Jobs are not created by government. Prosperity isn't either. Jobs and prosperity are created by risk-taking entrepreneurs, successful businesses, and hardworking Americans who take pride in what they do. Government can make this process easier or government can make this process harder.

Short of hiring more postal workers and park rangers, the government cannot simply "create" new jobs. I'm sorry to say the actions of the previous Congress and the White House have provided a strong disincentive to adding jobs.

We need a pro-growth agenda in Congress to free employers and entrepreneurs to create new jobs. Reducing taxes and government red tape will free employers to expand their business and their payroll.
