Republicans have better solutions than Democrats to “get Washington out of your way, out of your pocket, and back on your side,” U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., said in the Republicans weekly radio address.
“Just look at jobs. President Obama and Democrats in Washington are still trying to convince Americans that their trillion-dollar ‘stimulus’ is working,” Gingrey said. “But our economy has lost more than three million private sector jobs since February 2009. During that same time period, the federal government has actually grown by more than 400,000 jobs.
“More government, fewer jobs – that’s not recovery, those aren’t results, they’re just more of the same broken promises,” Gingrey added. “Republicans are offering specific proposals to cut spending now. We can provide the fiscal discipline economists say is needed to create private-sector jobs and boost our economy.”
Noting that “Americans are calling for a return to common sense in how we solve problems,” Gingrey highlighted America Speaking Out, a website where Americans can submit new agenda ideas.
“Americans are fed up with how things are going in the country right now,” Gingrey said. “They see more job losses, rising debt, and plummeting home sales. They feel let down by a government that passes one 2,000-page, trillion-dollar law after another instead of focusing on addressing the problems Americans worry about every day.”
