Hare sponsored public jobs on community-based public interest projects

SPONSOR'S INTRODUCTORY REMARKS:

Rep. HARE: The unemployed don't want another benefits check. They want a job. H.R. 4290 would tackle this problem by creating and helping retain millions of jobs. It will reach that goal by investing $60 billion per year over 3 years in TARP money.

Wall Street got its bailout. It's time for Main Street to get theirs.
