Speech on U.S. Economy and Job Creation at the Center for American Progress Action Fund

House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer appeared at the Center for American Progress Action Fund on Friday, July 23rd at 11:15 a.m., speaking about Democrats’ record on job creation, economic recovery, and the challenge of balancing job creation with long-term action on deficits. Leader Hoyer discussed the policies that have helped pull our country back from the brink of a second Great Depression, and described the actions needed moving forward to create jobs and strengthen the middle class – and how Republicans would take us back to the failed policies that led to the recession in the first place.
