"Job creators and local leaders across Missouri need more economic certainty to invest, hire, and grow the economy. I'll continue fighting to pass pro-growth policies to encourage private sector job creation and economic development in our state and nationwide," said Blunt.
According to a recent Gallup survey, jobs and the economy remain the two most important issues to the American people. Gallup also noted that ObamaCare has forced four in 10 small business owners to hold back on hiring and one in five to let employees go, while only 22 percent of Americans believe ObamaCare will make their family's health care situation better.
