Speaker John Boehner said today that “House Republicans are going to continue to stay focused on jobs and the economy, which is what we’ve done the last 18 months.” Senate Democrats, on the other hand, are still blocking key jobs bills. And President Obama – as the numbers show – has “been out on the campaign trail” while his policies are making our economy worse. For example, there have been…
- More than 30 Jobs Bills Passed by the House Being Blocked by Senate Democrats: These House-passed bills remove government barriers to job growth by expanding energy production, eliminating excessive regulations, and more. Each of these bills is part of the Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators. See the full list here and learn more at jobs.GOP.gov.
- 30 Votes Taken by the House to Repeal, Defund, & Dismantle ObamaCare: Among the 30 votes to scrap the president’s health care law – which is driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire – was a recent bill repealing an ObamaCare tax that is shipping jobs overseas. Unless the Supreme Court overturns the full law, the House will vote to repeal whatever is left.
- The 30 Worst Months for Employment in the Last 25 Years: The 30 “worst months for employment in the past 25 years” have all happened under President Obama. Half of recent college graduates are out of work or underemployed. And the unemployment rate has been higher than 8 percent – far above what was promised if the ‘stimulus’ passed – for 40 months.
- More than 30 Speeches Given by President Obama So Far this Month: President Obama has delivered more than 30 speeches since the last dismal jobs report was released. More than half were “campaign events,” a reflection of a White House more focused on campaigning than jobs. At no point has the president called on Senate Democrats to act on House-passed jobs bills.
The numbers don’t lie: Republicans are focused on jobs. President Obama and Senate Democrats are not.
