Cathy McMorris Rodgers Remarks as Delivered:

“Over the past several weeks, we’ve been taking our Better Way Agenda to every corner of this country.

“And it’s all part of our ongoing commitment to listen and to take that feedback and to offer real solutions to address the frustrations that we hear from people. And it’s putting the American people back in charge of their representative government.

“Whether it was a town hall in Pomeroy or a festival that I attended in Pullman I heard the same things, that people are struggling to make ends meet. That the VA and other agencies are disconnected from their mission. That small business owners, they tell me over and over that they are drowning in the regulations and they’re worried that they are going to be regulated out of business. The federal government time and time again is making people’s lives harder and they need to know that Congress is focused on getting the job done, getting things done.

“Now, more than ever, Americans need their representatives in the United States House of Representatives, the People’s House, hearing the challenges they face and offering real solutions to address them.

“We are going to continue to do everything within our power until every farmer, every teacher, every stay at home parent feels confident in their lives and in their future.

“At the end of the day, our Better Way Agenda is our pledge, it’s my pledge to the people of eastern Washington and to America.

“We hear you, and we are offering A Better Way.”
