Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, it's time for this House to act on the American Jobs Act. It not only makes good sense, it makes dollars and cents for businesses. Businesses that hire persons who have been looking for work for more than 6 months will get a $4,000 tax credit. If that person happens to be a veteran, it becomes $5,600. If that veteran happens to have a disability that is service connected, it becomes $9,600.
