On Friday, November 19th the House was able to pass President Biden’s nearly $2 trillion social spending bill, now moving on to the Senate where it will need the support of all 50 Democrats to pass, one of the last opportunities for sweeping legislation before 2022. Republican representing Missouri’s 4th district, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler is planning her run for Senate in 2022 and shares her ideas for change like her bill to end the selective military service registration as a way to abolish an unnecessary and costly system. She breaks down the difficulty some Americans are facing with higher prices due to inflation, why she believes the Democrats’ social spending bill moves the U.S. in the wrong direction, and her confidence in the GOP’s success in the 2022 midterms.
