U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) issued the following statement regarding the Nevada unemployment figures released earlier today:
"This stagnant economy is further proof that the policies coming from Washington are failing. The President's healthcare law, stimulus, and constant threat of tax increases have stifled economic growth and job creation. These policies are making a tough situation worse. Nevadans have waited far too long for the President and Congress to deliver solutions - solutions that will create certainty for both individuals and businesses. Unfortunately, all the American people have received are broken promises and empty rhetoric. It's past time we move our nation in a new direction. By reforming the tax code, reigning in burdensome regulations, and helping families stay in their homes, we can create an environment that encourages long-term economic growth and creates the jobs Nevadans have been asking for," said Senator Dean Heller.
