Statement from Rep. Webster on President Trump’s Joint Address
February 28, 2017
"As promised, President Trump’s address tonight was upbeat and presidential. In keeping with comments made during the campaign, he outlined his vision for reviving our economy – including investing in infrastructure and removing regulations that are crushing small businesses and stifling job creation. In just five weeks, working together Congress and President Trump have already cut $2.8 billion by rolling back over-burdensome regulations. The President’s commitment to improving infrastructure offers unique opportunity to build 21st century infrastructure for our district and America.
“The President is right, Obamacare is imploding. We must repeal and replace it with a 21st century healthcare system that provides Americans with the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a price they can afford.
“I was thrilled to see Floridian, Denisha Merriweather, as one of his special guests. Her story is a great example of the power of school choice. It has transformed the lives of countless students in Florida and can transform American education. I couldn’t agree more with President Trump’s comments on the power of education. His support for school choice is great news for every parent who is seeking the financial freedom to send their child to the school that meet their needs.”
