09.23.22

We are Addressing the Issues That are on Americans’ Minds and Hearts

House Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) appeared on Fox Business today with Neil Cavuto and shared how Republicans’ Commitment to America will create an economy that’s strong, a nation that’s safe, a future that’s built on freedom, and a government that’s accountable.

The following are key excerpts from Leader Rodgers’s interview:

AN ECONOMY THAT IS STRONG

“[The Biden administration] should pay attention to rising inflation, rising energy costs that are making it harder for American families.

“We have one party rule right now in Washington, D.C. President Biden and the Democrats have majorities in the House and the Senate.

“What the Republicans are putting forward, and what Leader McCarthy and my colleagues and I are rallying around, is this Commitment to America. It is a commitment to create an economy that’s going to be strong, a nation that’s safe, a future that’s built on freedom, and a government that’s accountable.

“In this Commitment to America, we are addressing the issues that are on Americans’ minds and hearts and what American families are facing.”

“We continue to see rising inflation, and rising energy costs, and [we want to] hold Big Tech accountable, and stop this surge of fentanyl.”

A NATION’S THAT IS SAFE BY STOPPING FENTANYL

“Today, Neil, I’m sending letters to many of the big tech companies like TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram, and telling them that they need to do more to stop the fentanyl sales that are killing our children.

“I know families. I know parents. I’ve talked to many in my own district who have lost their kids to fentanyl. Just one pill that they buy on these platforms.”

FLIPPING THE SWITCH FOR MORE AMERICA PRODUCTION

“The number one barrier to doing anything in America right now that is crippling mining, manufacturing, processing, any energy projects, is the regulatory burden.

“We need to cut taxes, we need to lift the regulatory burden, we need to say ‘yes’ to American energy. We need to unleash American energy.”
