WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Conference Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) joined her colleagues in House leadership to discuss the ever growing uncertainty facing hardworking families in this weak economy.

Vice Chair Lynn Jenkins:

"'Uncertainty. That's the word I hear more than any other when I'm out and about at home in Kansas. Uncertainty from more and more regulations… uncertainty about higher taxes... uncertainty about unsustainable debt and the effects on our economy... and of course, uncertainty about the President's health care law.

"We had a broken health insurance system to begin with that needed some fixes, but what the President and the Democrats who controlled Congress at the time thrust upon us is completely misguided, and leaves American families struggling from uncertainty.

"Can I keep my doctor? How much will costs go up? Is the website working yet? Is my information safe and secure? What is the next delay the President will issue? Even volunteer firefighters are now concerned about this law and the impact that it will have on the budgets of communities they serve. Towns in my district operate on a very tight budget and this is not anything that they can accommodate.

"Hardworking Americans deserve better. They want fewer government mandates, more flexibility, and more certainty."

    On most days you can find Modot emergency response operator Roy Cota on the highways surrounding Joplin, clearing accidents and assisting motorists and local first responders. But that job would be impossible without assistance from the Transportation Management Center of the Ozarks, commonly referred to as the "TMC."
