Chair McMorris Rodgers, Remarks as Prepared for Delivery:

“Good morning, everyone.

“Next week marks five years since the Republicans took control of the House, under the leadership of Speaker Boehner. After years of out-of-control spending and blatant disregard for budgets, the House Republicans made the country’s economic health a priority.

“In those five years we enacted the first real entitlement reform in nearly two decades.

“We cut spending by more than $2.1 trillion, which is the most significant spending reduction in modern history. And we passed the first 10-year House-Senate balanced budget plan since 2001.

“I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished since taking the reins, and thankful for Speaker Boehner’s leadership in making it possible. Later this week we will vote to elect our next Speaker. We will continue to make the American people’s priorities our priorities.

“We are more determined than ever to expand opportunities, empower our innovators, and make the American dream an attainable goal for everyone in this country.”
