Working to Create New Jobs, Holding the Financial Industry Accountable
Steve Israel is working to get our economy moving again by cutting taxes for middle-class families and small businesses. He successfully worked to pass legislation to create new tax incentives for businesses to hire unemployed workers.
Steve understands that while we're trying to work our way out of this economic crisis, we have to hold the financial industry accountable to prevent the next one. That's why Steve wrote a bill that would have taken back the bonuses paid to top executives at Wall Street firms -- like AIG - that received federal bailout funds.
