(Washington, D.C.) Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers announced her support for a bipartisan plan to help stabilize the economy. “I know how expensive every day necessities like food and fuel are,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Combine that with a sliding stock market and turmoil in the housing industry, people in Eastern Washington and across the rest of America are increasingly worried about the economy.”
McMorris Rodgers supports bipartisan solutions that will create jobs and jumpstart our economy.
Such solutions McMorris Rodgers supports include:
Keeping taxes low and lowering them even further to make sure you have the money to afford the things you need
Keeping wasteful government spending in check
Lowering energy costs
Expanding access to affordable, high-quality health care
“More taxes and more government spending are not the solution to restoring confidence in the American economy,” McMorris Rodgers said. “We cannot tax our way to an economic recovery and we cannot wastefully spend our way into job creation.”
Republicans and Democrats must come together to deliver a package of solutions that will spur job creation and put America on a stronger economic footing. McMorris Rodgers says that requires a bipartisan solution. “Americans won’t put up with the same-old, same-old from Washington. It’s clear that Washington, D.C. is broken and the American people are searching for leaders who will fix it.”
McMorris Rodgers looks forward to working with members of both parties to improve the economy and focus on other items important to Eastern Washington.
