Republican Pro-Growth Policies = Strong American Economy

Congressional Republicans have been working to promote pro-growth economic policies and we are continuing to see the positive results day-in and day-out.  As a result of our work, the federal deficit has declined for the second year in a row and has been cut in half three years ahead of schedule.

By restraining spending in Washington and allowing Americans to keep more of what they earn, we are creating jobs and making America more prosperous.  Democrats in Washington believe we can tax our way out of this deficit, but Republicans know better.

And there's more good news about the economy in addition to a shrinking budget deficit. The Dow recently reached a record-high.  Disposable personal income is up more than 14 percent since 2001.  Home ownership is higher than ever, with two-thirds of Americans owning homes.  Unemployment is at its lowest average since the 1960s.  And nearly 6 million jobs have been created since 2003.

More Americans are working and keeping more of what they earn.  As a result, revenues are up and the deficit is down.  Our tax cuts are working, and the American economy continues to grow.
