“It’s pro-worker, it’s pro-growth, and it’s been proven to work”

Highlights:

System Proven To Work: “People out there in the real world get this. It’s pro-worker, it’s pro-growth, and it’s been proven to work in Canada and Australia.”

Broken System Penalizes Americans: “Today, the system is so broken that only one out of every 15 who come into America come in with a skill. This is a broken system and it penalizes people who have been here and who just got here.”

Pro-Growth Effort: “I can’t understand why anybody who wants a pro-growth effort in America would oppose this.”

Top Priority: “This is what the President talked about in his campaign. It’s one of the reasons, quite frankly, I think he got elected, and I give him high marks for making this a priority in his new administration.”
