Public Statements

Rehberg Calls for New Economic Approach in Responding to Weak National Jobs Numbers

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today released the following statement after the national unemployment rate remained at 8.2 percent, after the economy added just 80,000 jobs, far fewer than anticipated. Rehberg has long been a critic of the anti-job agenda of President Obama and his Senate allies, including the so-called Stimulus bill, which supporters promised would keep unemployment below 8% and which instead spent nearly $1 trillion to grow the government.

"We need a new approach to grow jobs and the economy. In 2006, Montana's unemployment was stable at historic lows. But new leaders in Washington brought a new direction and both unemployment and the federal debt have doubled in just six short years. Lasting economic recovery requires a different approach that empowers small business, reins in government growth and ends crippling uncertainty."
