The House passed the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act in a bipartisan 306-91 vote:
Increased energy costs are especially bad news for low-income families who already spend over 12% of their household budget on energy.
Higher home heating costs are bad for families that have seen utility costs eat up significantly more of their budgets over the past decade.

Families shouldn't have to settle for the new normal of slow job growth that the Obama Admin seems to have embraced.
The House passed the All Economic Regulations Are Transparent Act in a 236-179 vote.
Employees should not have to worry that proposed regulations could mean smaller paychecks.

America doesn't work when Washington regulators impose more red tape on businesses large and small regardless of the cost.
