Americans need jobs and for too long our country has under invested in infrastructure, education, and scientific research. These three investments lay the foundation upon which the private sector is able to thrive.

Americans need jobs and there is important work to be done building this country's future through modernizing our infrastructure, improving education, and investing in scientific research.

Letter to
John Boehner and Eric Cantor

President Obama outlined the American Jobs Act in 2011. This legislation would have created thousands of good jobs here in America by putting teachers and construction workers back to work.

Congress has failed to act on this legislation and as a result thousands, if not millions of Americans are needlessly unemployed. This is not a game. American families are hurting. By failing to act on a jobs bill Congress is damaging the lives of ordinary American families.

Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor, for the good of the country please pass a substantial Jobs Bill which invests in education, infrastructure, and scientific research and pass this bill as soon as possible!
