Republican Leadership Press Conference

“Our American Solutions are simple: they empower people with more jobs and greater opportunity. Period.”

Republican Leadership Press Conference
July 15, 2014

Participants:
Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)
Majority Leader-elect Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)
Majority Whip-elect Steve Scalise (R-LA)
Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)
Conference Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins (R-KS)
Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR)

Chair McMorris Rodgers, Remarks as Prepared for Delivery:
“There’s a lot of talk here in Washington about what the American people want. But instead of all the talking, it’s time for Washington to start listening. When I’m back home in Spokane, people – no matter what they do or where they’re from – tell me they want one thing from Washington: they want solutions. They want solutions that empower them to make their own choices, afford their bills at the end of the month, and find good-paying jobs so they can support themselves and their families. And right now – when less than half of adults in the U.S. are working full time – it’s clear we need better solutions.

“House Republicans have acted for along time. Our American Solutions are simple: they empower people with more jobs and greater opportunity. Period. They empower people in the job market, at the doctor’s office, and in their homes. We’ve passed dozens of bills that would help Americans get jobs and bring home higher paychecks – but they’re just sitting in the Senate because Harry Reid refuses to act on them. We have listened. Now we need to come together. We urge the Senate to put solutions over inaction. The American people are waiting.”
