Honoring Our Desert Shield and Desert Storm Veterans

The men and women who have served in our armed forces deserve to be recognized for their willingness to defend our country against those who would harm us. On August 27
, I will host
Desert Shield
Desert Storm
Honor Ceremonies in Greenville and Charleston. Since being elected to federal office, I have hosted several honor ceremonies for South Carolina’s veterans in an effort to show appreciation for all that they and their families have sacrificed. In 2012,

World War Two veterans

were honored, in 2013 I held

two ceremonies celebrating our Korean War era veterans

, and in 2014

our Vietnam War era veterans

were honored.

Each veteran will receive a special Senatorial Certificate of Appreciation and a pin. All interested veterans should register with my office by visiting

or calling 844-872-7626.

It is an honor to host veterans and their families in celebration of their service to our country. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Ransom Money

After weeks of denials, the Administration finally admitted that they gave Iran $400 million in ransom payments. We are all happy to see Americans unjustly imprisoned in Iran return home, but the President has set a dangerous precedent and put a price on American lives.

This reckless decision making and lack of transparency only adds to the American public’s distrust of this Administration's dangerous foreign policy. On an international level, negotiating with a country that we know supports terrorism undermines our presence. This is not the leadership our country needs.

Obamacare in Freefall

As Obamacare continues to fail, we have consistently seen a lack of options, rising premiums and high deductibles for American families across the country. Aetna’s looming departure from the healthcare exchange will now leave many South Carolinians with only two choices for healthcare.

South Carolinians deserve to have choices when it comes to selecting the best care for their families, and the Affordable Care Act has proven time and time again that it has negatively impacted how Americans are covered. It is time that the Administration stop trying to prop-up a bill that was flawed to begin with.

Around South Carolina

Last week, I continued my road trip around South Carolina and stopped in Georgetown, Kingstree, Manning and Columbia. In Georgetown, I met some great young men at the Tara Hall Home for Boys, in Kingstree I sat down with officials from Williamsburg Technical College, and in Manning I had a town hall with constituents from around the area.

I also had the privilege of sitting down with Congressman Trey Gowdy, law enforcement officials and pastors from across the state of South Carolina to discuss what needs to be done to improve community-police relations. You can check out

Hearing from constituents from around the state is the best part of my job. I look forward to continuing my 46 county tour in the months to come.
