Opening the Doors of Opportunity for Everyone in Eastern Washington

“The budget we’ll pass this week – and the appropriations bills that will fund our Military and empower our veterans – are just examples of how Congress is working together to get things done for the American people. “

WASHINGTON, DC – At a House Republican leadership press conference today, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) highlighted the many solutions she is advancing for the people of Eastern Washington:

“Good morning! I’d like to start today by wishing my son Cole a happy eighth birthday! And you know, when I look at Cole, he reminds me every day that the work we do here in Congress matters. It matters for the families back home in Eastern Washington, who save their money and balance their budgets so they can send their kids to college. It matters for our veterans – who face extraordinary challenges when it comes to getting the care they need. And it matters for the next generation – for Cole and the millions of kids like him who want to be given an opportunity to succeed.

“That’s why this week I look forward to voting on a final budget agreement – one that holds Congress accountable to the people, balances in 10 years, and ensures that we’re leaving a stronger America for our children and grandchildren. The budget we’ll pass this week – and the appropriations bills that will fund our Military and empower our veterans – are just examples of how Congress is working together to get things done for the American people. Every day, we’re opening the doors of opportunity to people all across this country. That’s why we’re here – and that’s who we’re fighting for.”
