Rep. Joe Pitts (PA-16) released a detailed memorandum on jobs and employment. The 10-page document lays out the challenges facing American workers and companies, and offers concrete steps the government can take to promote private sector growth.
This continues Rep. Pitts' series of memoranda on the top issues confronting Congress and the United States. Earlier memo subjects include healthcare, energy, economic recovery, and Wall Street bailouts.
Rep. Pitts' statement follows:
"The top issue confronting our nation is creating jobs and fixing our economy. Real job creation comes from the private sector, but our government plays an important role in encouraging or discouraging this private sector prosperity.
"I believe it's my responsibility to clearly describe how I think we should tackle our toughest problems. This memo lays out steps that we can take in Washington to free businesses and individuals to reinvigorate our economy and get Americans working again."
