Putting Americans Back to Work

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. YODER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to again encourage my colleagues to support pro-growth economic policies that can help put Americans back to work.

With over 8 percent unemployment and slow economic growth, many Americans are struggling to pay their bills and provide for their families. Unfortunately, many of the policies coming out of Washington over the past few years have prolonged this economic stagnation and damaged our recovery.

With small businesses creating two out of every three jobs in this country, we need to support policies that keep business taxes down, eliminate costly regulations, and open up new avenues for access to capital. That's why I'm happy to support the JOBS Act. This bipartisan legislation will help new business formation, open up access to capital, and help new businesses create jobs.

Madam Speaker, let's work together in bipartisan fashion on the JOBS Act and other legislation, and let's help put Americans back to work
