With Washington Democrats’ job-killing agenda more unpopular than ever, Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) outlined better solutions to tackle the immediate challenges facing the American people during the weekly GOP leadership press conference:
“It’s been a long year for the American people. We’ve seen American families and small businesses struggling all year in a very difficult economy and all that they’ve gotten from the Democrats here in Washington is more spending and more debt piled on the backs of our kids and grandkids. The American people are asking ‘where are the jobs?’ but when you begin to look at the policies being outlined by this Administration, it’s not just all the spending and the debt It’s this national energy tax which will kill jobs in America and ship them overseas. It’s their government takeover of health care.
“Republicans have offered better solutions all year long. Whether it was a budget that had a lot less spending and a lot less debt. Whether it was our ‘all of the above’ energy bill, which will give us cleaner air, cheaper energy and more energy. Our proposal on health care was a common sense way of bringing down costs and not increasing the cost of health care like the Democrats’ proposals. Our better solutions are going to continue to be brought out day after day because the American people are looking for common sense solutions to deal with the problems that they face. Republicans have been responsible in offering those policies all year and we will continue to do so in the new year.”
