Highlights:

Time To Legislate, Not Investigate: “No collusion, no obstruction…no kidding. That’s what the President has been saying for two years. Let’s be very clear - this is the false narrative that the left has been perpetrating for two years. The Democrats have shown they don't want to legislate. They’re only going to investigate. That’s not what the American people want right now. It's time to move on.”

Economic Agenda Is Working: “President Trump’s agenda is working, and the left wants to do anything they can to not talk about the results. We had eight years of the worst economic performance in U.S. history under President Obama. Now, Republicans have proven that what we believe in actually works. We've worked on regulations, energy, taxes, and even Dodd-Frank. Look what's happening to the economy.”

Hypocrisy: “Democrat Senators were demanding to debate the Green New Deal and then they wouldn’t even give it a positive vote. I call that hypocrisy. I never dreamed in my lifetime we'd be sitting here talking about the types of things that are included in the Green New Deal or in the ‘Modern Monetary Theory’ that they're now espousing to pay for it. This is just ridiculous.”

Saving Social Security & Medicare: “Discretionary spending, which will soon be only about 25 percent of what the federal government spends, is actually moderated right now. The real problem is in mandatory spending, and we're not even addressing how to save Social Security and Medicare. The Medicare trust fund goes to zero in eight years. We’ve got to get after that.”
