“Meanwhile, Democrats here in Washington continue to play their usual politics, using their old playbook of pitting one group of Americans against another. And frankly, it’s pretty obvious that their efforts have failed. They’ve fallen flat because the American people are still asking the question, ‘Where are the jobs?,’ and these political votes provide no answers."
"Taxpayer dollars should be spent wisely or not at all, and the budget reforms the House has passed would make Washington live by this principle."
At a time when three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, the last thing our economy and our small businesses can afford is another barrier to job growth
President Obama is heading to Michigan to talk wages today, but it’s his own health care law that is slashing the take-home pay of those who can least afford it by forcing employers to cut jobs and hours or risk triggering the law’s 30-hour penalty.
Republicans are working to repeal this 30-hour requirement under ObamaCare, and allow Americans who want to work to actually get to work.
The president’s health care law continues to wreak havoc on American families, small businesses and our economy, and as I’ve said many times, the problem was never just about the website – it’s the whole law.
So let’s hope the bipartisan cooperation on Ukraine leads to Senate action on other House-passed bills that will help Americans here at home.
This bill sends a message to the Obama administration that the American people won’t tolerate this war on coal, much less fund it.
Expediting the approval of U.S. natural gas exports would send a clear signal that Russia’s energy stranglehold on Europe will not continue.
The House is continuing to take action on the Republican Plan for Economic Growth & Jobs this week with a vote on the Preventing Government Waste and Protecting Coal Mining Jobs in America Act (H.R. 2824)
