Rep. Rice (SC-07) released the following statement today in regards to latest unemployment report from the Department of Labor:
"Today's jobs report revealed a sharp decline workforce participation, further evidence that the President's policies are hurting middle class families, not helping them. At a time when millions of hardworking Americans -- veterans, recent college graduates, parents, and single mothers--are unemployed or have given up on finding work all together, the President must not give up on them. He must eliminate his Administration's job-killing regulations, rein in his overzealous EPA, and present a fiscally responsible budget plan that does not spend more than it takes in.
"As a representative of an area plagued with some of the highest unemployment rates in the state, it is a priority of mine to create more jobs and opportunity. I will continue to support legislation that eliminates onerous regulations, restores certainty in the market place, and reforms our tax code so we can achieve a real recovery and get people back to work."
