Getting More Americans Back to Work

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 2, the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act and H.R. 4, the Jobs for America Act, which will create jobs, lower energy costs, and grow the economy.

“In homes all across America, working moms and dads are struggling to support their kids and pay the bills at the end of the month. Young college graduates are moving back in with their parents because they can’t find jobs. And too many Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck because of higher costs at the grocery store and gas pumps. The American people need real, bottom-up economic solutions that will bring them more certainty and financial security at home. Our bipartisan Jobs for America Act advances 15 jobs bills that will help get people back to work, increase their take-home pay, provide immediate tax relief, and expand opportunities for all Americans. And our all-of-the-above energy package lowers energy costs and creates thousands of jobs for Americans from coast to coast. I hope the Senate will join us in advancing solutions that grow the economy organically and empower everyone in this country to achieve a better life.”
