Keith Rothfus Statement on April Jobs Numbers


Location: Pittsburgh, PA

President Obama told us if we enacted his agenda the unemployment rate would stay below 8%. It has now been 38 months since the passing of President Obama's stimulus package, and we have now had 38 straight months of unemployment above 8%.

Keith Rothfus, Congressional candidate for PA-12, commented, "We must bring jobs back to Southwestern Pennsylvania, and we won't do that through the big government agenda being enacted by President Obama and Congressman Critz. We will do it by empowering the job creators and the people right here in Pennsylvania, not the bureaucrats in Washington, DC.

President Obama's big-government agenda has empowered Washington, and the lights here at home are turning off. Five coal-fired power plants in Western Pennsylvania are closing, costing hundreds of jobs. And now we're faced with President Obama's healthcare takeover, which through the support of Congressman Critz threatens to destroy 2,200 more jobs here in Pennsylvania.

We must Re-Light America, and we can do it from right here in America's new energy capital, Southwestern PA. But we need new leadership."
