Missed the interview? Here are some highlights:

REPUBLICANS’ RECORD OF RESULTS

“It was our priority as a Republican majority to enact policies, to reduce taxes, to reduce the regulatory burden, to get to this booming economy. It didn’t just happen. You think about where we were two years ago. We were talking about it being a new normal and in two short years we’ve gone from people being pessimistic about the future to optimism being a 20 year high.”

“I think a lot of people focus on the president rather than focusing on our record of results. I am proud of our record of results in the House and the Senate. And in fact, 68 percent of the bills that the president has signed have been bipartisan. For those of you who have been saying that it is really chaotic in Washington, D.C. and on Capitol Hill, you look at the results, the House and the Senate–we’ve been doing our jobs. We’ve been working in a bipartisan fashion. This 68 percent is a 20-year high as far as the number of bills that have been passed bipartisan.”

TAX CUTS 2.0

“This has been a long time priority of ours to make the tax cuts permanent…It is the doubling of the standard deduction, making it permanent. The expansion of the child tax credit, the ABLE account expansion, all of these need to be made permanent. And many Democrats have said that they would vote to make these tax cuts permanent and so the House is going to lead on this effort. I think it is premature to say what will happen in the Senate.”
