Job creation is priority number 1.
My top three priorities in Congress are jobs, jobs, and jobs. The Great Recession, housing crisis, and financial collapse that began in 2007 continue to weaken America’s recovery. We must support policies that create jobs and pathways to the middle class.
To help create good American jobs, I have introduced two Make It In America bills that require transportation and clean energy investments paid for with taxpayer dollars to be at least 85 percent made in America. I have also introduced jobs bills to help farmers and veterans, and I have prioritized affordable education and assistance for seniors and working families. We must responsibly reduce the deficit, and the best way to put our country on a more fiscally responsible footing is to grow the economy.
For more information concerning my work on the economy, please contact my Washington, DC office. I also encourage small business owners to see the resources available on my page for businesses. I look forward to your feedback.
