McCarthy Statement on Latest Jobs Report

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) released the following statement regarding this morning’s unemployment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“The failed policies of the Obama Administration are clearly leading our economy down the wrong path.  Almost every economic indicator points to an overall negative trend in economic growth, including yesterday’s more-than-500-point sell-off on the Dow Jones Industrial. Job creators are looking to Washington to put forward a pro-growth agenda to get people back to work and get America’s economy back on track. Unfortunately, the Senate refuses to act on any of the 10 job creation bills that House Republicans have passed so far in this Congress. Congressional Democrats and the White House need to join with House Republicans in making job creation our national priority.”
