Obama's War on Jobs Draws Blood in May Report

$4 a gallon gas, soaring grocery prices, and blocked private sector jobs are driving America back into recession, and are all the direct result of Obama Administration policies and Senate refusal to consider dozens of job-creating bills passed in the House.

"Democrat policies are now taking full effect against economic recovery," says House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter (TX-31). "Obama blocked drilling jobs in the Gulf, blocked up to 130,000 new jobs on the Keystone Pipeline, and is shutting down the coal industry. Not only does that equate to lost energy jobs, but higher energy prices, more dependence on foreign oil, higher transportation costs, and higher prices on all consumer goods including groceries."

Carter says Obama could easily reverse much of the damage with executive orders, since the destructive policies are solely the result of Administration actions that bypassed Congress.

"With the stroke of a pen the President could start growing jobs again," says Carter. "I hope that this President will do so in June, rather than wait for a new President to do so in January. We need the jobs now."
