As Democrats continue to push their liberal big government agenda through Washington without any focus on jobs and the economy – standing in the way of jobs bills that are awaiting Senate attention and stalling Keystone, it’s just been reported that in the first quarter the U.S. economy grew at 0.1 percent.
If you are reporting on this news below is a statement from the RNC:
“These sobering economic numbers are the result of President Obama and a Democrat Party more interested in implementing ObamaCare, which is killing jobs and hurting businesses than on policies that will grow the economy. With President Obama and Senate Democrats now focused on a minimum wage increase - which will kill 500,000 jobs – it’s time we shift our focus back to the Republican pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda such as approving the Keystone Pipeline that will get our economy growing again.” Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman
