Rep. Mia Love and Speaker Ryan Host Facebook Live Town Hall

20160713 Mia Love Facebook Town HallCongresswoman Mia Love appeared with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan on a Facebook Live Town Hall Meeting, focusing on poverty. 

“The federal government cannot do it on its own,” Congresswoman Love said during the Town Hall.  “We have got to do everything we can to work with our local agencies because they know the people specifically.”

Speaker Ryan said:   “Imagine if the government freed up the local control, removed the handcuffs, and got the power and the money back to the communities so that they could customize solutions.”

The Town Hall coincides with the House Republican’s ‘Better Way’ platform, which offers bold, forward-looking ideas from around the country to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time:  Poverty, jobs and economic growth, constitutional authority, health care and national security.

“We can solve these problems. They’re huge,” Rep. Love said. “But I firmly believe that every single person, once in their lifetime, has to take on an impossible task and I think we’re up for it.”
