I believe that prompt passage and implementation of the common sense American Jobs Act is an essential step to saving working families, renewing the belief that responsibility and hard work will be rewarded, and prioritizing the well-being of families to lead a balanced rebuilding of the American economy.
President Barack Obama's plan will create jobs as soon as the bill is passed. It is based on long-shared and supported ideas. There is no reason to delay the urgent relief that the bill can provide.
I urge elected officials to expedite passage of the American Jobs Act and, further, urge all Mainers to join in getting this great country moving in the right direction: working.
Perhaps this is the moment to renew a sense of fairness and responsibility in this wonderful country.
The American Jobs Act should be passed — now.
