Richard Burr, US Senator North Carolina id="content_main"> *Looking Ahead to 2018* This week, the American people and Congress heard from the President about the state of our union. A little over one year ago, the American people voted for a change. Following eight years of abdicated global leadership and the slowest economic recovery in history, the new administration has delivered that change in spades. Our stock markets are setting records on a daily basis, ISIS is on the run, and unemployment rates are at record lows. The new president and this Congress have worked together to put first those who were left behind in recent years and, in doing so, helped the millions of Americans who needed it most. To list a few of the accomplishments from the past year, we confirmed a well-qualified Supreme Court Justice and a record number of Circuit Court judges. We revoked hundreds of unnecessary regulations that wasted thousands of hours of paperwork better spent on further developing businesses. We repealed the burdensome Individual Mandate from Obamacare. And we passed the most sweeping tax reform in more than thirty years, putting more of your hard earned money back in your pockets. You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't seen the benefits from all that's been done in just the first year of this administration. In the coming year, we can continue this great work by renewing the critical Pandemics and All-Hazards Preparedness Act and beginning the process of improving our nation's infrastructure, which is sorely in need of an across-the-board upgrade from roads to ports to bridges. I look forward to continuing to work together with the president and my colleagues in Congress to accomplish even more for the American people in 2018.

Looking Ahead to 2018

 

This week, the American people and Congress heard from the President about the state of our union. A little over one year ago, the American people voted for a change. Following eight years of abdicated global leadership and the slowest economic recovery in history, the new administration has delivered that change in spades. Our stock markets are setting records on a daily basis, ISIS is on the run, and unemployment rates are at record lows. The new president and this Congress have worked together to put first those who were left behind in recent years and, in doing so, helped the millions of Americans who needed it most.

 

To list a few of the accomplishments from the past year, we confirmed a well-qualified Supreme Court Justice and a record number of Circuit Court judges. We revoked hundreds of unnecessary regulations that wasted thousands of hours of paperwork better spent on further developing businesses. We repealed the burdensome Individual Mandate from Obamacare. And we passed the most sweeping tax reform in more than thirty years, putting more of your hard earned money back in your pockets.

 

You would be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t seen the benefits from all that’s been done in just the first year of this administration. In the coming year, we can continue this great work by renewing the critical Pandemics and All-Hazards Preparedness Act and beginning the process of improving our nation’s infrastructure, which is sorely in need of an across-the-board upgrade from roads to ports to bridges. I look forward to continuing to work together with the president and my colleagues in Congress to accomplish even more for the American people in 2018.
