CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: It is a historic day. It is a great Christmas present, and President Trump led the way. You know, I think about a year ago when he was coming to my state of Michigan and traveling this country and recognizing that wages were stagnant, that people were suffering. And now, today, he has said we are fighting for you. We are going to give the middle class a huge tax cut. We are going to make your paychecks bigger. We are going to increase jobs. We're going to grow our economy. We're going to fight for the American people. So, at the Republican party, we are going to keep hammering home the great accomplishments of this president and Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan. And then we are going to remind them that the Democrats were nowhere to be found. In fact, Joe Manchin went home and he saw a big banner that said "We'll remember in November." Well, we're going to make sure they remember in November that no Democrat supported middle class tax cuts in helping the American people.
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Republicans Have Accomplished So Much This Year
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Well, so much has been accomplished in this year as we look at the year in review. You look at the judicial appointments, you look at Neil Gorsuch, you look at our Veterans Accountability Act, you look at our increased military spending and deregulation and tax cuts. We’re just going to keep doing that. The president has signaled that he wants to tackle infrastructure next year. That's something that should bring bipartisan support. You know, there's a lot in the accomplishment column for Republicans. What have Democrats done this year? What have they accomplished? Nothing. Resist and obstruct and fighting this president at every turn even if it's in the best interest of their constituents is not a message that they're going to be able to run on in 2018. This tax bill has shown that we can come together as a party. We can govern as a party. We have a president who is leading the way, and we’re going to continue fighting for the American people. Our hand is out to Democrats. We want them to come across the aisle and work with us, but if they’re not going to, we’re going to get it done.
