President Obama is in office for only one more month, and he’s already rolling out his last-ditch regulations. In fact, in just the last two days, he has unilaterally issued rules that will hurt coal country and take away areas of enormous energy potential for America.


“Earlier this week, House Republicans sent a letter to the Obama administration asking that they not advance any new regulations before leaving office."

America’s economy is the greatest in the world, but we are far from our potential—anemic growth, flat wages, and more than 94 million people out of the workforce. 

There is a better way, and it starts with getting government OUT of the way. 


Government has gotten out of control—too big and too arrogant. After decades of overreach by both parties, it is time we restore our Constitution.

Here is a better way.


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.

Here are two of the most devastating regulations, this time from the Department of Labor (DOL): the fiduciary rule and the overtime rule. These are two heavy-handed rules that actually hurt the very people they claim to protect.

Recently, Speaker Ryan held a Facebook Live Q&A with Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ), a 26-year veteran and the first American woman to fly a plane in combat.


“The Paris climate deal would be disastrous for the American economy. It carelessly throws away the great gains that the United States has made over the past decade in energy development."
Republicans have put forward a plan containing more than 100 ideas to ease the regulatory burden on American businesses. This is the third plan of A Better Way—a bold agenda to tackle some of our country’s biggest challenges.

WASHINGTON—Today on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol complex, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and other House Republican leaders unveiled a #BetterWay to grow our economy by tackling excessive regulations, developing American energy, and promoting financial independence for hardworking Americans. Below are Speaker Ryan’s opening remarks as prepared for delivery:
