Congressmen Hinojosa, Tierney and Miller to Offer Bill to Address Worker Retraining Crisis

Washington, D.C. – As the House Committee on Education and the Workforce looks to start work on reauthorizing the Workforce Investment Act, which is the preeminent federal employment service and job training law, Congressmen John Tierney (D-MA), Rubén Hinojosa (D-TX), and George Miller (D-CA) held a conference call with reporters today to announce their blueprint for how to strengthen and modernize this critical law. Later today, the lawmakers will introduce sweeping legislation to expand opportunities for workers, help businesses staff high-skilled and open positions, and assure that tax-payer dollars are being spent wisely and efficiently.

Congressman Rubén Hinojosa: Statement on the Republican Budget for Fiscal Year 2013

“The Republican budget introduced today by Rep. Paul Ryan today is an example of Republicans trying to do an end-run on Americans. Their budget for 2013 is a repeat of last year’s budget: it once again ends the Medicare guarantee while protecting tax cuts for the wealthy. Republicans keep working to take away the rights of women, young adults, seniors, families, and children with pre-existing conditions already benefiting from the American Care Act of 2010. Their budget will put power back in the hands of insurance companies. This is not a plan to reduce the deficit in a responsible way, instead it is a plan that will slash investments in innovation, education, and infrastructure, which puts our economic recovery at risk and threatens American jobs.”

Daily Bible Verse

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
