Cathy McMorris Rodgers Remarks as Delivered:
“Good morning everyone.
“Over the next few weeks and months we’re going to be talking with people all across this country about A Better Way.
“A Better Way to make America the best place to live, to work, to build things, to raise a family.
“Today people are anxious. We are all anxious. We’re on edge. You know what? There’s A Better Way.
“We want to live safe and free.
“We want a tax code that works for us not against us.
“We want access to healthcare that we and our families can afford.
“Where we can break free from the cycle of poverty, and where everyone from a startup in a garage to the corner market on Main Street is truly encouraged to grow and hire their friends and neighbors.
“Where everyone can live the American Dream. But more than anything, what people want right now is to be heard. And that’s why it is so important and fundamental that we restore [the] people’s voice in their government and uphold the Constitution.
“Until the American people are once again the decision makers A Better Way won’t be possible.
“So let’s reaffirm a government of the people, by the people, and for the people speaking through their elected representatives — so we can restore a Confident America.”
