Dismal Pattern in Jobs Numbers
Arlington, VA – Today Americans for Prosperity the nation’s largest free market grassroots organization, released the following statement regarding the recent jobs report numbers.
“Month after month, the sluggish jobs report has proven that stimulus spending, higher taxes, and expanding government do not, and cannot generate lasting growth or prosperity,” said AFP President Tim Phillips. “At this rate it will take nearly 10 years to return to the employment levels before the Great Recession.
“It’s time for Obama to turn away from big government policies that stifle entrepreneurship and limit growth, with American families shouldering the burden. We should be getting government barriers out of the way of real enterprise and approving major work projects like the Keystone pipeline.”
