“82% of the American people said they wanted Congress to work together to achieve what is best for the country. And in the last five months, that is exactly what we have done. And we’ve done it because we have listened to you.”

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) delivered the following remarks at a House Republican leadership press conference today:

“This week marks another important week here in Congress – one in which this House Republican Majority will advance real solutions for the American people. You know, five months ago, when the House Republican Majority was elected, 82% of the American people said they wanted Congress to work together to achieve what is best for the country. And in the last five months, that is exactly what we have done. And you know what – we’ve done it because we have listened to you.

“We’ve listened to seniors – and we’ve passed permanent, bipartisan entitlement reform – the ‘Doc Fix’ – to help protect them. We’ve listened to our moms, dads, students, and families back at home – and we passed a budget that holds Congress accountable to them, and begun an Appropriations process that reflects their priorities. And we’ve listened to those on the front lines of our national defense – our troops, service-members, and military families, like those back at Fairchild Air Force Base in Eastern Washington – and we’re advancing legislation this week that protects them.

“Those are just a few of many solutions coming out of this House Republican majority. In the last five months, this Congress has made you the priority. We hear your concerns. We care. And we will continue to listen.”
