RNC Statement on the August Jobs Report
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the August jobs report:
“The good news is that a handful of America’s unemployed millions did find work last month. The bad news is that America could be doing so much better,” said Chairman Priebus. “Sadly, President Obama continues to stall job-creating projects like the Keystone Pipeline, while refusing to admit that his signature policy, ObamaCare, is a job-killer.
“The ObamaCare train wreck gets worse every day, and as a result job creation has suffered. Too many businesses can’t afford to hire, and too many Americans can’t find jobs—no matter how hard they look. ObamaCare isn’t improving health care, but it is making our economy ill.
“It’s not fair that Democrats’ pursuit of a misguided agenda has left so many Americans without good-paying jobs, and it’s deeply troubling that the labor force participation rate is at the lowest level in 35 years. Republicans in Congress and Republican governors across the country will continue to fight on the side of the American worker.”
