Camp Statement on December Jobs Report

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) released the following statement in reaction to the December jobs report from the U.S. Department of Labor. A net total of 155,000 jobs were created, and the unemployment rate for December rose to 7.8 percent from the 7.7 percent rate previously reported for November.

"It is clear there is still a long way to go before we can declare the economy is healthy again. This week, we took a critical step toward strengthening our economy by making Republican tax cuts permanent so that more money stays in the hands of families and job creators, but that was a first step and not the last step. The simple truth is that our tax code is a nightmare. Washington must work with the American people to pass and enact comprehensive tax reform that makes the tax code simpler and fairer so they are in control of their economic security, rather than Washington."
