Life On Capitol Hill

Morgan Luttrell Breaks Down Misinformation, Lays Out Learning Curves, Behind The Scenes Look From A Freshman Congressman

A man’s man. A Patriot’s Patriot. A distinguished veteran as a U.S. Navy SEAL. And now a newly elected U.S. congressman. What a resume this week’s Team Never Quit Guest brings to the table as he brings an eye-opening discussion related to the role of a Congressman.
Once a co-host of this very podcast, Morgan’s conversation with his twin brother Marcus Luttrell makes for an episode you don’t want to miss.
Morgan’s life has perennially been one of service to others. A 5th generation Texan raised on a horse ranch. At an early age Morgan learned the importance of hard work, discipline, and personal responsibility. He turned his strong values, deep love for his country, and his passion for helping others into a career of distinguished service.
Morgan Luttrell brings bold leadership, and a “Put America First” mentality to his role as a U.S. Congressman.

In this episode you will hear:
• There’s an energy that lives [in a mob situation] and if you become a part of it, you may find yourself in a situation like “I didn’t intend to be here.” (3:59)
• The DC Police did an amazing job of showing restraint [at the January 6th situation]. There were situations where they were getting close to death. (4:41)
• The criminal justice system [in DC] is, you could say, “broken.” (5:38)
• DC is a dumpster fire. They wanted everybody that lives in DC to have the right to vote, even if you’re a Chinese citizen working for the Chinese government; if you’re a Russian citizen working for the Russian embassy. (6:27)
• Another role and responsibility of the lower chamber of congress is we control the purse strings. (9:19)
• Passing legislation and controlling government money is what congress men and women do. (11:18)
• We’re not at the cliff edge; we’re over it. We spend more than we take in. (13:14)
• I don’t care about red or blue anymore. We’re here – 31 Trillion dollars in debt. I don’t care which administration did it.  (13:49)
• We, in the past decades, have been increasing our debt limit, all the way up to 31 Trillion. (14:32)
• It needs to be said that if we don’t increase the debt ceiling and we default – that’s a problem. (21:52)
• There’s a point in time we’ll be paying more on the interest of our debt, than we pay on our defense budget. (23:19)
• When the cameras are on, people will turn the switch on and they become actors. (24:59)
• Abraham Lincoln coined the word “lobbyist” because people would hang out in the lobby of his hotel and when he’d come down, they would just bum rush him and say we this, this, and this, and this is what we’ll do for you. (30:14)
• I would never complain about this job, because I fought so hard to get it. (39:03)
• The border’s a dumpster fire. (42:23)
• It’s very humbling to walk through the hall of the Capitol. There’s so much history. (43:33)
• The best part of my job is I get to meet so many people. (63:51)
• The hardest part about campaigning is that it’s 24/7. (64:37)
