WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 20, 2017) – U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump was sworn into office.
“It’s an exciting time in our nation’s capital. An Inauguration is a time of new beginnings. It brings with it hope of a better tomorrow for everyone in this country. We cherish the peaceful transfer of power. Today means a fresh start and an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. We have new leadership and a unified Republican government. This moment is a call from the American people — it’s time to be legendary, to think big, and to reimagine government. It’s time to put the voice of every man, woman, and child in this country back where it belongs: at the core of our representative government.
“I look forward to working with President Trump and Vice President Pence to offer relief to workers and families across this country. This is the positive disruption Americans have been waiting for, and now we’re ready to make America great again.”
