"This morning's jobs report is just the most recent proof that the policies of President Obama and his tax and spend friends in Congress like Kathy Hochul are not working for New York. The disappointing numbers released this morning by the US Department of Labor show unemployment continuing to hover at 8.2 percent with no improvement over the last report.
"As a small business owner who has created or saved over 500 jobs, I know that government does not create jobs, but it is responsible for creating the right environment for small business owners to hire and invest. The policies of Obama-Hochul are failing miserably at creating an environment for hiring. Worse yet, the Obama-Hochul "federal government knows best' approach is strangling job growth, investment and entrepreneurship.
"Hardworking New Yorkers who are currently unemployed or underemployed deserve better. This country needs to get serious about cutting our spending, reducing our debt and helping to create much needed jobs across all sectors of our economy. In Congress, I will fight every day to get this country's economy back on track and put New Yorkers back to work."
