Why Trump Isn't the Inevitable Nominee

February 24, 2016 - 11:30am

After months of dismissing Donald Trump, many pundits are now anointing him with the Republican presidential nomination. I find this premature. With Tuesday night’s win in the Nevada caucuses, Trump has only 79 of the 1,237 delegates needed. He is "stuck" in the mid-30s of support, sufficient to win primaries with a platoon of candidates, but not in a head-to-head race.

President Obama’s ‘Plan’ to Close Guantanamo Bay Is Dangerous

February 23, 2016 - 12:00pm

President Obama’s dangerous and disastrous national security policy continues with the release of his so-called “plan” to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. After seven years, President Obama has still not explained to the American people in sufficient detail where, under what authorities, and at what cost he will detain some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists.

Apple, You Lying, Thieving Bunch of Technocrats

February 18, 2016 - 8:00am

With four of Florida ports among the nation’s top‭ ‬25‭ ‬container ports and three among the‭ ‬top cruise ports in the world,‭ ‬the economic vitality of Florida’s ports should be an important focus of our state leaders.‭ ‬These ports are hubs of commerce and tourism that generate high-paying,‭ ‬sustainable jobs for Floridians while cementing our role and brand as the gateway for the Americas.

A Larger, More Capable Fleet Key to National Security

February 12, 2016 - 3:00pm

The president released his fiscal year 2017 budget proposal on Tuesday. I will scrutinize its contents - line by line - to ensure that our nation’s treasure is not squandered on wasteful programs or harmful tax hikes.  There’s a lot of work ahead, but one area has broad bipartisan support - the size and capability of our Navy fleet. The world is a dangerous place. Make no mistake, my fight will focus on building the most robust, highly-capable fleet.

February 9, 2016 - 9:15am

Allow Vulnerable Medicaid Recipients to Choose Their Pharmacies

February 5, 2016 - 1:30pm

Most recently, many health insurance providers have drastically restricted Medicaid Managed Care networks throughout Florida. Those restrictions are forcing patients to leave their trusted pharmacist and go to a pharmacy their health plan chooses for them. Such unnecessary restrictions limit consumer choice, restrict healthy business competition and prevent access to community pharmacies.
