Helping America's Job Creators

It is no surprise that the majority of Texans say the top issues facing the United States today are the economy, federal spending and unemployment, according to a recent University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll.    

House Republicans have been working hard to create an environment for job creation and economic growth. We have passed a responsible budget that reduces our debt and puts our nation on a sound fiscal path.   

As Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I am pleased to be part of this effort and have been working with my colleagues to find ways to help strengthen the economy and create jobs for American workers.   

First, the House Republican plan for America’s job creators will help small business owners by reducing the regulatory burdens that they face.   

Earlier this year, I introduced the REINS Act, legislation that reins in federal regulators from imposing costly and unnecessary government regulations. It requires Congressional review and approval for any expensive government regulation before it can be implemented. This legislation is a crucial component of our plan to help America’s job creators, as government regulations cost our economy more than $1.75 trillion each year, according to the Small Business Administration. 

Another way we plan to unleash America’s job creators is to update our patent system. Since our founding, American innovators have played an important role in our nation’s growth and prosperity. 

But if we want to foster future creativity, we must do more to encourage today’s innovators. One big obstacle facing innovators today is the time it takes to get a patent approved – an average of three years. 

Over one million patent applications are pending. These patents represent future products that create jobs. 

Our proposal allows the Patent and Trademark Office to retain the fees it collects so that more examiners can be hired to address the backlog and new products can get to market faster. 

We must take significant steps today to secure the economic future of our nation. It is an honor to be part of this effort to help our economy recover and create more American jobs. 

 

 

Dear Friend,

Thank you for subscribing to my e-newsletter. It is always helpful to have my constituents’ views on challenges confronting the nation. Here are some of this week's issues that affect our Congressional district.

                                   Sincerely,    
                          

         
    

 

 

 House Votes on Raising the Debt Limit

This week, the House voted aganist a bill to raise the federal government’s debt limit by $2.4 trillion.

This vote made it clear that Republicans are committed to cutting spending and reducing our nation’s debt, and we will not vote to increase the debt limit without substantial spending cuts and reforms.

 If President Obama and Congressional Democrats want to raise the debt limit, they must be willing to work with Republicans to cut spending and get our debts and deficits under control.  

House Republicans will not support an unconditional increase in the debt limit to continue spending money we don’t have.
