Rep. Diane Black called on President Barack Obama to create a "new approach" to improving the country's job situation by cutting "unnecessary spending."
The Tennessee Republican, delivering the GOP's weekly radio address, said that "the American people want to keep the government running while cutting its cost." She pointed out that it has been "just two weeks since the House passed H.R. 1, a bill that makes much-needed spending cuts and keeps the government running through the end of the fiscal year. Unfortunately, the Democrats who run the Senate haven't allowed a vote on this bill or any other bill that would cut spending and keep the government running long-term."
