"You Asked and We Listened"
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 This common-sense legislation modernizes outdated government regulations by giving hourly wage workers in the private sector the freedom to receive time off instead of cash wages for overtime work as they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.

At the first formal gathering of the Republican National Committee since the party’s electoral defeat in November 2012, GOP standard-bearer, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, argued that we must “recalibrate the compass of conservatism” away from Washington budget issues, but showed no inclination toward ideological retreat: “We do not need to change what we believe as conservatives — our principles are timeless.”
Fair enough. No one should expect Republicans to change their core beliefs just because some of those ideas make them unpopular with Democrats. As Jindal observed, liberals already have a party. Nor would any principled Republican be expected to abandon his or her beliefs out of political expedience.
Nonetheless, given the growing importance of minority voters, the increased acceptance of same-sex marriage and liberalized marijuana laws among politically-engaged younger voters, and the GOP’s cringe-inducing collective mismanagement of women’s issues during the last election cycle, Republicans will need to change something or accept permanent status as the underdog party in national elections. And as Democrats seek to make their national dominance permanent by capturing Hispanic-heavy Republican bastions like Texas and swing states like Florida, Republicans are going to have to get over any change-resistant squeamishness in short order.
