Washington, D.C. - Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today to mark the 200th day of the Republican majority in the House, which falls tomorrow:
'Tomorrow is the 200th day of the Republican majority, and the American people are asking: where is the Republican jobs plan? Since taking over the House, Republicans have voted against Democratic jobs legislation ten times and for measures that would potentially destroy 2 million jobs.
'Republicans have spent 200 days ignoring jobs and pushing an ideological agenda to end Medicare and protect tax breaks for special interests, Big Oil, and corporations that ship American jobs overseas, as Democrats work to create jobs through our Make It In America agenda.
'It's time for Republicans to join Democrats to focus on Americans' top priority - jobs - while responsibly reducing the deficit, strengthening the middle class, protecting our seniors and growing our economy.'
