Miami Herald: Letter to the Editor: Pass Workforce Act
In the wake of the tragic shooting against members of Congress this month, officials from both sides of the aisle vowed to come together to find common ground. Last week, an overwhelming bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives answered that call when we passed my bill with Democratic Rep. Danny Davis, of Illinois, the “Accelerating Individuals into the Workforce Act.”
The American people expect both major parties to have our differences and disagreements, but they also expect us to find common ground, and I am proud that this week Republicans and Democrats have done this in favor of those who need it most — welfare recipients and needy families in our country. I hope the Senate will take this bill up and send it to the president’s desk swiftly.
