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.”


In the afternoon, the Congresswoman sat down with Independent Journal Review for Facebook Live, where she looked forward to President Trump’s, “hopeful vision for America that people want to hear.”


…And in this interview with the Daily Caller, the Congresswoman discusses how Republicans are, “unified [and] have a 200 day plan that’s been agreed to by the House and the Senate and the Administration, and it keeps us focused.”


Just before the President’s Joint Address, the Congresswoman spoke to MSNBC’s Greta Van Susteren, where she previewed President Trump’s, “positive, unifying message” to the country.


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:

As the Congresswoman said in her Facebook Live video, at the end of the day, this is about putting people back at the center of their government. This is about people, everyone, living their version of the American Dream.
