Welcome to Congressman Larry Bucshon

Representing the 8th District of Indiana

Jobs and the Economy

In order for our economy to have strong, consistent growth, we must focus on getting Americans back to work. With the nation’s unemployment at or near 8% since January 2009, Congress must take the necessary steps to reduce unemployment. In order for the private-sector to create jobs and hire new employees, we must address our corporate and individual tax structure. In addition, we need to eliminate overreaching government regulations that are causing economic uncertainty in the business community.  We also need to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which is causing businesses to reduce the number of employees and avoid expansion due to the costs of this unwise legislation.

As a nation that was founded on free enterprise, the government must stop passing legislation that prevents entrepreneurs from starting and growing small businesses, which are the heart of the economy.
