NO RAISE IN DEBT CEILING WITH NO JOBS! WE ARE SERIOUS! LISTEN TO AMERICA!!!

Speaker Alert: "Where Are the Jobs?" Americans Need Jobs, Not Job-Crushing Tax Hikes

July 10, 2011 | Posted by Speaker Boehner's Press Office | Permalink
"Where are the jobs?" asks Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) in the Weekly Republican Address. Small business job creators are being held back by the 'stimulus' spending binge, excessive government regulations, and the threat of tax hikes. But America needs more jobs - not tax hikes - and Republicans are listening. Watch Rep. McMorris Rodgers hereclick here for highlights, and learn more below about Republican jobs bills that have passed the House but are being held up in the Democratic-run Senate
:
Republicans Reject White House Demand That Tax Hikes Be Tied to Debt Limit Increase:
  • Speaker Boehner rejected President Obama’s demand for job-crushing tax hikes yesterday, and said “spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase” are needed.
  • VIDEO: The House will vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment later this month – the kind of reform Republicans believe is needed to stop Washington from spending money it doesn’t have.
House-Passed Jobs Bills Held Up By Democratic-Led Senate & A White House Bent on Raising Taxes
  • “To help our economy get back on track," Speaker Boehner said, "the House has passed several bills that would remove government barriers to private-sector job growth" and will be voting on more in the weeks ahead. "We hope the Senate will take those bills up." (see video here)
  • House Committees highlighted several GOP jobs bills being held up by the Senate, including bills reining in excessive regulations, paying down our national debt, and more.
  • Economists say high gas prices pose a threat to jobs and our economy, but Washington Democrats are quite comfortable with the pain at the pump: the Obama Administration has consistently blocked energy production that would help lower costs and create jobs.
Democrats' "Stimulus" Spending Binge, Excessive Regulations, & the Threat of Tax Hikes Holding Back Job Creators:
  • report by the House Budget Committee says the skyrocketing debt brought on by Democrats’ ‘stimulus’ spending “has emerged as one of the main factors weighing down the economy.” 
  • "June gloom": Analysis of the June jobs report by Speaker Boehner's economic policy advisor says unemployment is "stuck at record highs" but Democrats continue "to cling to a failed formula of spending too much, borrowing too much and taxing too much."
  • Republicans took advantage of a "Twitter Town Hall" this week to ask President Obama, "where are the jobs?" Unfortunately the president's answer revealed Democrats have no plan for jobs -- just a desire for more failed 'stimulus' spending, higher taxes, and more regulations.
