And congresswoman ready -- Republican of North Carolina.
Believes that there is plenty already being done.
At least by the house and it's the senate that is failing us congresswoman -- joins us now I believe from the Russell rotunda that she is.
Great to see -- congresswoman.
Good to be with you today down them and congresswoman watching you have a problem with the way the Senate's acting you think although.
There when you look at the public approval ratings as congress is a whole that the public -- disappointed in but you say the problem is really in the senate -- Is he -- we have passed bills since day one -- will be job creators and we understand the situation I'm very excited that the president has finally decided that we are running out of time and we have to do some -- -- in that area.
We've been working on it since we've been here.
There are fifteen bills right now that we -- passed over in the house and gone onto the senate and Harry -- will not bring them up for a vote.
So you see -- the issue the American people -- of course.
Lump us all into one category and say we're not working together we are working in the House of Representatives.
We know that if we -- these initiatives through and are signed into law that they will be job creators and this is where we need to get started congresswoman do you think.
What examples of the bills that you believe.
That I have -- in the house that would actually -- make a real difference to world.
-- -- -- -- Yeah you do you there are a couple different categories we're talking about decreasing regulation.
We're talking about decreasing spending we're talking about increasing an end and getting back to drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
These are all job creators.
Now that we can get this this mall going down the field you know -- making steady slow progress in the house.
We had bipartisan support on these issues and yet here again.
Harry Reid will not bring it up -- -- -- that we passed repeal of Obama here at the very first vote in the house and of course Harry Reid will not touch -- want and we know he approval rating for the god for the president's health care bill is -- really low right now.
All right I'm having fun with that very -- congressmen -- standing alongside you actually in the Russell rotunda that congress would.
I'm volatility that is telling to -- his voice stand up anyway but the -- President Obama and the Democrats would say come as.
That there is that they put forward an overarching jobs build the American Jobs -- That was brought up for a vote in the senate and Republicans voted down so -- you'll find him.
Do you think that this is the president doesn't even have his own car -- the court on this there's been via these little Democrats support for his bill.
Hey don't go through the senate is really not be appropriate ways to go forward with this anyway I believe.
And did what he had done is put forward a jobs bill that puts band -- on the situation temporary measures to create jobs.
It is basically going around the country campaigning with it.
This is not the answer there were a few things in his film that we all agree on for instance last week.
We passed the repeal of the 3% withholding.
For any business doing a government contract work weeks -- weeks harms all levels of government and our -- companies.
Yeah very encouraging that will get voted on in the senate and the president is in favor that -- twelfth -- we do work.
Together on these issues.
But we have to work harder and there again were calling on the planet we're calling on the president to pass these fifteen bills that are still sitting over there.
All right the F president you'll probably away congresswoman and I gave his speech this morning I keep breaks -- now Washington DC.
And -- he actually said that the one thing.
That is needed in.
By congress because they hold the first -- so I guess you agree with the president on -- -- I can't agree more with him he is absolutely right but the problem is not us in the House of Representatives the problem there again as I've I've pointed out.
It's -- -- and the president himself from there he is pushing his initiative he is pushing his agenda.
But they are not job -- with the American people are looking for a -- -- long term.
-- -- solutions were looking for solutions here not just mandates to get us through to the 2012 election.
So that's happening and it is yeah this.
Well you know I I would love to hear what Harry Reid had to say about it and fortunately those of us in the house and we keep getting questioned about it.
-- -- -- very few interviews with Harry Reid I would like to vote for someone to put his feet to the fire and ask him where he stands on these pieces of legislation.
All right we'll -- -- lesson that -- and I want to.
It was a woman running only problem.
You know Carolina thank you so much for surviving the -- down that lab -- -- doing an interview with ABC -- excuse the only.
-- -- -- -- Thanks for being --
