Congressman Visits Local Committee Meeting

Miller County, AR: A group of supporters and friends turned out this evening despite the rain to hear Congressman Bruce Westerman and others speak at the Miller County Republican Committee Meeting.  Wayne Smith, the committee chairman, welcomed the group and made announcements before recognizing public figures present.  

Among the guest was former State Representative Prissy Hickerson, State Representative Carol Dalby, and State Senator Jimmy Hickey.  Several county officials were present including JP Earnest Pender, County Assessor Elect Nancy Herron, and County Judge-Elect Cathy Hardin-Harrison.   Several officials spoke before the congressman’s arrival and answered questions with the people present. Congressman Westerman brought the group up-to-date on a growing economy and attributed that growth directly to tax cuts supported and passed by himself and fellow Republicans in Congress.  He noted that there has been an increase in job growth with a tremendous decrease in the unemployment rate.  He also noted that the women’s unemployment rate is at the lowest it has been in years. According to the Congressman, he has been amazed by some of the statements regarding the economic growth made by opponents.  He said that those same people have stated that Republicans did not make the tax breaks permanent; however, those making the statements failed to point out that they blocked a Republican-supported bill that would have made the cuts permanent.  Now Democrats are openly stating that if they can take back the majority in Congress, they will repeal the tax cuts and in fact place new taxes on the American people. Westerman noted that the trade deficit is down to 43 billion which is a 2 billion dollar drop from where it had been.  Westerman attributed this positive for American industry to the tariffs put in place.  He said that we are currently seeing a 4.2% growth in the economy.
