Americans are benefiting from the Republican economic policies, so says House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.), according to U.S. Fed News.

“Americans across the economic line can retire more comfortably through the effects of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts,” Hastert said. “These cuts have put more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans to use toward their retirement savings and investments. The measures lessened the tax burden on stocks, making these investment a new and attractive option for many more Americans.”
