“With a record surplus, Republicans delivered a record tax cut and record investment in K-12 education. We continued investing in our children by increasing funds for school safety and child care. We recognized a growing crisis and put extra resources in health care and mental health. We paid down debt, decreased borrowing and avoided divisive policies.
