Scott Garrett backs Jobs Through Growth Act

U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett sat in the tasting room of a small winery last month in Warren County and explained to its operators why the president's jobs bill was all wrong. Garrett, R-Warren/Sussex, said the American Jobs Act rehashed failed policies that would result in more debt and fail to cut unemployment. At the time, the congressman did not reveal his plans for generating jobs in New Jersey, where unemployment has stuck around 9 percent for 16 months. Now, Garrett has voiced his support for a jobs bill he believes is a better fit for his district. The Jobs Through Growth Act focuses on ...

Garrett:Other Ethnicities Are Not As Straight-Forward

It's a little surprising this comment last week from Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) hasn't gotten more attention. Here's Philip Molnar of the Express-Times: [Local business leaderRichard C. Spanier] said the best people to do business with are those in the American Midwest because of their "straight-forward" attitude. "Other ethnicities are not that way," Garrett said. "They'll say yes to you constantly and then you'll realize they really didn't mean it." Garrett said after the meeting he meant people in other countries. The clarification doesn't really make this comment much less bizarre ...

Garrett Applauds FDA for Accelerating Approval of Duchenne Treatment
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) issued the following statement after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this week announced the accelerated approval for a new treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy: “I was encouraged by the FDA’s announcement this week that a new treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy received accelerated approval after I recently called on them to do so. This is an important step that gives children facing this devastating and rare disease access to a promising treatment. This issue is important to me, and I will continue to make sure the FDA is not holding up potentially life-saving treatments for our kids.” Garrett joined calls with other Members of Congress in February and again in July expressing frustration at the FDA’s inability to complete its review. ###
Garrett Calls on FDA to Answer Questions About EpiPen Monopoly
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) called on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to express concerns over the near monopoly currently held by Mylan Pharmaceuticals on the EpiPen (epinephrine injection) which is used in the treatment of severe allergic reactions. The price of these life-saving devices has skyrocketed recently, making them unaffordable for many Americans families. “Like many government bureaucracies, the Food and Drug Administration stifles innovation and creates unnecessary roadblocks that end up hurting the American people,” said Garrett. “In this case, their short-sightedness has made a common treatment that millions of Americans rely on prohibitively expensive. The FDA has a job to protect Americans and ensure the food and drugs we use are safe, but they also need to make sure their actions don’t hurt the very people they’re trying to protect.” The letter, signed by a number of Members of Congress, asks the FDA to allow other companies t
