U.S. Republicans, led by House Speaker Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, want President Barack Obama to recognize the failures of Democratic lawmakers to get behind legislation aimed at putting people back to work.

On the table are several bills that slash red tape and allow businesses to grow and hire, reports CNSNews.com. Among them are a bill that stops redundant regulations on small businesses and farms, and one that curtails a stifling federal energy tax.

Boehner and Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., addressed their concerns in a letter to the president listing “potential opportunities for Congress and the White House to work together” to spur job growth.
One of their solutions to the crushing national debt is to allow states to decide how their money is spent and to get rid of mandatory federal infrastructure spending.

“We believe such a reform would be consistent with your statement last week that we should 'reform the way transportation money is invested, to eliminate waste, to give states more control over the projects that are right for them,’” the letter read.

The letter also supports expediting construction permits, restructuring the unemployment system, and spurring free-trade policies with emerging foreign economies like South Korea and Colombia.

"These reforms alone are not a substitute for a comprehensive pro-growth jobs agenda, such as the one House Republicans have put forth and continue to implement,” Boehner told Obama. “But they are potential areas for common ground.”
