While the American economy is beginning to show signs of recovery, millions of Americans remain unemployed, homeowners remain at risk and credit markets remain tight. During these uncertain economic times I support policies that protect those at risk. That is why I support extending unemployment insurance, creating jobs through investments in infrastructure and promoting small business opportunities.

I also believe all Americans should have access to health care, job training programs, quality child care and affordable housing as they confront the challenges of the current economy. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I have fought to increase funding for social service programs that provide these essential services to American families in need.
