Protecting Free Speech Online

Actions taken by the Biden administration to pressure Big Tech to censor content online are an attack on our fundamental right to free speech. For months, I have repeatedly condemned efforts by radical progressives in the Biden administration to silence Americans and manipulate the truth.

Today, I’m proud to join House Oversight and Government Reform Chair James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) in introducing the Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act. This commonsense legislation will prohibit federal employees from engaging in political activities while working in their official capacities and restrict senior federal officials from censoring Americans.

For too long, this administration has gotten away with actions we’d expect from the Chinese Communist Party. In the United States, free speech is fundamental to our democracy. Republicans made a promise to hold President Biden and Big Tech accountable for censoring online speech they disagree with, and we intend to keep it.
