Richard Burr, US Senator North Carolina The Senate has been working hard this week on confirming the President�s cabinet. This week we voted to confirm Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. President Trump also delivered his first joint address to Congress on Tuesday. [image = burr.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/joint_address.png] In his speech, the President outlined a blue print to improve our economy and keep our country safe. Americans were clear about their priorities in this past election, and I believe it�s time to work together on issues that are critical to the American people. For far too long, many have felt forgotten by our government. I am encouraged that Congress can work together with the President to pass legislation that will get our country back on track with a stronger economy for all Americans. It is clear that our citizens want to reel in government spending, create jobs, fix our healthcare system, and strengthen our borders. The President, in keeping his promises, has made significant gains in reinforcing these critical policy areas. I look forward to working with the President to solve the real, everyday problems that face the American people. Next week, the Senate will continue to confirm the nominees for the President�s cabinet. The President needs his team in place so that they can begin working on behalf of the American people.

The Senate has been working hard this week on confirming the President�s cabinet. This week we voted to confirm Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

President Trump also delivered his first joint address to Congress on Tuesday.

In his speech, the President outlined a blue print to improve our economy and keep our country safe. Americans were clear about their priorities in this past election, and I believe it�s time to work together on issues that are critical to the American people.

For far too long, many have felt forgotten by our government. I am encouraged that Congress can work together with the President to pass legislation that will get our country back on track with a stronger economy for all Americans.

The President, in keeping his promises, has made significant gains in reinforcing these critical policy areas.

I look forward to working with the President to solve the real, everyday problems that face the American people.
