Congressman Chuck Fleischmann commented on the May jobs report released by the U.S. Department of Labor today.
"Today's report showing an increase in the unemployment rate, and almost 75,000 fewer jobs being added than expected, is a clear indication that the "recovery' plan put into place by the Obama Administration, and Congressional Democrats, is not working. Month after month we continue to see beleaguered job growth at a pace that will not restore the jobs already lost during this Administration. When Republicans met with the President at the White House this week, we tried to explain the importance of a jobs plan based on free enterprise, lower taxes and less government intervention. The President's plan of more taxing, spending and borrowing is not working and will not work," Fleischmann said.
