WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding today’s dismal jobs report:
“Today’s unemployment numbers are another painful reminder that America still awaits economic leadership from President Obama. He spent his summer fundraising and golfing, promising to lay out a jobs plan only after his Martha’s Vineyard vacation—all while nearly 14 million Americans remained jobless.
“As the country awaits another speech from President Obama next week, those without jobs can only hope this address will be different—with substantive solutions instead of empty rhetoric.
“The President needs the courage to admit his regulatory regime is the biggest road block to job creation. America’s job creators cannot hire workers while handcuffed by regulations, crushed by mandates and threatened with taxes. If the President refuses to change course, America’s unemployed with be the victims of his failure.”
