Jobs and the Economy

"Restoring economic growth in a fair and equitable way will be the tide that raises all boats. As your Representative, I will continue to support common sense pieces of legislation that ensure job growth for all Americans and keep our country competitive."

American Jobs Act

As a member of Congress, one of my goals is to promote sustainable job creation with a strong focus on uplifting middle class families. I am supportive of a pro-jobs and pro-Middle Class agenda, such as President Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act. This piece of legislation – which has yet to be passed by Congress – gives tax cuts to small businesses, funding for more cops, firefighters, schools, and provides billions for infrastructure improvements. The Act was re-introduced as H.R. 2821, the American Jobs Act of 2013, and I became a cosponsor of it in the 113th Congress.

Investing in our Infrastructure

Roads, bridges, and railways are economic connectors for the private sector and create thousands of high-paying jobs in a diverse range of industries. Smart, long-term investments in our infrastructure will pay off in dividends for generation after generation; therefore, we must increase domestic investment to rebuild our economy from the ground up – starting by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure.

I am also supportive of the Make It In America plan, which will strengthen manufacturing so that American companies can grow and create jobs here in the U.S. It focuses on supporting small businesses, increasing competitiveness, and prioritizing investments in key areas like education, infrastructure, and innovation.
