GOP Address: Washington Is the 'Problem,' Not the 'Solution'
· Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California says when it comes to job creation and turning the U.S. economy around, "Washington is not the solution -- Washington is the problem." In this week's Republican address, McCarthy joins his party cohorts in supporting the GOP-hatched Balanced Budget Amendment, pointing to past support for the measure. "This proposal has had strong bipartisan support in the past, and I'm hopeful we can again work together to pass this Amendment when it come to the House floor in November," he says.
· "All told, the House has passed more than a dozen bills as part of our plan to get Americans working again. Unfortunately, the Democratic-led Senate has failed to vote on them, he says." "That is unacceptable. The president needs to get off the sidelines and get involved. The president needs to come of the campaign trail and get to work."
