Congresswoman and GOP Conference Secretary Virginia Foxx, R-NC, issued the following statement on today's jobless report:

"Millions of Americans are still struggling to find work to provide for their families in this uncertain job market.

"Unemployment figures alone don't accurately reflect the fragile state of our economy. 7.7 percent unemployment suggests progress that the more than 540,000 Americans who gave up looking for work last month would dispute.

"The fiscal cliff is approaching. As we work to avert it, Congress must be resolved to protect jobs, not place more in jeopardy by taxing small businesses and wasting money on ineffective government stimulus."
