"People need to feel that if they work a full-time job, they’re actually able to feed their family and not tread water. And that’s what’s happening across this country. Too many people are working two or three jobs to make ends meet because their salaries aren’t enough and the cost of living is going through the roof," Perez said.

Perez also said the Trump administration has "delivered results for very wealthy people," pointing to what he described as the GOP's "reckless" tax cuts.

“They have delivered results for very wealthy people and large corporations in the form of the most reckless tax cut in American history. It’s a tax cut that’s mortgaging the future for our children and our grandchildren," he said.

Earlier Sunday on "State of the Union," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel argued that the GOP is responsible for a "booming" economy and should retain its majorities in Congress as a result.
