McMorris Rodgers Hosts Successful Town Hall Meeting in Spokane

Aug 24, 2012

Spokane, WA – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) hosted a successful town hall meeting in Spokane tonight.  The public forum – which was attended by about 200 people from the Spokane area – fostered an important exchange of ideas on critical issues, including jobs, government spending, and health care. 

“Looking back on my life, I truly believe that I’ve lived the American Dream,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “And that’s why I’ve always seen my number one goal in public life as preserving that dream for our children and grandchildren.  To keep the American Dream alive, I’ve opposed the Big Government policies that have failed, while advocating for the free-market solutions that will work. 

“As your voice in Congress, I’ve fought for pro-growth policies to create jobs, common sense health care reform, an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy, better stewardship of our farms and forests, and keeping our promises to our service members, veterans and their families.

“I’ve also led the charge on issues that uniquely affect Eastern Washington – working in a bipartisan way to bring the new tankers to Fairchild Air Force Base, securing funding to complete the North-South Freeway, protecting rural health care, and expanding hydropower.”

During this session of Congress, Rep. McMorris Rodgers voted to extend the current tax rates for all Americans, repeal the government takeover of health care, pass the Balanced Budget Amendment, and approve the Keystone Pipeline.  She is the author of the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act, which passed the House, and the Keeping America Competitive through Harmonization Act, which was signed into law. 

Rep. McMorris Rodgers’ other public events this month were in Newport, Republic, Dayton, and Walla Walla.
