Kline Statement on Executive Order Affecting Federal Contractors

House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement after President Obama signed an executive order affecting federal contractor employees: 

The president’s failed policies are crushing working families with high unemployment, rising health care costs, and stagnant wages. We need commonsense solutions that will create jobs and raise the wages of all Americans, not just a select few – and the president's action fails on both counts. Despite the president’s executive political ploys, House Republicans will continue to advance responsible reforms that help improve the lives of all working families.
