WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) joined Politico Playbook Live with Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman this morning to discuss how pro-growth Republican reforms, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, have visibly grown the economy, his continued work toward American energy independence and how his life has changed since the near-fatal shooting at the Congressional baseball practice one year ago this week.

Whip Scalise discuss how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is working for all Americans. Across the board, unemployment is at a historic low.

Republicans have passed 16 different bills to reverse job-killing regulations and grow the economy and will continue to work to implement further pro-growth reforms.

While Nancy Pelosi wants to raise taxes if she becomes Speaker, Republicans promise to keep taxes low and would work to make the tax cuts permanent.

Whip Scalise will continue to push for American energy independence to create jobs, boost national security, and lower prices at the pump.

After last year’s shooting, Whip Scalise has found an even greater appreciation for life’s gifts, including his family and his ability to serve the people of Southeast Louisiana.
