House Republicans are in Philadelphia organizing and planning for the next 200 days. Our top priorities? Health care, tax reform, and relief from the regulatory regime of the last eight years. Just check out our Day 1 Review to see how much ground we covered yesterday.
Today, we heard from President Trump and Vice President Pence, welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May, and hit the ground running setting the stage for this year’s legislative priorities.
Here are a few media highlights from the past two days:

“What we, I think, are recognizing… this current tax code is a disaster. It is an island that is dissolving underneath us. We cannot stay on it, because it’s failing. We’ve got to move and we’ve got to move expeditiously.” – Rep. Peter Roskam
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Fox News:
