House Republicans are doing work – and encourage Senate Dems to do the same

In this week’s Republican address, the authors of more than a dozen House-passed jobs bills call on President Obama and Senate Democrats to act and match the House’s focus on the economy.

Each of these bills are aimed at creating jobs, strengthening the American economy, and easing the squeeze for hard-working Americans. These are only a few of the 232 bills stuck in the Senate, and as Rep. John Kline (R-MN) said, “More are in the works.”

For House Republicans, the focus remains on building a stronger economy and a better America. “It’s time for President Obama and Senate democrats to step up and make that their priority, too,” said Kline.

Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI): H.R. 890 passed to “Protect reforms that help thousands of welfare recipients find jobs and lift their families out of poverty.”

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC): H.R. 803, helps “More American workers gain the skills and education necessary to compete for in demand jobs.”
