WASHINGTON—This week, Republicans will add planks on economic growth and self-government to A Better Way, a bold agenda to tackle some of our country’s biggest challenges.
On Tuesday, members of the Task Force on Reducing Regulatory Burdens will release a plan aimed at making it easier to work, invest, produce, and build things in America. In the afternoon, Republicans will lead a press conference to mark the unveiling near the West Front of the Capitol. On Thursday, Republicans will mark the unveiling of a plan aimed at restoring self-government and the separation of powers in National Statuary Hall, which served as the Hall of the House from 1807-1857.
“All of us—not government—should have the biggest role to play in our lives,” Speaker Ryan said. “That’s what these next two planks in our agenda are about. Regulations should serve to help, not hinder the workers and risk-takers at the heart of our economy. And after decades of executive overreach, it is time we restore self-government and the separation of power. This is a better way to uphold our Constitution and preserve the pursuit of happiness.” These are the third and fourth planks of A Better Way. Last week, Republicans unveiled initiatives aimed at lifting people out of poverty and keeping the American people safe. Two additional planks—health care and tax reform—are yet to be announced.
