WASHINGTON — Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on the December jobs report.
“The American people are concerned about this economy, and their elected representatives should be too. Too many families are living paycheck to paycheck. And those paychecks are shrinking. In other words, families are working harder and harder to get ahead, and yet too many are falling further behind.
“We can’t be satisfied until our country is meeting its full potential. That’s why, at the Ways and Means Committee, we’re going to do all we can to build a healthy economy and move America forward: fix our tax code, help create jobs, and make health care more affordable. The American people deserve nothing less.”
