Ross’ Response to President Trump's Joint Congress Address
WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 28, 2017 – U.S. Rep. Dennis A. Ross (FL-15), Senior Deputy Majority Whip, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s first address before a Joint Session of Congress:
“One by one, President Trump has been checking off the promises he made to the American people. He is doing exactly what he said he was going to do, and tonight’s address solidified his commitment to the prosperity of our nation. He laid out an optimistic vision for our country that crosses party lines in the service of a stronger and brighter America.
“We all share a desire for safe communities for our families. We want our children to have access to good schools. And all Americans deserve good jobs that allow them to succeed and dream. For far too long, these fundamental desires have been out of reach for so many people. The time is here to provide relief for hardworking Americans that allows them to feel safer, keep more money in their pockets, and make personal decisions that are best for them and their families. Together with President Trump, Congress will pass and implement a bold agenda that will repeal and replace the failed laws of Obamacare, reform our tax code, increase our national security, rebuild our military, protect our veterans, and provide school choice.
“I am excited to work with a president who has our nation’s security and best interests in mind so we can fix our problems and build on this renewed American spirit. I encourage my colleagues on both sides of the isle to unite in action that is firmly grounded in achieving these goals and upholding our commitment to those who sent us to Washington to represent and protect them.”
