House Republicans hit the airwaves this week, talking to America about Keystone XL Pipeline, Obamacare, Benghazi, and more. Check out a few highlights below. Across the spectrum, we are working to build an America that works.
Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) was on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, April 27 to discuss the Keystone XL Pipeline. Rep. Ellmers highlighted the jobs and opportunities that are being stalled by the President’s delayed decisions. The Keystone XL project will create more jobs and increase energy stability, putting Americans back to work while also easing the squeeze of every day costs.
“We in the house are going to continue to bring light on the issue. This is going to help every family in this country to bring down energy costs.”
Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PN) was on CNBC May 1, discussing Obamacare numbers and what the new findings mean for consumers and insurers. Americans need health care alternatives that will help them, not increase their costs and restrict their choices. House Republicans are focused on repealing – and replacing – Obamacare with free-market, patient-centered reforms.
“The administration has said you need about 40 percent of the sign ups to be in that younger category, that ‘young healthy’ category to make this plan sustainable… I’m wondering how this whole thing fits in a business plan to make economic sense over time.“
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) talked with S.E. Cupp on the Fox Business Network about the IRS and the DATA act. By increasing spending transparency, the DATA Act will ensure opportunities for growth and expansion.
“No longer will people receive blocks of money and not have to say where they spent it. It requires recipient reporting… the purpose they spent it for, they have to show how they spent that, and make it transparent for the American people.”
