Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield/Porterville) was part of the GOP briefing today in Washington, addressing the Republicans gaining the White House, as well as controlling both houses of Congress.

Transcript via C-SPAN:

A LOT OF NEW FACES HERE. WHAT A DIFFERENCE ONE WEEK MAKES AND IN DOING SO, AS THE SPEAKER TALKED ABOUT, WE ARE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP AND VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT MIKE PENCE AND PART OF THAT IS HOW WE MOVE FORWARD, HOW WE ACCOMPLISH THE PROMISES MADE AND THE AMERICAN PUBLIC EXPECTS IT TO HAPPEN. YESTERDAY, ALL THE COMMITTEE CHAIRS AND MYSELF SENT A LETTER TO ALL THE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES REQUESTING THAT NO NEW REGULATIONS BE MOVED FORWARD. THIS IS NOT A NEW REQUEST. THIS REQUEST ACTUALLY HAPPENED WHEN BARACK OBAMA WON, RAHM EMANUEL SENT THE SAME LETTER. IT’S NOW TIME TO CHANGE THE TIDE TO GET THE ECONOMY MOVING, TO GET A HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT ACTUALLY WORKS AND GET AMERICA BACK ON THE RIGHT TRACK.
