Jobs and the Economy

f t # e
 

Millions of Americans are out of work and too many North Carolina families and small businesses are struggling to make ends meet. The Obama economic agenda – from Obamacare to “Stimulus” to restrictions on American energy and unprecedented debt – is a failure; today’s stagnant economic recovery is proof.

When American workers and small businesses look to Washington for help, they aren’t asking for more micromanagement, a federal health care takeover or a continuation of failed policies. They are asking for a leaner more responsive government that works for them. 

Reforming our laws, tax code and regulations to encourage job growth and strengthen America’s standing in the global economy are things both parties should agree on, and things House Republicans are happy to help the President pursue. Working families, small business job creators and unemployed North Carolinians are at the forefront of my mind as I work on these issues in Congress.

Foxx legislation pertaining to Jobs and the Economy (sponsored, co-sponsored, or supported by Rep. Foxx):

H.R. 803The SKILLS Act
H.R. 946: National Right to Work Act
H.R. 1406: The Working Families Flexibility Act
