Harper Responds To President's Speech

Statement

U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) made the following statement in response to the president's address to a joint session of Congress:

"Our nation continues to suffer from a serious jobless problem, which is why I support a pro-business legislative agenda that removes barriers our job creators face from excessive federal regulations.

"While I agree with the president that we must get folks back to work, I do not believe that another failed stimulus is the answer.

"House Republicans have advanced a number of job-creating proposals -- many of which have passed with bipartisan support -- that remain stalled in the Democratic-controlled Senate. I urge the president to support these initiatives which promote private sector growth, decrease job-crushing regulations and boost American-made energy production."
