Quayle Responds to Disappointing Jobs Report

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Ben Quayle released the following statement in response to the May jobs report, which showed the unemployment rate rising to 8.2% and just 69,000 jobs being added.

"Today's poor jobs report is yet another sad testament to the failure of President Obama's economic policy. Well into a supposed economic recovery, the unemployment rate is still above 8%. The President's policies have failed to energize our economy and bring security and opportunity to struggling families in Arizona and across America.

"The President has tried debt-driven stimulus measures. He's tried tax-code gimmicks and subsidy stunts. It's time he tried simplifying the tax code, reining in regulation and red tape and scrapping his disastrous healthcare bill. For Arizona, where our unemployment rate exceeds the national average, the time for smart economic policy can't come soon enough."
