U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge urges U.S. Senate to pass jobs bill

Representatives Marcia L. Fudge, D-Cleveland; Dennis Kucinich, D-Cleveland, and Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo; are urging the U.S. Senate to pass a comprehensive jobs bill.

Fudge issued the following statement:

“The Senate is poised to consider a jobs bill that will keep teachers in their classrooms, police on the beat and nurses on the job. These provisions are fully paid for by closing tax loopholes that benefit only a select few Americans. Of course, creating and maintaining jobs and rebuilding the tax base is the best way to reduce our deficit. As such, there is no reason why any Senator should stand in the way of this job-creation legislation. I challenge the Senate to offer their support, or at least get out of the way.”

-- John Arthur Hutchison
