Today, Conference Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) joined her colleagues in House leadership to discuss the continued focus on the need for solutions that will put people back to work and spur economic growth this holiday season.
Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins:
"All across America, working moms and dads are looking for deals so they can get something for their children that is special for the holidays. Many parents are trying to pick up second and even third jobs this holiday season, and they shouldn't have to.
"If you look at who is working and who isn't, this is the worst economy since the late 1970s. American families are struggling. They're struggling because of the uncertainty in Washington, the uncertainty over a broken health care law, a broken tax code, stagnant job growth, and more broken promises from this administration.
"Washington must start working together to bring some economic security back to American families, to increase take-home pay for the hardworking families trying to make ends meet this holiday season."
