Representative Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) delivers this week’s address on the House’s efforts to jump start our nation’s sluggish economy. Republicans in the House have stopped a small business tax hike scheduled for January 1st, passed more than 30 jobs bills that eliminate excessive red tape, empower small businesses, and approve the Keystone XL pipeline. In addition, they have also passed a budget that fixes our dysfunctional tax code, pays down our debt, and strengthens Medicare. And while our nation’s suffers under a historic drought, the House has passed a measure that will help devastated farmers during this time. House Republicans have acted. Senate Democrats and the president must do the same.
