Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the November jobs numbers announced today:
"Today's unemployment numbers, while encouraging, simply underscore the urgency for Congress to address the top issue facing American families - jobs.
"At a time when 13 million Americans are out of work, Congress missed a tremendous opportunity to take up job creation last month when the Super Committee failed to reach an agreement. However, Congress can still act to address jobs. From extending the payroll tax break for middle-class families to getting to work on rebuilding our roads and bridges, there are dozens of job creation proposals that should have broad, bipartisan support.
"It's time to stop the partisan fighting and get to work for all Americans."
