WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD), Joint Economic Committee Vice Chair Don Beyer (VA-08), Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (KY-03), and Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (MA-01) will lead a special order hour on Tuesday, January 28, to discuss the economy. Ahead of President Trump’s State of the Union Address, during which he is expected to take credit for the good news in the economy, House Democrats have released a new Joint Economic Committee report to highlight how the current economic expansion began well before he took office, and how his policies are preventing its benefits from being broadly felt by all Americans. Hoyer, Committee Chairs, and other Members will discuss the report and how House Democrats are fighting to ensure more working Americans can get ahead in today’s economy.
