The American People are Still Struggling

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:

“Today’s jobs report reveals, yet again, that the American people are still struggling. They’re struggling to find jobs, provide for their families, expand their businesses, and plan for their futures. And it’s not fair. It’s not fair that the Administration’s failed economic policies continue to stand in their way – at the doctor’s office, the gas pump, the dinner table, and in the job market. We ask the President not to settle for a mediocre economy – when, with the right economic policies, we can provide the American people with a robust one. Republicans stand ready to tackle these problems with solutions that expand opportunity, not stifle it.”
