Mr. DOYLE. Mr. Speaker, America was founded on the principle that everyone should get a shot at the American Dream. But with so much unemployment, so many mortgages underwater, so many people struggling just to get by, it's not surprising that half of all Americans think the American Dream is dead.
This Congress should be making job creation our top priority. But what has the majority in the House done to create jobs? Nothing.
What's even worse, every job proposal that President Obama has sent to this House has been met with a resounding ``no.'' And what's their alternative? To do nothing.
Democrats have been working to pass legislation to grow this economy and create new jobs. After 42 weeks of doing nothing, it's time for the Republican majority to join us in giving the American people the jobs they need and deserve.
