Days after the House passed landmark legislation to help individuals with disabilities, three of its champions in the House teamed up to deliver the Weekly Republican Address.
The ABLE Act, which passed the House on Wednesday with 404 votes, amends the Internal Revenue Service code to create tax-free savings accounts for individuals with disabilities. Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL) first introduced this bipartisan legislation in 2006, and will appear in the weekly address along with House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX).
House Republican leadership kept the focus on jobs in their weekly press conference today, discussing the upcoming House vote on a manufacturing jobs bill and keeping the heat on President Obama and Senate Democrats to approve the Keystone pipeline.
This week, Representative Brad Wenstrup delivers the Weekly Republican Address. Dr. Wenstrup represents Ohio’s Second District, and his address focuses on Republicans’ commitment to honoring the American people’s trust by focusing first on jobs and the economy.
"You deserve a government that doesn’t just “hear you,” but actually listens to you and puts your priorities first – that focuses on securing more jobs and a better future for our children, " Wenstrup says.
"This is what you can expect from the new Republican majority."
