Dreier on the Pledge

Rep. David Dreier (R., Calif.), ranking member of the House Rules Committee, comments on the Pledge to America:

“Our top priority is job creation and deficit reduction,” Dreier said.  “The key to doing that is preventing massive tax increases on families and small businesses and getting government spending under control.  We also need to change the way Congress operates.  That means a change from the way both Republicans and Democrats have conducted the people’s business.  We need to restore real transparency and debate to the legislative process, particularly on spending bills.  We need to guarantee legislation is available for at least three days before it’s up for a vote.  We also need ensure the legislation we pass has its authority based in the Constitution.  Applying these simple standards will make Congress more effective and more responsive to the American people.”
