On Fox News, Boehner Asks “Where Are the Jobs?”



gopleader.gov House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) appeared on FOX News Americas Newsroom this morning to talk about the need for swift, bipartisan action to combat high unemployment and help small businesses create jobs. With American workers and their families asking where are the jobs?, Boehner pointed to increasing evidence that the trillion-dollar stimulus isnt working and noted that Republicans proposed an alternative economic package that, according to a formula used by one of President Obamas senior economic advisers, would have created twice the jobs at half the cost. Boehner added that House Republicans reiterated some of their ideas last week in letters to President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA.) A former small business owner, Boehner also talked about how Democrats pursuit of a costly, job-killing agenda is discouraging entrepreneurs from making investments that would spur job creation.
