WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after House Republicans released their exact same agenda:

 
“Just as we expected, the Republican agenda has no new ideas and will take us right back to the exact same agenda that failed middle class families and small businesses.  Republican economic policies led to the deepest recession in generations, and their fiscal policies exploded the deficit – and they would do so again. On national security, they took their eye off the main fight against terrorism, and they took no actions to rein in the culture of corruption that flourished under their leadership.  And they still don’t have a real health care reform plan, meaning Americans with pre-existing conditions won’t get coverage, people will lose their insurance when they get sick, and insurance companies will be back in control of Americans’ health.
 
“I believe Americans will reject this agenda that takes us back to the exact same failed policies of the Bush Administration because they want to keep our country moving forward.”
