Roskam Statement on October Jobs Report

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (IL-06) issued the following statement after the Department of Labor released their October jobs report showing the national unemployment rate is 9%:

"Nine percent national unemployment is the latest reminder that Senate Democrats need to immediately take up the House's "Forgotten 15" job-creating bills that are still stalled in the Senate. House Republicans have passed significant bipartisan commonsense solutions that would remove barriers to job creation for America's economy -- yet the Senate still refuses to act.

"Our economy is still suffering from the over-taxing, over-regulating and over-spending policies of the last years from the Democrats that have run Washington. It's been over two and a half years since the stimulus first passed, yet trillions in debt later, unemployment is still 9% -- well above the 8% peak promised by this Administration."
