"You Asked and We Listened"
By Sharon Day
The legacy of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton is firmly woven into the fabric of our country and the history of the Republican Party, yet their efforts too often are treated as mere footnotes in American history.
The vast majority of Americans are likely unaware that March is Women’s History Month. While that is troubling, it is even more troubling that many Americans don’t realize the role that Republican women have played in our nation’s history.
This is no surprise when most history books still focus on the stories of men, without giving enough time to the remarkable stories of American women. The impact of this is felt at the highest levels of business and politics, where women still struggle for true equality. Currently, women elected to Congress represent less than 20 percent of the governing body, even though women represent 52 percent of the American electorate.
Our economy is struggling.
Our community is struggling.
With more than 2 million Latinos looking for work, we need more job opportunities as soon as possible.
That's why House Republicans are pursuing an all-American energy plan.
Tapping into American energy would unleash countless job opportunities for you, for your families, and for your community.
It would create jobs, lower prices at the pump, and give all of us a more secure future.
It's not fair that Washington is standing in the way of jobs.
We are eager for the opportunity work, so let's build the Keystone pipeline and let's explore new sources of energy.
Republicans are working every day to improve peoples' lives in our communities and create more jobs.
An all-American energy plan would do just that. Thank you.
In this week's address, Rep. Martha Roby speaks about the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2013, which the House passed this week. This common-sense legislation modernizes outdated government regulations by giving hourly wage workers in the private sector the freedom to receive time off instead of cash wages for overtime work as they choose. Meeting the demands of both work and family is never easy, but because of this bill, hardworking Americans will have more flexibility to better balance their time between both. House Republicans are committed to helping you make the most of your time as we work to grow our economy and create more jobs for all Americans.

In this week's address, Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) discusses the disappointing facts in President Obama's budget: a tax increase on middle-class families, hundreds of billions of dollars added to the national debt, and never achieving balance. Americans don't need another tax increase, especially with April 15th around the corner. House Republicans have a solution to reign in wasteful spending and simplify our tax code with a balanced budget:http://GOP.gov/budget
In this week's address, Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) discusses the devastating cuts in President Obama's sequester, due to take effect March 1st. The House has passed two replacement plans with responsible spending cuts, and the President and Senate Democrats have yet to offer a serious replacement. It's time Washington Democrats work with us the replace the President's damaging sequester.
Congresswoman Susan Brooks (R-IN) gives an update on our efforts to get our economy moving again and the importance of having a budget.
