This morning on “Face The Nation," Leader Pelosi continued her misinformation campaign. Contrary to the former Speaker’s claim, the GOP has been focused on jobs since day one and just last week unveiled the only pro-growth plan focused on creating jobs, reducing the deficit, and improving the economy.
If the former Speaker is serious about helping get Americans back to work she should stop trying to raise taxes on job creators and start focusing on cutting spending, preventing Medicare from going bankrupt and putting forth a pro-growth plan to create jobs. Demagoguery is not a plan.
Below is a list of measures House Republicans have passed related to job creation:
Empower Small Business Owners and Reduce Regulatory Burdens:
H.Res. 72, a Resolution to direct committees to inventory and review existing, pending, and proposed regulations and order from agencies of the Federal Government, particularly with respect to their effect on jobs and economic growth

H.R. 910, the Energy Tax Prevention Act
H.J.Res. 37, a Resolution of disapproval regarding the FCC’s regulation of the Internet and broadband industry practices
