U.S. Representative Daniel Webster (FL-08) issued the following statement encouraging a new direction in response to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics October Unemployment Report: “For 32 months, unemployment has been above 8 percent, a level the Administration said would never be reached if the stimulus – that cost taxpayers over one trillion dollars – was passed. For too long, hardworking families have been forced to wait and see if tax-and-spend policies would turn this economy around; these policies clearly have come up short.

Webster: House Passes Key Mental Health Reform Washington, D.C. – Representative Daniel Webster, FL-10, issued the following statement today after voting for the passage of the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 34).
