Congressman Alex Mooney at work on issues that West Virginians really care about
From earlier this week:
I am proud to introduce H.R. 9157, the “Gold Standard Restoration Act.”— Rep. Alex Mooney (@RepAlexMooney) . . .

Last night, Sean Hannity aired a private voicemail between Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. I found these reactions to Fox and Hannity to be among the best:
As a recovering addict, i know how difficult it is tto be in the grips of drug addiction.

“Common ground” Joe and Shelley the distinguished lecturer
Senator Manchin keeps looking for common ground and bipartisanship with Republicans. Don’t look now, Senator, but you’ve become the common ground
