WASHINGTON—Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) will deliver the Weekly Republican Address on Saturday, October 15. In the address, Rep. Cramer will discuss how the House Republican agenda—a #BetterWay—will help get government out of the way so businesses can create more American jobs and strengthen the economy.
“As I travel around North Dakota, my constituents tell me their greatest frustration is the overreach of the federal government,” said Rep. Cramer. “People feel the federal government is working against them, no matter how hard they work or how much they plan. That’s why the Better Way is a solution-based agenda that can help get big government out of the way and put our nation on a better path.”
“America’s energy boom has the potential to support an additional 2.3 million jobs over the next two decades—and our agenda will ensure government doesn’t get in the way,” said Speaker Ryan. “Kevin has seen firsthand what smart regulation does for economic growth. Now, it’s time to take these lessons learned and apply them on a national scale—that’s a Better Way.”
Rep. Kevin Cramer was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6, 2012. He serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, which has the broadest jurisdiction of any committee in Congress. He is North Dakota’s only member of the House of Representatives. A strong advocate for the free market system, Rep. Cramer has a proven record of cutting and balancing budgets, and encouraging the private sector through limited, common-sense regulations and limited government.
NOTE: The Weekly Republican Address will be available starting Saturday, October 15, at 6:00 a.m. ET on speaker.gov.
