For 198 days the GOP has been in charge of Congress and Americans have yet to see a Republican bill addressing their number one concern, jobs and the economy, come to the floor for a vote. Instead, Congressional Republicans have voted again and again on bills to end Medicare in order to protect tax cuts for Big Oil and millionaires. American middle class families and small businesses deserve better.
According to a new Gallup poll, Americans rank the economy in general and jobs/unemployment as the two most important problems facing the country with the federal budget deficit coming in a very distant third:
31 percent – economy in general
27 percent – unemployment/jobs
16 percent – federal budget deficit/debt
