"Republicans are focused on jobs and the economy like a laser. We have several priorities: One, is to reduce unemployment. Two, is to work to increase the competitiveness of America and our businesses. And three, is to create an environment that fosters long-term economic growth. Today in conference we talked about our plan to cut spending because that has been a big inhibitor to investment and job growth.
"Tomorrow on the floor we’ll be talking about ways to reduce the uncertainty surrounding the regulatory environment in this country so our companies and businesses can be more competitive. We’re going to go to the White House today to speak to the President, and these are the kind of issues that we’re going to talk with him about, so that hopefully we can find some common ground so we can see jobs start growing again in this country."
