WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued this statement following President Donald Trump’s speech to Congress tonight:

“I was very encouraged by President Trump’s speech tonight.  It was very aspirational and optimistic.  It’s great to see Americans dreaming big again.  This President has laid out big dreams and he has proven in his first month we can accomplish big things.  In terms of his first month‘s accomplishments – great job.  In terms of goals going forward, he‘s holding us in Congress accountable. But he’s also letting us know he has our back if we stick together and do the heavy lifting repealing and replacing Obamacare with healthcare that is more patient-centered with greater access and lower costs.  Also important is the rollback of regulations so job creators can get about the business of creating jobs and making us more competitive in the global marketplace.  President Trump ran on putting America first, the importance of national defense as the highest priority of the federal government, and the responsibility of the federal government to work with states and local jurisdictions to keep neighborhoods and our homeland safe.  These themes are now fulfilled promises.  I look forward to working with him on this.“
