McMorris Rodgers on Fox News: Our economy is booming right now

House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) joins America’s Newsroom on Fox News to discuss the state of our economy. This week marks six month since the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act became law, and thanks to Republican policies like regulatory relief and tax reform, our economy is booming.

Thanks to our pro-family, pro-growth policies, unemployment is down to a record low, more than one million jobs have been created, hundreds of companies are offering bonuses and increased benefits, 90 percent of Americans have bigger paychecks, and people across the country are feeling more confident than ever. Best part? These positive results are only scraping the surface. Even The New York Times ran out of words to describe how great the economy is doing.

Here’s what you may have missed from the Chair’s interview:

“I believe America also should be celebrating the impact of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act on our economy. Our economy is booming right now, and it’s brought back an optimism and a hope to everyone that is really exciting to see…we were asking ‘where are the jobs?’ Today, we’re asking ‘where are the workers?’ We have more job openings today in America than people on unemployment. This is a good problem to have, and I’m most excited it is bringing an optimism and restoring people’s hope again in the opportunity for a better life.”
