More on Economy & Jobs

November 14, 2012 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, The American people expect Congress to work together to create jobs and grow our economy. We heard that message loud and clear in last week’s election. We have an opportunity to save 75,000 American jobs RIGHT NOW by extending the Wind Production Tax Credit.

In Minnesota, this tax credit helped create an entire industry that employs thousands of people from construction workers to high-tech analysts. All of these jobs are now under threat.

July 9, 2012 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, this “do nothing” Republican-Tea Party Congress is killing jobs with its endless political games.  This week’s gimmick vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act is a meaningless vote to deny millions of American’s healthcare.  Meanwhile, this House’s failure to pass an extension of the Wind Energy Tax Credit to producers of all-American energy is killing jobs.  Roughly 37,000 American jobs in the wind energy sector are at risk.
