GOP Address: Waiting For Obama To Act On Jobs Bills

This week’s Republican Address featured the authors of 14 House-passed jobs bills who are calling on President Obama and the Democrats in the Senate to act now and show that they are focused on improving the economy.

These 14 individuals were featured as Tuesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI): “Nothing is more important than preserving the American Dream for our kids and grandkids.  That’s why Republicans are relentlessly focused on building a strong economy that produces good jobs and lasting opportunities.  The trouble is, that task gets harder and harder each time the powers-that-be in Washington won’t act on a good idea.  Here’s what I mean.

“I’m Dave Camp from Michigan.  14 months ago, the House passed H.R. 890, my bill to protect reforms that have helped thousands of welfare recipients find jobs and lift their families out of poverty.   Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE): “Hello, I’m Lee Terry from Nebraska.  12 months ago, the House passed H.R 3, my bill to build the Keystone XL pipeline and support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs.  Americans are still waiting for the president and the Senate Democrats to act.  It’s time to build the Keystone pipeline.”

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL): “I’m Martha Roby from Alabama.  12 months ago, the House passed my bill, H.R. 1406, to allow private sector workers to take advantage of the comp time benefits public employees enjoy.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV): “Hi, I’m Mark Amodei from Nevada.  Eight months ago, the House passed H.R. 761, my bill to facilitate the development of strategic and critical minerals used to support American manufacturing jobs.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and the Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX): “Hi, I’m Bill Flores from Texas.  Seven months ago, the House passed H.R. 2481, my bill to provide our servicemembers with tools that will help them find good jobs when they return home.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and the Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO): “I’m Doug Lamborn from Colorado.  Six months ago, the House passed H.R. 1965, my bill to make it easier to develop our resources so we can lower energy costs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA): “I’m Bob Goodlatte from Virginia.  Five months ago, the House passed H.R. 3309, my bill to promote innovation and job creation by helping businesses defend themselves against abusive patent litigation.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Todd Young (R-IN): “I’m Todd Young from Indiana.  Five weeks ago, the House passed H.R. 2575, my bill to restore the working hours and wages that millions of part-time employees lost because of Obamacare.  Americans are still waiting for President Obama and Senate Democrats to act.”

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): “I’m Kevin Brady from Texas.  Yesterday, the House passed H.R. 4438, my bill to permanently extend the research & development tax credit so we can keep good ideas and good jobs right here at home.”
