Congressman Boehner: Our Focus Is on Creating Jobs for the American People

May 31, 2012

At a weekly press conference with Republican leaders, Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) highlighted upcoming House action on legislation to help reduce economic uncertainty and create a better environment for private-sector job growth. Following are Congressman Boehner’s remarks:

“You know, the number one concern amongst the American people continues to be about the economy, and the lack of jobs that comes along with the slowly recovering economy.

“That’s why Republicans continue to focus our efforts here in the House on those things that will help our economy. Yesterday we did the FDA reform bill that would help [expedite drug and medical device] approval through the bureaucracy at the FDA.

“And you’ll see us move next week to repeal the medical device tax contained in ObamaCare that will drive up the cost of health care in America, and drive many of these companies overseas.

“You’ll also see us next month extend all of the current tax rates, bringing some certainty to the tax code. And you’ll see us continue to focus our efforts on jobs including a moratorium on new regulations coming out of this administration.

“Listen, while President Obama and Senate Democrats continue to stay focused on the election, our focus is on getting our economy going and creating jobs in our country for the American people.”
