Montanans ask what the Congressman has done to help create new jobs
This week, Rep. Dennis Rehberg is traveling the state of Montana visiting construction projects where new jobs were created through legislation Rehberg voted against. The same projects Rehberg claimed in an editorial board meeting Tuesday, "had merit."
Rehberg suggests tax relief as a solution in today's Billings Gazette, he fails to acknowledge that he voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which did just that. In fact, a full third of the Recovery Act focused on tax relief.
As part of his "Save My Own Job" tour, Rehberg stopped by the Northern Hotel in Billings. After voting against funding that supported jobs at the hotel site, he offered to help by "promising to have a staffer look for grant options and Department of Energy assistance."
