"The President may think this country's economy is recovering, but the numbers tell a different story. January's jobs report, released just this morning, shows unemployment on the rise. Americans have now endured 50 straight months of unemployment above 7%. Worse yet, earlier this week, it was reported that our economy actually shrank for the first time in years and consumer confidence took yet another hit. This is all evidence that the economic policies of this administration are not rebuilding our economy or getting Americans back to work. Washington must get serious about advancing pro-growth policies that encourage small business owners to hire and invest, and passing a balanced federal budget that tackles out-of-control government spending and our soaring national debt."
