As the legendary Willie Nelson recently said: Americans are "much more worried about ceilings over their heads these days than they are about the debt ceiling." He's right, and Democrats know that nothing is more critical to Americans' economic security than good-paying jobs.
In Congress, our work must be putting people back to work. To meet that charge, Democrats have proposed our "Make It In America" initiative, led by Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer. It presents ideas backed by both parties: to rebuild our roads, bridges, and rail lines; to invest in innovation, broadband, clean energy, and new technologies to create the jobs of tomorrow for our businesses and workers.
