Highlights

President Trump’s Agenda Is Working: “President Trump’s agenda is working. The economy is growing at twice the rate that it did under the Obama Administration. We’ve nominated and confirmed 68 federal judges, including 26 court of appeals judges. The thing that’s lacking is we can’t properly secure the border because of the Democrats’ historic level of obstruction.”

Historic Democrat Obstruction: “Right now, we have an historic level of Democrat obstructionism…The President is fed up with this, and frankly, so am I. It’s time to get the government on a process where we can fund our priorities and get this President’s agenda accomplished.”

Failed Funding Process: “First, it’s totally irresponsible to kick the can down the road past the end of the fiscal year. People in the real world don’t get to do that – only the United States Congress does that. This is the 184th time Congress has resorted to a continuing resolution since the 1974 Budget Act. Second, it doesn’t fund President Trump’s priorities. He was elected to grow the economy, rebalance the courts, and secure our border.”

Confirming Judge Kavanaugh: “Chairman Grassley has done a great job in this process. We have been provided with over 500,000 pages of discovery, and there have been six FBI investigations of Judge Kavanaugh. We want all information before the Judiciary Committee and the Senate. If the information is not provided, it’s time to move forward with the vote next week.”
