Press Release
Today, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) spoke on the floor of the U.S House of Representatives regarding accomplishments by House Republicans in the first 100 days of the 109th Congress: “In the past 100 days, House Republicans have delivered a long list of accomplishments that are spurring economic growth and making a positive difference for millions of American families,” said Wilson. “The 109th Congress has passed legislation this year that will permanently repeal the death tax, decrease the deficit, strengthen America’s borders, prevent frivolous lawsuits, improve our highways, and provide our country with a comprehensive energy policy. Because of our continued efforts, the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since September 2001.” Throughout the past 22 months of continuous job growth, over 3 million jobs have been created in America. In the 109th Congress, the House of Representatives has voted on a series of bills that help grow the economy and create additional jobs: The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (H.R. 6) Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act of 2005 (H.R. 8) Class Action Fairness Act (S.B 5) Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (S.256) Highway Bill (H.R. 3) Job Training Improvement Act (H.R. 27) Fiscal Year 2006 Budget (H.Con. Res. 95) “Each of these accomplishments will help ensure that our economy continues to improve, however we will be not satisfied until every American who wants to work can find a job. Although Democrats continue to try to obstruct our positive agenda, House Republicans will remain dedicated to helping American workers take care of their families,” said Wilson. ###
