Over the last two years our country has faced some of the most challenging economic times in generations. And that is why Dan Boren has made the economy and job creation his number one focus in Congress.
Representing Eastern Oklahoma in the House of Representatives, he has advocated for and supported such proposals as:
* An expansion of the Child Tax Credit to allow Oklahoma families to keep more of their hard earned money.
* An increase in the Homebuyer Tax Credit to get our real estate and housing market moving again.
* An extension of unemployment benefits to help those struggling to find a job.
* A broad assortment of tax credits and incentives for small-businesses so that they can grow their business or make much needed capital investments.
Since the collapse of the housing market in the fall of 2008 and the staggering rise in unemployment in 2009, Dan Boren has argued that Congress should move away from divisive debates on health care and climate change, and instead remain singularly focused on improving the economy and creating jobs.
As your Congressman, Boren has also been honored annually by such organizations as the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce, and the National Association of Manufacturers as a loyal advocate for working families and small business owners.
