While voting against middle class interests, what does Rep Gerlach tell voters in his district?

From the website:

It is critical that we get our economy moving and put Pennsylvanians back to work, and Jim has made the issue of jobs a key part of his legislative focus. During the current Congress, Jim has voted in favor of nearly 30 pro-jobs bills, all of which have been ignored in the Democrat-led Senate and by President Obama.

“30 pro-jobs bills”? As the Huffington Post reported, “House Republicans routinely beat the drum about the hard work they have done in passing ‘more than 30 jobs bills’ … But there’s a problem with their jobs bills: They don’t create jobs. At least, they won’t any time soon. In interviews conducted by The Huffington Post with five economists, most said the GOP jobs package would have no meaningful impact on job creation in the near term. Some said it was not likely to do much in the long term, either.”

How about Medicare? Gerlach voted to turn Medicare into a voucher plan, that doesn’t even give seniors enough of as check to buy the private insurance they would have to go out and find — on their own — at the very time they need health care the most!
