, with a vote on the pro-life Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act tomorrow and welcoming many South Carolinians to our nation’s Capitol for the Pope’s visit.

Protecting Life

Tonight I will be speaking on the Senate floor regarding the importance of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which bans abortions after 20 weeks, or about 5 months. Earlier this year I helped introduce this important legislation, which studies show could save more than 18,000 lives in our nation.

The full Senate will vote on the bill tomorrow, and I am hopeful we can take a meaningful step forward in our efforts to protect life. You can click the picture below to live stream the Senate floor, where I am planning to speak in the second half of the 7 o’clock hour.

Stopping Premium Hikes

I have introduced bipartisan legislation, the
, to help protect small and mid-sized businesses from premium hikes due to the Affordable Care Act. A recent report projects that approximately two-thirds of mid-sized businesses, their employees and their families could see an average 18 percent premium increase due to how the Affordable Care Act expands the definition of the small group market.

reported today
, “Members of Congress from both parties, as well as some employers, insurers and state insurance commissioners, are calling for changes in the Affordable Care Act to prevent premium increases that are expected to affect workers at many small and midsize companies next year.” I will keep fighting to fully repeal Obamacare, and for legislation like my PACE Act to protect the American people from the ACA’s harmful effects.

Breast Cancer Awareness

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to help build awareness my office is asking for folks to share their personal stories and pictures. Building awareness across the nation is step one to beating this disease, and we will be focusing throughout October on these efforts.

If you have a story or picture to share, whether currently fighting the disease, a survivor or a loved one, please email
