Last Friday afternoon Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) served as a guest speaker before the South Windsor Chamber of Commerce.
During the lunch meeting, Congressman Larson discussed his ongoing efforts to pass job creation legislation in the House of Representatives. In addition to introducing President Obama's "American Jobs Act" last month, Congressman Larson has been a staunch advocate for incorporating job creation into the work of the Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (Commonly referred to as the, "Super Committee").
"It is very simple: job creation equals deficit reduction," Congressman Larson mentioned during his speech. "By returning the nation to what is considered full employment, we can help reduce our deficit by almost a third. I've spoken to both Democratic and Republican members of the committee and there is support among some members to incorporate job creation into the discussion."
This is the second time in as many months that Congressman Larson has spoken in front of the South Windsor Chamber of Commerce. Last month on September 27th Congressman Larson delivered brief remarks at an event honoring it's Business Person of the Year.
