Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ-03) released the following statement Friday after the Department of Labor released its August unemployment report:
"Today's report continues the disturbing trend of unacceptable employment figures. Couple it with the White House's mid-session budget estimate of 9% unemployment through 2012, and we get a grim picture of our economic future. It is evident that the further government encroaches on the private sector, the further the private sector retreats.
"Washington is not good at creating jobs, it's only good at destroying them. We must reduce the regulatory burdens on the private sector so our innovators and job creators can expand, invest and hire."
