WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the release of the latest jobs numbers from the Department of Labor:
"This latest jobs report is yet another indication that our economy continues to struggle. Far too many Americans remain out of work now for far too long. The Democrats who run Washington continue to pursue policies of massive government intervention. They think more taxes and more regulation are going to get our economy back on track, and that is just plain wrong. House Republicans have a plan with solutions to spur economic growth and create more jobs – a plan that will make life easier for moms, dads, young people just starting their careers, and seniors. Americans want a strong economy and a more secure future, and the Republican plan lays the groundwork for just that."
Earlier today, the House Republican Conference released a new video contrasting the President's rhetoric on jobs with reality.
