The only way to make America great again is to vote. Sen. John Kennedy, Republican, expressed his sentiments to Chamber members and guests at Lasyone’s Meat Pie Restaurant Wednesday, Aug. 24.
Kennedy is a member of the Appropriations Committee along with four others. He and Senator Bill Cassidy (Republican) said they were working closely to get every penny possible for Louisiana. and $3.5 billion allocated for roads and bridges, “not a single penny out of the bogus infrastructure bill,” he said.
Mr Kennedy said the government under Biden “looks bad on the outside, but we have to look at it from the inside”. “If you can’t say what you want and express yourself, you’re not completely free.”
“President Biden believes in higher taxes, higher spending, bigger government, more debt than the country can produce, tighter regulation, open borders, defunding the police, and an end to America’s energy independence. I lost my sex.”
Kennedy said his belief was that if you worked hard and earned it, you should keep most of it. He said.
He further explained that Washington, DC has two divisions. “Some believe the federal government made America great, while others believe it is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. I belong to a group.”
Kennedy said 40% of gross domestic product is related to oil and gas and petrochemicals. “Biden has declared war on oil and gas…Changes to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) will make it impossible to get pipeline permits.” He said the economy could run without fossil fuels. He said he doesn’t believe in it, diametrically opposed to President Biden’s “wind, solar, wishful thinking” policy.
He also talked about crime and immigration. He said he supports the police, but when a police officer intentionally hurts someone and a crime is committed, accountability is needed. “I believe in second chances,” he said. “But I think there are people in this world who are anti-social and who only hurt others. Such people must be cut off from society. Without order, there can be no justice.”
As far as immigration is concerned, he called the United States a house with locked doors. “We lock our doors not because we hate everyone outside, but because we protect those inside.” He said legal immigration is the foundation of this country, but your You can’t carefully scrutinize who comes to your door.
On the topic of education, Kennedy tried to recall the first six US presidents in order. He said he couldn’t, but he could name his first six teachers. “Why are young repeat offenders more likely to grow up and end up in prison? One of his reasons is that they are uneducated,” he reads by his junior year. advocated the need for competence. “Social advancement does nothing. We need to find teachers who can teach and pay them what they deserve, and train or eliminate those who cannot.” “
He concluded by stating that he believes the future can be better than the present and the past.
“The water isn’t clean until you let the pigs out of the stream. How do you let the pigs out? Vote!” he said.
