New Jobless Numbers Prove America and Arkansas Can't Afford More of the Pelosi/Obama Agenda

"Causey Needs to Explain Why His First Vote in Congress Will Be to Extend Their Tenure"

With today's release of new national unemployment numbers showing that the jobless rate went up and that the US lost jobs for the third straight month, Republican Congressional Candidate Rick Crawford again called for drastic changes in Washington.

Crawford Stated, "The Washington politicians may just see these unemployment numbers as stats on a sheet, but here in the First District I see everyday these folks and the hard time they are having because of the misguided leadership in Congress. While the Obama/Pelosi economic quagmire continues, families across Arkansas are losing their jobs, farms and businesses. The liberals in Washington are out of control and if there isn't a serious change in direction at once even more people are going to be in real trouble. The next Congress must start on day one by extending the 01 and 03 small business tax cuts and aggressively cutting back Washington's intrusion into our families' lives."

Today's Jobless numbers came at the end of what many in the Obama administration had termed as the "summer recovery months". August also became the 16th straight month where unemployment has remained above 9%.

Crawford Campaign Manager Jonah Shumate added "These numbers again prove that the Washington Chad Causey has been working in for the last 10 years is broken. Chad needs to explain to all the people in Arkansas why his first vote as a member of Congress would be for continuing the failed agenda of the Obama/Pelosi leadership team. It's high time he started taking principled stands on these issues and stopped using slick Washington doublespeak to duck the issues."
