RE: Dem Presser

Posted by Brian Patrick on


Last year, House Republicans released a comprehensive pro-growth jobs plan to foster an environment for economic growth and job creation. In August, House Republicans took the plan a step further by repealing or delaying the 10 most harmful regulations preventing businesses from growing and hiring new workers. In September, House Republicans outlined areas of agreement with President Obama’s jobs plan, focusing on areas of common ground where we can take incremental steps toward putting Americans back to work.

To date, the House has passed 27 bipartisan jobs bills that await action from Senate Democrats.

Below is a list of bipartisan House-passed bills stuck in Leader Reid’s Senate:

Reminder: It’s been 132 days since the State Department said Keystone XL was the "preferred" option, and still the American people are waiting for a decision from the White House. Leader Pelosi & Whip Hoyer should join Republicans and call on President Obama to approve the project that would create thousands of middle class right away.
