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.

June 7, 2012 Statements For the Record
