Nov 16, 2011 Issues: Economy and Jobs

Washington, DC (November 16, 2011) Today, Congressman Steve Pearce issued the following response in regards to receiving a perfect score on Competitive Enterprise Institute’s (CEI) Labor Scorecard:

“Jobs have been and continue to be my top priority in Congress, so I am honored to receive this recognition,” said Pearce. “Hardworking Americans need government to take a stand to return our nation to the land where success is rewarded, opportunities are unlimited, and anything is possible. By focusing on job growth, we can help our families, communities, and nation return to economic security. This is my focus, and it is the focus of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. I thank CEI for recognizing my efforts in Congress and for the work they do to help promote job growth.”

“CEI’s principles of limited government line up with my own,” Pearce continued. “Washington’s job is to expand job creation, not to control jobs. The American public wants efficient and effective government.”

According to their website, CEI is “a public policy organization dedicated to the principles of free markets and limited government.” They have created a scorecard for Members of the 112th Congress, based on each Member’s votes on worker issues. Congressman Pearce received a 100 percent rating on the scorecard.
