Congressman Pat Tiberi released the following statement after President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress:

“As Republicans, we have long believed that people, not the federal bureaucracy, should be put first. I am encouraged by President Donald Trump’s commitment to putting patients at the center of our health care system, to reforming the tax code so that families can save more of their hard-earned dollars, and to reining in federal regulations to return power to our local communities. These solutions reflect the ideas that we ran on to provide relief from Obamacare’s broken promises and unleash economic growth nationwide. 

“Our agenda is bold because Americans demanded change and a better way. The House has already made progress by passing over a dozen jobs bills to stop harmful regulations, and the wheels are in motion to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a  plan that gives people more affordable choices and increased access to the care they need. As the health subcommittee chairman, I hope Democrats join us in this effort because as the President said, Obamacare is collapsing. We must move forward with reforms that protect our constituents from a failing system.

“President Trump’s speech tonight was inspirational and it struck the right tone. America’s future is bright, and we want to empower people who make it so. That is an optimistic vision everyone can come together on."
