Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-06) released the following statement regarding the latest unemployment numbers reported today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:
"Americans are suffering from President Obama's failed policies with no end in sight. Forty-two straight months of 8 percent unemployment is disheartening for the hardworking families struggling to pay their bills and put food on the table. From the rising cost of groceries to gas prices to healthcare, it is clear that life is becoming increasingly unaffordable for average Americans.
"The American people deserve better than continuing down the path of failure. By unleashing America's abundant energy resources, cutting taxes on job creators, and putting an end to job-killing regulations, we can create an explosion of new jobs and economic growth. I will continue to work tirelessly for these type of positive, pro-growth policies so we can help put the American people back to work."
