Communications • January 27, 2015

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)
Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA)
Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)
Conference Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins (R-KS)

Chair McMorris Rodgers, Remarks as Prepared for Delivery:

“Last week, the President used a lot of middle class rhetoric – but let me tell you about middle class reality. Right now, in every corner of this country, middle class families are struggling to make ends meet. They’re moms and dads I talk to when I’m at the grocery store in Spokane who can barely afford to pay their bills at the end of the month.

“They’re our nurses who work double night shifts, our restaurant workers who’ve been laid off, and America’s young families who face rising costs at home. In fact, more middle-class Americans than ever before are falling to the bottom. Well – we’re going to make sure they climb to the top.

“That’s why we’re advancing bottom-up economic policies that empower middle-class Americans. Not with tax hikes – but with tax reform. Not with more regulations – but with more jobs. And not with bigger government – but with bigger wages. Our policies empower people, not Washington. We invite the President to join us in making that a real middle-class reality.”
