“Good morning. This week is about leadership. Once again, the House Republicans are stepping forward with our budget. Chairman Ryan is here and his members are ready to discuss the budget. It is an actual solution being proposed to try and deal with the fiscal challenges this country faces. As the Speaker indicated, we’re still waiting for the other side of the aisle to put forward their solution. We’ve got to get this nation back on track, we’ve got to be about growing this economy and getting the fiscal house in order.
“We’re also very excited about passing the JOBS Act this week. We expect to do that today. This is a product of bipartisan work, so that we can actually go right to the heart of what can bring this economy back, which is making it easier for small businesses to grow, to retain and create jobs.”
