Today in an interview with ABC, Leader Pelosi falsely claimed Republicans haven’t passed a single jobs bill. Under the direction of former Speaker Pelosi, Democrats pushed a job-crushing agenda starting with the $800 billion failed stimulus package, followed by a massive job-killing tax hike in the form of cap and trade, which was followed by the job-destroying healthcare overhaul, all while leaving our nation with record debt and deficits as unemployment skyrocketed.
Contrary to Leader Pelosi, Republicans have been focused squarely on jobs since day one. In fact, House Republicans have passed many measures related to job creation. Further, just last week, House Republicans released their pro-growth jobs plan, which will spur job creation by encouraging small businesses and entrepreneurs in the private sector to grow and create jobs.
Below is a list of measures House Republicans have passed related to job creation:
