WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after the Congressional Progressive Caucus introduced their jobs platform, the Rebuild the American Dream Framework:

“I want to thank the Progressive Caucus for their tireless focus on putting Americans back to work. Americans across the country continue to struggle in a weak economy, and the Progressive Caucus has made sure that those Americans are not forgotten. While Republicans have not taken strong action on jobs this year, the Progressive Caucus continues to advocate for job creation measures. I look forward to working with them to create jobs through the President’s American Jobs Act, House Democrats’ Make It In America plan, and the Rebuild the American Dream Framework.”
