News and Upcoming Events for October 1, 2019
 Think National Act Local
The Socialist Democrats are at it again. Impeach Trump screams the liberal media. Cries for impeachment would normally be concerning. However, we’ve heard the same gnashing of teeth day after day, year after year, since Hillary lost to the “basket of deplorables” in 2016.  The Socialist Democrats have been trying desperately to orchestrate a “soft” coup for three years. They’ve tried everything from Russian collusion to Stormy Daniels, to Trump hangs his toilet paper in the wrong direction. The latest allegations that call for “Impeachment?” will once again prove to be nothing more than Socialist Democrats in congress and their comrades in the media trying to overturn YOUR decision in the last Presidential Election. Impeachment is also their only option for beating Trump in 2020.
All politics is local so they say, yet the local parties are the foundation for what we see on the national stage. It does matter that Republicans control local offices. It’s about more than local budgets, projects, roads, etc… It is also about the national conversation. To vote Democrat in the upcoming election is to give a wink and a nod to the charade taking place in Washington.

Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger  (from 9/27/19 Newsletter)
Our state and the nation recognizes September as National Recovery Month to help raise awareness about drug addiction and celebrate those who have found help. This year’s theme – Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We are Stronger – highlights the need to share resources and build networks to support the many paths to recovery.
To continue Indiana’s fight against addiction, I supported a new law removing treatment barriers by allowing Hoosiers in need of addiction services to be admitted to an inpatient treatment facility, regardless of their sobriety. Before this law, a person who was not sober or in withdrawal could have been turned away from the help they needed. Local treatment options are also important, that’s why I supported a law allowing community addiction treatment and related transportation assistance programs to receive grants in order to provide vital services.
We are making progress, with opioid prescriptions in Indiana decreasing by over 35 percent in the last five years. Still, too many are fighting addiction. If you or someone you know is ready to start the path to recovery, please reach out to Indiana’s Addiction Hotline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or click here. Join the voices for recovery, and remember, together WE ARE STRONGER.

Indiana ranks as a national leader in computer science education
Improving Indiana’s educational opportunities has been one of the top priorities of the Indiana General Assembly for many years, and the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) recently shared a new report that highlights Indiana as a national leader in computer science education. According to the IDOE, the 2019 State of Computer Science Education report recognizes Indiana for being one of only five states in the nation to implement all nine policies of Code.org’s Advocacy Coalition, and one of only three states to significantly increase computer science education funding over the past year.

Protecting All Life (from 9/27 Newsletter)

Recently, it came to light that former South Bend abortion physician Dr. Ulrich Klopfer had over 2,000 preserved fetal remains in his Illinois residence. While the story continues to unfold and we await more details, we can agree that this news is disturbing and the behavior Dr. Klopfer appears to have demonstrated is unacceptable.

The General Assembly has worked to create policies that protect all life and defend our most vulnerable Hoosiers. For example, during the 2019 legislative session, we passed a measure that makes horrific dismemberment abortions illegal unless necessary to prevent a serious health risk to the mother or to save the mother’s life.

As your state senator, I will always work to protect life, and I will continue to monitor the news surrounding this shocking and disturbing story as we move forward.


Young, Braun Introduce Bill to Ensure Dignified Burial for Aborted Fetal Remains 
(from 9/27/19 Press Release) 
 The disturbing discovery of over 2,000 aborted fetal remains in the home of an Indiana abortion doctor this month brought to light the all too common issue of fetal remains being disrespected. Indiana has led the way on this issue with a 2016 law signed by Governor Mike Pence to protect the dignity of fetal remains, which was upheld this year by the Supreme Court.
 Senator Young (R-Ind.) and Senator Braun (R-Ind.) introduced a bill to enforce guidelines for the dignified handling of aborted fetal remains and penalties for failing to respect the sanctity of human life: S.2950, the Dignity for Aborted Children Act.

 “I will always fight to protect innocent life and ensure all children are treated with dignity,” said Senator Young. “The recent discovery of over 2,200 fetal remains in the home of an Indiana abortionist proves there is a deeply disturbing problem with our current system. That’s why I joined a group of Senators to introduce the Dignity for Aborted Children Act to ensure the bodies of the unborn are treated with respect.”

 “The discovery of thousands of fetal remains in an Indiana abortionist’s home horrified every American who respects the sanctity of life, and highlighted a disturbing trend that Indiana has taken the lead in rectifying,” said Senator Braun. “All human remains, regardless of stage of life, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and I’m proud to introduce the Dignity for Aborted Children Act to ensure that grotesque collections like Dr. Klopfer’s can’t be allowed to happen ever again.”

Reactions to Impeachment Inquiry:
Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill ( from 9/25/19 Press release):-
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to open an impeachment inquiry into President Trump is a blatant disservice to the American people and a desperate attempt to overturn the 2016 election,” stated Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill. “Rather than our representatives in Congress addressing real issues of concern such as the ever-growing crisis at our border, the rapid increase in violent crime, and defending the rights of freedom-seeking Americans, the American people may now be forced to watch their Congress waste the next several months with yet another investigation – the modern equivalent of a circus sideshow. This is an embarrassment and needs to be stopped.”
Indiana GOP (Facebook Post):   “Presidential Harassment.”
Nancy Pelosi and her socialist-leaning Democrat allies have noticed the positive trajectory of our country – more than 6.3 million new jobs, unemployment at historic lows, strong wage growth and lower taxes – and they need a distraction. And so they’re trying to impeach President Donald Trump.
Indiana Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D.( from 9/24/19 Facebook post)
Today, Speaker Pelosi made it clear that she is more focused on politics and Presidential harassment than working for the American people. While the President and Republicans in Congress are working hard to better the lives of the American people, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have taken a radical step towards the progressive left-wing of the Democratic party that has been focused on impeachment rather than lowering drug costs, bolstering infrastructure, and passing the USMCA – work the American people elected us to do. This blatant attempt to pander to the farthest left voters clearly demonstrates to the American people that it is the extreme voices of the far left who are really in charge of House Democrats. The American people should be appalled.
Indiana Senator Mike Braun
(from 9/26/19 Facebook post)
Democrats have baselessly attacked President Trump since before he was elected. Let’s show the President that Hoosiers won’t fall for liberal political games.
