Jobs and the Economy
The issues of jobs and the economy affect us all and are important to my work in Congress. I am committed to working in a bipartisan fashion to find a balanced solution to reduce our nation’s deficits and long-term debt, as well as maintain the good standing of our country’s financial reputation. As our economy continues to improve, there is more work to be done. There are far too many folks in San Antonio and across the nation out of a job, but I am committed to working with my colleagues so that every American who wants a job finds one.
