In the morning, the Congresswoman spoke at the weekly House Republican Leadership press conference about her excitement for the President’s Joint Address, where she also recapped her most recent meetings across Eastern Washington: “As I was in Walla Walla visiting and celebrating a new veterans home, in Spokane visiting a school for the hearing impaired, or in the community bringing people together to talk about how we unify around shared goals, I was reminded that it’s most important to listen to one another and focus on the values that unite us as Americans.”

I was reminded again last week that the best ideas come from people all across this country. As I was in Walla Walla visiting and celebrating a new veterans home, in Spokane visiting a school for the hearing impaired, or in the community bringing people together to talk about how we unify around shared goals, I was reminded that it’s most important to listen to one another and focus on the values that unite us as Americans.

Followed by an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, where the Congresswoman reiterated Republicans’ commitment to repeal and replace the failed Obamacare law with a 21st Century, people-first health care system:

Here, I tell Erin Burnett OutFront that we can and must do better than Obamacare, and Republicans are on track with our plan to rescue Americans from this failing law. After talking about this with Erin, I was especially glad to hear President Donald J. Trump say in his speech last night that he’ll work with us to ensure people with pre-existing conditions have access to health care.
