Harper to Obama - Get off the campaign trail

The president has spent much of the last month traveling the country asking Congress to put party aside and “pass the bill,” referring to his $447 billion “jobs” plan.

But if the president were to get off the campaign trail and focus on the facts, he would learn that House Republicans have already advanced a pro-growth agenda that creates jobs without expanding the federal government’s role.

Let’s start with the federal budget.

The Facts: I voted to cut spending $5.8 trillion over the next decade relative to current law, to cap federal spending at the historical average of 20 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) and for a Balanced Budget Amendment. To boot, I voted to cut my own budget 11.4 percent, and for the last two years I have voluntarily returned approximately 10 percent of the money that my congressional office was authorized to spend.

How about energy jobs?

The Facts: I voted four times to increase American oil production, putting Americans back to work and leading to a reduced dependence on foreign oil and lower gas prices at the pump. These bills speed up the permitting process for drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, require the Secretary of the Interior to conduct more offshore oil and gas leases, direct the Department of the Interior to proceed with exploration and production in the areas estimated to contain the most oil and gas and eliminate the administrationrsquo;s bureaucratic delays that have stalled offshore energy production in the Outer Continental Shelf.
