Dear Mr. Lund:
Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Labor announced the national unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent in the month of May. Two years ago, when Americans needed a jobs plan, the President instead offered a spending plan. The "stimulus" was accompanied by an assurance from advocates that it would keep unemployment below 8 percent. Unfortunately, we have had 28 consecutive months of joblessness greater than 8 percent and anemic economic growth.
The American people deserve a new direction.
That's why my colleagues and I have introduced the "Plan for America's Job Creators," which will put an end to overwhelming regulatory burdens, simplify the tax code, improve trade opportunities, and support burgeoning entrepreneurs. We are determined to stop Washington's wasteful spending and provide fresh opportunities for families and business owners. Click here to read more about our plan.
America is at a crossroads and I remain committed to taking every possible step to spur job creation and get our economy back on track so Americans can do what they do best: create, innovate and lead.
Member of Congress
