McMorris Rodgers: the Hire More Heroes Act Creates Jobs for Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Hire More Heroes Act:
 
“There is no group more deserving of employment than our servicemen and women. When our veterans return home, it is our duty to help them find their next opportunity.
 
“However, Obamacare’s unfair employer mandate has prevented small businesses from hiring workers during these already difficult economic times. This bipartisan legislation incentivizes small businesses to hire qualified veterans by exempting them from the mandate,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “By cutting red tape and encouraging new job opportunities, the Hire More Heroes Act helps both our small businesses and our veterans thrive.”

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Hire More Heroes Act:

“There is no group more deserving of employment than our servicemen and women.  The troops that have served at Fairchild Air Force Base – and the thousands of service members across Eastern Washington – know firsthand the challenges veterans face when they return home.  It is our duty to help these American heroes find their next opportunity.  But Obamacare’s unfair employer mandate has prevented small businesses from hiring workers during these already difficult economic times. This bipartisan legislation incentivizes small businesses to hire qualified veterans by exempting them from the mandate,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “By cutting red tape and encouraging new job opportunities, the Hire More Heroes Act helps Eastern Washington’s small businesses and our veterans thrive.”
