Rep. John Culberson (TX-07) issued the following statement today regarding the latest unemployment report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
"The number one threat to our national security is our debt. Today's unemployment numbers continue to show that the tax-and-spend policies of this administration don't work, and they are making the problem far worse. We cannot continue to write checks with borrowed money. The spending must stop. I am an original cosponsor of the Balanced Budget Amendment, and I will continue to push for this important legislation to become law. It is time to get the federal government out of our lives, out of our pocket books and take real steps to putting Americans back to work and getting our economy out of the gutter."
