Jon Huntsman today issued the following statement about the June jobs report showing rising unemployment and only 18,000 jobs added:

"Rising unemployment rates and extremely anemic job creation are not acceptable. Even in great hardship, the American people have been extraordinarily patient in waiting for the better and brighter times promised to them by this Administration. Their patience has rightly worn thin. We need free-market, pro-growth policies to spark a wave of job growth -- the same policies we implemented in Utah to make it the fastest-growing state in the nation. America needs new leadership to turn our country around."
