As our economy continues to recover from the worst recession since the Great Depression – brought on by lax regulation and the failed policies of the Bush Administration – Congressman Lynch is committed to creating good jobs here at home and building a 21st century economy.
To give our economy a much-needed jolt, Congressman Lynch worked with Democrats in Congress to pass the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which created more than 2 million jobs, cut taxes for 95% of American families, and invested in our nation’s critical infrastructure, right when our economy needed it most.
As a member of the House Committee on Financial Services, Congressman Lynch help craft the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which created new robust consumer protections, ended government bailouts of the financial system, and imposed transparency and accountability requirements for the most complex, shadowy financial markets. He is also committed to giving regulators tasked with putting the Dodd-Frank Act into effect the resources they need to protect American families.
We will not fully emerge from the recent economic recession until American businesses start investing here at home again. Congressman Lynch will continue to fight for policies that combat outsourcing and invest in the American worker here at home.
