Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) responded to the Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report for the month of December 2012:
"I hope this weak jobs report will finally focus the White House and Democrats on the need to grow the economy and create jobs for the American people. President Obama's policies are not working and he needs to move away from his failed tax- and-spend liberalism of the past and embrace the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.
"In the new Congress, my Republican colleagues and I in the House will continue to pass bills to help grow the economy and create jobs. This will include promoting job expansion by simplifying the tax code, strengthening energy production, and letting the free market prevail over picking winners and losers. We will also need to make responsible cuts to some government programs and reform others to ensure we don't pass on a job-killing debt to our children and grandchildren." -- Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
