WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the September jobs report:
“I’m grateful that a handful of Americans were able to find work last month,” said Chairman Priebus. “But unemployment remains too high, and the low labor force participation rate is deeply disturbing.
“The weak job market is the entirely predictable consequence of Democrats’ misguided policies. And as Americans are forced out of their jobs due to ObamaCare, out of touch Democrats continue to cheer for the disastrous law.
“Job creation has suffered as a direct result of the ObamaCare trainwreck. Employers can’t afford to hire, so many Americans can’t find good jobs. Men and women who need full-time work are forced to rely on part-time jobs.
“Hardworking Americans deserve better than this. Thanks to ObamaCare, millions are seeing smaller paychecks—if they’re receiving one at all—and more expensive healthcare. Republicans will continue to fight for policies that create jobs and a government that doesn’t get in the way of people trying to support themselves and their families.”
