I found Tuesday’s vote on H.R. 5247, the so-called “Right to Try Act,” incredibly disappointing. The measure failed 259 to 140, given that it was brought up under what is called “suspension of the rules,” wherein it needed a two-thirds majority for passage. I voted yes.

Yesterday, the House voted on H.R. 4909, the STOP School Violence Act of 2018.
1. Do you support legislation that would ban the ownership of assault weapons like the one used in the Florida school shooting?
Mark Sanford (MS): NO...but this is not to say that I think everyone should have access to them.
2. Do you support legislation that would provide for arming classroom teachers? YES or NO
They say a couple times in a row creates a pattern. Unfortunately, there seems to be a pattern unfolding wherein the more heart-wrenching the cause, the greater the odds that they won’t bother to pay for it.
Balance is a delicate thing. Do you remember those seesaws that we used to play on as children? Just a little more weight on one side, and the whole seesaw moved down on that side. A touch more weight on the other, and it went the opposite direction...equilibrium was difficult.
Sometimes the right thing at the wrong time can be the wrong thing.
The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law by President Bush in 1990. It was a well-intentioned measure designed to give those with disabilities greater access to many things that most of us take for granted. I believe that makes sense.
