Swift Congressional Action to Support Economic Recovery

Resolution 11-11.25L

WHEREAS The United States is experiencing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, and with 14 million workers unemployed and many losing their skills and connection to the work force as their unemployment persists, we risk lasting damage to the economy, and

 

WHEREAS the President has proposed and the Senate has introduced the American Jobs Act, which includes many components that have had traditional bi-partisan support including: rebuilding our aging infrastructure, modernizing our schools, employing teachers and first responders, and extending unemployment insurance benefits, including on-the-job training and entrepreneurship opportunities in unemployment insurance, providing tax benefits to employers adding workers, increasing wages, hiring veterans and hiring long term unemployed workers, and paying for these programs through small tax increases on incomes over a million dollars, 

 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party (CDP) supports the goals of the American Jobs Act, and calls on all Congressmembers to support the American people by passing legislation such as the American Jobs Act.
