WASHINGTON – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement on the April jobs report:
“We're glad some Americans found work last month, but if you’re a mom or dad who’s been looking for a job month after month, this report just isn’t good enough for you,” said Chairman Priebus. “If you’re one of the millions of Americans working part time because there aren’t enough full-time jobs, then the Obama economy isn’t growing fast enough for you.
“From those who have dropped out of the labor force to those who can’t find enough work to pay the bills, this economy has left behind too many everyday Americans. There is still a long way to go, and there’s little evidence that the Obama or Clinton economic agendas will get us there.
“We need leaders who have a clear-eyed understanding of the frustrations of average Americans. The Clintons, however, think you can own two homes and be ‘dead broke.’ They think they’re earning 'almost no capital gains' when they make $371,000 off of investments. And they think earning half a million dollars from a Russian oligarch for a single speech is just ‘paying the bills.’
“Americans who are out of work can’t trust a leader who is that out of touch. Hillary Clinton is not the answer to what still ails our economy.”
