It’s been six months, Speaker Ryan. Time for the training wheels to come off! Here’s a brief list of the promises you’ve made to the American people since taking the gavel.
So this is who’s here on a Friday morning. I guess you’re all worn out from taking your children to work yesterday. Wasn’t that glorious? Isn’t it beautiful to see the future right there before our eyes? It’s my favorite day. I wish every day could be Take Your Children to Work day. It was so great. It was a good day, too, because we had a very strong Democratic vote in support of the fiduciary rule, of Rule 2, protect and strengthen retirement security, and for the confidence of millions of Americans as they invest for their future, for their pensions, for their retirement.
