Wishing everyone a happy #PresidentsDay2019
This Presidents Day, it’s important to remember that much more unites us than divides us as Americans. I call on all of us to do a little less finger-pointing and a little more hand-shaking.
The IHS has failed our tribal community for far too long. It’s time to hold them accountable. https://www.wsj.com/articles/south-dakota-senator-moves-for-evaluation-of-indian-health-service-11550253000?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1 …
Moving forward, it is time to stop the recklessness of continuing resolutions (CR) and the threat of government shutdowns. This is no way to run a country. The American people deserve better.
I voted for today's appropriations package b/c it avoids a second government shutdown and provides the American people with the certainty of a fully-functioning federal government. It also makes a much-needed down payment on the president’s promise to strengthen border security.
Beachfront property has little bearing on a ship’s name, as seen by the third naval vessel in history being named after the state’s capital. Read more at http://sdhspress.com/blog . #hifromsd #navy Mike Rounds U.S. Navy Naval Historical Foundation South...
Congratulations to Bill Barr, who was just confirmed by the Senate to be our next Attorney General. As our nation’s top law enforcement officer, he is committed to enforcing the law and upholding the Constitution. Looking forward to working with him in his new capacity as AG.
We must take steps to immediately address the shortcomings of the IHS that failed the victims outlined in the WSJ/FRONTLINE investigation, and so many other tribal members for far too long.
An assessment will allow us to take a close look at the failures of the IHS so that we can work in close consultation with the tribes to immediately solve these problems and begin providing the reliable care our tribal members deserve.
IHS has a trust & treaty responsibility to provide proper health care to tribal members. More on my bill here: https://www.rounds.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/rounds-reintroduces-ihs-assessment-legislation …
This news reinforces the need for my IHS assessment legislation, which I reintroduced today. Tribal members have faced unimaginable horrors because IHS has failed to meet basic benchmarks for providing timely, adequate care.
The @WSJ and @frontlinepbs recent joint investigation found out Indian Health Service repeatedly ignored signs that a pediatrician on the Pine Ridge reservation was molesting Native American children. Rather than firing him, they moved him to different IHS facilities. Appalling.
Jean does so much for our family. I'm lucky to have her by my side today and always. Happy #ValentinesDay!
Joined @SenJohnThune & @MarkWarner to introduce legislation to address the student loan debt crisis. Our bill would open up additional tools to help both students dealing with education loans and employers seeking to attract new hires.

In light of last week’s news that @Navy Secretary Richard Spencer @secnav76 is naming a Littoral Combat Ship USS Pierre, the SD State Historical Society put together a background on the history of previous vessels named for Pierre. Check it out! http://www.usagnet.com/state_headlines/state_story.php?tble=SD2019&ID=158 …
Later this week, I plan to reintroduce my IHS assessment legislation, which will take a close look at the deep-seeded systemic problems within the agency so we can take action to make certain these unimaginable horrors never happen again at the hands of #IHS. Enough is enough.
Instead, the #IHS moved him from reservation to reservation, covering up decades of sexual abuse of Native American children in Pine Ridge and elsewhere. Appalling. Failing to protect these vulnerable children is unacceptable.
#LandsPackage2019 includes my Landowner Conservation Education amdt, so landowners are made aware that perpetual conservation easements – which bind future generations into a contract with the federal govt – aren’t their only option when entering into a conservation agreement.
