House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) delivered the following speech on Washington Democrats' failed economic policies and Republicans' commitment to listening to the American people through America Speaking Out and offering better solutions on jobs, spending, health care and other important issues:
"Mr. Speaker, the American people are asking 'where are the jobs?' And just this morning we found out that housing starts fell in the month of June to their lowest level in eight months. Consumer confidence has fallen to its lowest level in the last 11 months. We need to get Americans back to work and we need to get American businesses back open again. But we're not going to get there if the President continues to take money and freedom away from American employers -- whether it's through the 'stimulus' bill, ObamaCare, the national energy tax, or this financial regulatory bill. With three million jobs lost and unemployment at 9.5 percent, and with trillion-dollar deficits, it's clear to everyone except the President that his big-government agenda is not working. We need to cut spending now in order to help create jobs in America. But we have no budget to clean up the mess. We have no plan to move free trade agreements that could create millions of American jobs, and we have no plan to stop the largest tax increase in history for American families and small businesses. Republicans are listening through America Speaking Out and offering better solutions that will limit the size of this government and empower small businesses across our country."
