In the following interviews, House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) joins Neil Cavuto on Fox Business and Kevin Cirilli on Bloomberg TV to highlight how the American people are Better Off Now due to our booming economy. After years of struggling to get ahead, the American people are seeing jobs, opportunity, and confidence come roaring back. For more on that, visit Better.gop.

“Two years ago, the House Republicans’ agenda was around A Better Way. We spent time putting together that agenda — A Better Way on our economy, on our national security. And two years later, we have kept those promises and now we see the results. We see a booming economy right now.

“Better Off Now is answering the question that many Americans have every day: am I better off? We’re here to say: look at the numbers. You are better off today than you were two years ago when we put together the Better Way agenda. I would encourage people to go to Better.gop. You can see all the numbers. We’ve had over a million jobs created since the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act was signed into law. There are more job openings than people looking for work. Unemployment last month was at 4 percent — the lowest in decades. Historic records for low black unemployment all across the board. It’s a good news story and we want to take some time and celebrate it.”

“We’re celebrating right now the impact of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. We’re celebrating a booming economy. We’re celebrating right now that we have more job openings in America than people on unemployment. We just passed the one million mark of jobs that have been created since the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act was passed. Let’s keep that going.”

“Tax reform was about American manufacturers. It was about bringing back jobs to America. This is all about keeping America first.”
