Weekly Wrap-Up with Congressman Byron Donalds

Weekly Wrap-Up

with Congressman Byron Donalds

December 6, 2021


Last week the United States House of Representatives was in session as lawmakers scrambled to keep the government open following years of fiscal irresponsibility, especially in this Congress.   


Like most of you, before I entered Congress, I watched in frustration as the headlines would warn of a government shutdown. Years and years of fiscal negligence on both sides of the aisle have led to the doomsday scenario that members could solve if they passed a balanced budget. Unfortunately, the Democrats in charge on Capitol Hill want to continue kicking the can down the road and, even worse, bloat their funding bill with partisan policies like increasing the funding for refugee resettlement and preventing appropriate safeguards for the massive influx of refugees. I didn’t get sent to Congress to follow the status quo, which is why I voted NO on this Continuing Resolution. It is time we bring fiscal structure and stability to Capitol Hill.      

Last Monday, the Supreme Court heard the opening arguments for the Dobbs v. Jackson case. This case has the potential to change federal law on the books regarding abortion, tilting in favor of America’s unborn children. As you know, I am a fervent fighter for the life of the unborn, and I will always stand for pro-life policies and commit to being a voice for the voiceless.        


Finally, the November jobs report came out last week, and the data was not pretty. Anyone not living under a rock is well aware of the dire economic conditions occurring under the Biden-Harris administration. Every American feels the pain of their policies at the pump, Publix, and pretty much every aspect of daily life. The Democrats in control of Washington, D.C. are financially illiterate, and their America last domestic agenda is holding America’s great resurgence back.

Remembering Senator Bob Dole
Erika and I send our deepest condolences to the family of Bob Dole. Senator Dole lived a remarkable life that shaped our nation for generations to come. America is better today because of the service and dedication of proud patriots like him.


May he Rest In Peace.




Legislative Updates
While Democrats continue to look for the root causes of the disastrous economy & continue to blame the ongoing COVID pandemic, all roads lead back to the economic illiteracy of Democrats in power.


Read my full statement on the abysmal Nov jobs report & the overall failing American economy.




Community Engagement
At the beginning of last week, I had a great meeting with faculty members of the Florida Gulf Coast University Department of Rehabilitation where I had the opportunity to tour their facility, discuss the importance of patient access, and the critical role Physical Therapists play in our healthcare system.


Go Eagles!




In the Media
Last week, I sat down with Elizabeth MacDonald, host of ‘The Evening Edit‘ on Fox Business to discuss the rampant fraud in U.S. jobless benefits, 40% of which has ended up in the hands of the Chinese and Russians.


Democrats in Congress are hellbent on dishing out money without proper oversight to ensure U.S. taxpayer dollars ends up in the right hands.






ICYMI: This past week, I joined Laura Ingraham on Fox New’s ‘Ingraham Angle’ to discuss a recently passed bill in the House that would spend $400M for a national vaccine database.

Last week, I had the pleasure of having a conversation on Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla to discuss the nation’s leading headlines.
