Obama's American Jobs Act is the right answer for an ailing economy
While President Obama unveiled the American Jobs Act more than a month ago, the GOP-controlled House seems content to play politics instead of putting Americans back to work. The jobs act will give our economy a much-needed shot in the arm and put thousands back to work modernizing our schools, bridges and roads.
These investments will ensure America’s schools and infrastructure are competitive in a 21st century economy. The jobs act will make it easier for small businesses to hire new workers by cutting payroll taxes — and a typical American family can expect a tax cut of $1,500.
The jobs act will put Americans back to work, and President Obama has even shown how to pay for it. Call your congressman and senators and urge them to pass the American Jobs Act without delay.
