Speaker Kevin McCarthy: House Democrats Dead Set on Erasing Economic Gains

Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy says that Democrats are running on a platform that would erase all the gains the economy has made under President Trump.

Over the last eighteen months, the economy has grown at a tremendous rate and the stock market has set no less than 106 records for gains. The wages of working Americans has been at 3% for 11 straight months and the unemployment rate is a fantastic 3.7%. Yet, the Democrats insist that the economy isn’t working for everyone.

They realize that unless they fool the voters, Trump will win in a walk because he controls two important issues for the voters and that’s the economy and immigration.

Their latest Washington-centric proposal is the Raise the Wage Act, legislationthat would artificially raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour—over twice its current amount.

This bill is another misguided attempt by Democrats to impose one-size-fits-all policy on the American people. It is backward-looking and proves that Democrats are dead set on erasing the progress our economy has made since President Donald Trump took office.
