"The anniversary of President Obama’s 'Recovery Summer' publicity stunt is a good reminder that families and small businesses in Ohio and across the country can’t afford more spending and more debt,” House Speaker John Boehner wrote in the National Journal. “They need more jobs. And Republicans are listening."

Now the economy is threatened by a double dip as small businesses, manufacturing and the housing market run out of steam."
