Cathy McMorris Rodgers Remarks as Delivered:
It is always important to spend time in your district listening to people, hearing their concerns.
It was great to have an extended time to do that and overall I would say people do want to see results.
They see this as an exciting opportunity to really rethink this government from top to bottom.
They also recognize that we must get this economy growing. We must create jobs and we must unleash innovation in this country.
They are very pleased to see that we are rolling back the regulatory burden that has been suffocating our economy.
As I listened and traveled around Eastern Washington I held a number of Coffees with Cathy and Conversations with Cathy, whether it was with farmers or talking infrastructure or healthcare. You know, people see this as an opportunity to think big, get the results and I come back re-energized because of that.
I am committed to making a difference for them, using this as an opportunity to do the big things the people really want to see us done.
