U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-8th) made the following statement regarding his commitment to visit ‘100 Businesses in 100 Days’:
“I am visiting ‘100 Businesses in 100 Days’ because I truly believe that the next three months may be one of the most critical stretches of time to get our economy moving again. Much of the uncertainty plaguing business owners across the district and the nation will come to a head.
With the coming travel and vacation seasons, fuel prices are expected to rise through Memorial Day and through the summer as this Administration has failed to present a comprehensive energy plan. In June, the Supreme Court will determine the constitutionality of this Administration’s misguided Obamacare legislation. By August, the Senate will have gone nearly 3 and a half years without passing a budget. All of these factors create an unpredictable lending and consumer spending environment which only makes it more difficult for businesses to grow and hire new workers.
I look forward to meeting with business owners and their employees to learn more about how they have risen to the challenge to sustain jobs, what I can do to get government out of their way, and, how we can work together to address the pending Summer of Uncertainty.”
