Joint Statement by Illinois House GOP on
President Obama’s 19th Pivot Back to Jobs
WASHINGTON – The following statement was issued today by Illinois House Republicans, including
- Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06)
- Congressman Rodney Davis (IL-13)
- Congressman Randy Hultgren (IL-14)
- Congressman John Shimkus (IL-15)
- Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16)
- Congressman Aaron Schock (IL-18
following President Obama’s speech on jobs and the economy at Knox College, Illinois:
“Today, President Obama made his 19th pivot back to what has always been most important to Americans, jobs and the economy.
“However, no amount of presidential pivots and speech making will change the fact that too many Illinoisans are out of work. It doesn’t have to be this way.
“House Republicans have never strayed from our focus on creating jobs and strengthening our economy.
“We are developing a tax reform package for individuals and businesses that would increase American competitiveness in the global economy.
“We have passed a jobs and skills training package, approved the Keystone XL Pipeline, acted to protect families and individuals from a costly healthcare law and put forth a plan to permanently fix our student loan crisis.
“These proposals would immediately and demonstrably boost the economy, and set the foundation for long-term growth.
“We agree with the president, too many Americans are struggling in today’s economy, and we stand ready to work toward real, bipartisan solutions, not listen to another stump speech.”
