Press Release

Excerpt: "House Republicans are fighting against these failed economic policies and working to create jobs and boost the economy. Yesterday we saw the Leader Cantor's JOBS Act get signed into law to help new businesses and start ups grow, innovate, and create jobs. This is the type of initiative that will ensure Washington stops hurting and starts helping America's job creators."

Press Release

Excerpt: “Our nation is facing the most predictable debt crisis in history – we either manage our debt now or our debt manages us forever. Yet even on the verge of this crisis, the White House continues to push an unserious budget that would never balance and didn’t get a single vote in the House.  Senate Democrats refuse to offer their own plan, last passing a budget when Rod Blagojevich was indicted three years ago."

Press Release

Excerpt:“Now, the Supreme Court is obviously taking up the healthcare debate. And not withstanding the decision that the Supreme Court makes – in other words regardless of how they rule – in the court of public opinion the country has spoken”

Press Release

Excerpt: We’re for the repeal IPAB. We’re for the repeal of something that is going to put such downward pressure on seniors, it will make people’s heads spin. What we’ve got to do is make sure we put remedies in place that empower seniors, that create patient-centered healthcare and don’t deny care and put more out of pocket costs on the backs of seniors.”

Press Release 

Excerpt: "WASHINGTON – Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) yesterday welcomed the Washington fly-in of the Committee on Private Company-Policy of Financial Executives International (FEI), a membership association representing 15,000 CFOs and other senior financial executives. The group, comprised of financial executives of family-owned and privately-held businesses, met with Members of Congress and staff to discuss the need for comprehensive tax reform and how privately-held and family-owned businesses are affected by the current tax code. Like many small businesses, these businesses file under the individual income tax bracket – and thus are affected by changes in the tax code for individuals"

Press Release

Excerpt: “In the two years since Obamacare passed Americans have overwhelmingly rejected the overhaul that has delivered nothing but broken promises and made our healthcare system worse.  The Administration promised Obamacare would lower health costs for families, reduce the deficit, create thousands of jobs, and that patients would be able to keep their doctor and healthcare plan if they liked it – the opposite has happened in each case."

Mar 21, 2012 Press Release

Press Release:

Excerpt: "Washington has created one obstacle after another to job creation. So for the small business owner whose trying to get their head up above water it just keeps crashing down on top of them, just one cascade after another. This is a pathway forward that is basically a lifeline to these companies, that says we want to see you prosper, we want to see you expand, and it makes all the sense in the world."

Mar 20, 2012 Press Release

Press Release:

Excerpt: “Look, to Paul’s point this is the most predictable event in history. That is the debt crisis of the United States if we don’t act. And for the Democrats to be doing cartwheels in the parking lot is completely absurd. It has been since the governor of my home state Rod Blagojevich was indicted since they last passed a budget. So I think the country is road weary of the nonsense and the sniping. They want remedies and this is a remedy that moves forward.”

Mar 9, 2012 Press Release

Press Release:

Excerpt: “It's a positive development to see more Americans finding jobs, but economic growth is still nowhere near where it should be. Millions are still out of work and the Administration refuses to budge from the same failed policies of raising taxes on job creators, denying job-creating energy projects like Keystone XL while investing in failed taxpayer-funded boondoggles, and adding trillions more in debt that threatens future generations. It's been over three years since the “stimulus” became law and national unemployment is still higher than the Administration promised it would ever get."
