We have great faith in the abilities of American entrepreneurs. From small businesses to large corporations, they will lead the way. We believe that the government’s role in our economic recovery is to make sure that policies are in place that foster and reward responsible risk-taking and innovation.
As members of the Blue Dog Coalition, we are confident that our membership will continue to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to put forth common-sense, fiscally responsible ways to fast-track our economic recovery and develop a stronger, more competitive American economy.
Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) is running for Senate in 2012. Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.) is the Blue Dog Coalition whip.
