House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to discuss Jobs and the Democrat health care bill this morning. Here is an excerpt of Congressman Pence speaking about the economy:
"Good morning, guys. Well the back and forth yesterday was that House Republicans took to the floor and held the floor for about three and a half hours to ask the question, Joe, that I think the majority of Americans are asking today and that is “where are the jobs?” I mean, it’s been about six months since they passed the so-called ‘stimulus’ bill and this economy has lost more than two million jobs since they passed that legislation. They passed a budget-busting budget that’ll double the national debt in five years, triple it in ten. They just passed a national energy tax, and now they want to pass a government takeover of health care with nearly a trillion dollar tax increase. We’re just trying to get Congress to focus on the issue that most Americans are focusing on and that is getting this economy moving again."
