Chair McMorris Rodgers, Remarks as Prepared for Delivery:
“Today I’d like to talk about solutions. When we talk about American solutions, we have to look no further than right here to Chairman Miller, whose leadership on the VA crisis has led to a real solution that will help veterans all across the country. And as the representative of thousands of veterans in Eastern Washington who have suffered because of the VA’s mismanagement, I could not be more proud of what he has done for our men and women who have served America.
“This is what it looks like to solve the problems facing Americans. And you know what – this is just the beginning. This is one of the many solutions we advance – every single day – as House Republicans.
“So in the same way we’ve answered those veterans who couldn’t see a doctor at their local VA, we must answer those moms and dads who can’t find a job. And those students who can’t pay off their loans. And our neighbors and friends who are desperately trying to support their families and pay the bills at the end of the month. We’re here to solve the problems people face every day. Our American Solutions do that. Now let’s get to work.”
