Camp Statement on America Speaking Out

May 25, 2010

Washington, D.C- Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) today issued the following statement upon the launch of, which invites active participation from the American people on issues of job creation, health care, tax reform and fiscal accountability among others. America Speaking Out is an effort of House Republicans to engage the American people in an active dialogue on the policy agenda they want Congress to consider in an effort to create a more responsive, responsible government.

“The American people have been speaking out against the Democrats’ tax and spend agenda throughout this Congress, and the Democrats have failed to listen. Congress’s agenda should reflect the priorities of our citizens, and America Speaking Out gives them a forum to debate and share their ideas on a wide range of issues. By listening to the American people, Republicans have offered better solutions on creating jobs and lowering the cost of health care without increasing our deficit and raising taxes on middle-class Americans. Congress has a responsibility to the American people to put their priorities first, and this initiative will enhance the open dialogue they deserve to have with their elected officials.”
