House Republicans are offering a #BetterWay—a plan that will boost our economy in ways Americans can actually benefit from.

Yesterday, Speaker Ryan delivered an address to The Economic Club of New York to discuss #BetterWay—a bold agenda to tackle our country’s biggest challenges.

Today, Speaker Ryan opened his weekly press conference by discussing the Survivors’ Bill of Rights Act—legislation recently passed by the House to protect victims of sexual assault.
“Everyone in America deserves a real opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty—once and for all,” said Rep. Byrne. “To do that, we need to combine the present jumble of programs into just a few that can meet people’s needs. . . . It's time for a better way. A better way for poor children. A better way for struggling adults. And, a better way for America.”

Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) will deliver the weekly Republican address on Saturday, September 3.

The disastrous Fast and Furious operation armed dangerous drug lords in Mexico and directly resulted in the Agent Terry’s death.

Twenty years ago today, landmark welfare reform was signed into law. And you know what? It was a success. We moved people from welfare to work. In fact, employment for single mothers increased by 15%.

But you know what else? That was just one program. Washington has created dozens more that need a second look. That's exactly what House Republicans are doing with our plan for A Better Way, and it starts with a simple principle: Welfare should be tied to work. 

In the 52-second video below, Speaker Ryan explains why.


You can have a system in America where everyone has access to affordable healthcare, including people with pre-existing conditions, without a costly government takeover or double-digit premium increases.

As a country, if we simply react to the news of the day—if we just chase the loudest voices—then we're not going to serve the people of the country the way that they ought to be served. 

The reason I push so hard for ideas—the reason we're pushing so hard to offer this "Better Way" agenda—is because ideas are really what make this country great, and we have ideas for making this country great. We have ideas for getting this country back on the right track.
