More Democrat Misinformation On Jobs

Posted by Brian Patrick on

All – 

Earlier today, Leader Pelosi’s Office continued their misinformation campaign on jobs. House Republicans have put forth a robust jobs plan that includes specific proposals to spur economic growth, including The America Invents Act which streamlines our nation’s patent system to allow entrepreneurs to more efficiently launch their products and create more jobs. With the Senate set to pass this common sense legislation, that Harry Reid called “a down payment on the aggressive jobs agenda,” it is time for Leader Pelosi’s Office to stop demagoguing and join Republican efforts in job creation.
 

  • Leader Pelosi’s Office Accused House Republicans Of, “246 days in the majority without passing any jobs bills ...”


Background:

  • Today: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: Praised The Republican House Crafted America Invents Act As A Job Creation Measure. Reid praised the bipartisan support for the patent bill and he called it “a down payment on the aggressive jobs agenda” planned for this fall. “It is time our patent system became a tool to spark innovation instead of something that holds companies back from creating jobs,” Reid said.
