Statement from Rep. Fattah: Even the Superstorm Can't Slow the Obama Economic Recovery


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA-02), the lead Democratic Appropriator for the Department of Commerce, issues this statement upon release of today's national employment report:

"Even Superstorm Sandy couldn't slow the nation's economic recovery under the policies of President Obama. Today's unemployment report is surprising the pundits with its strong numbers -- 146,000 more Americans going to work every day, an unemployment rate of 7.7 percent that's the lowest since the President took office.

"Today marks the 33rd consecutive month of private sector job growth. The data tells a positive story about real people, and underscores what Americans already know: While work remains to be done, our economy continues to heal and improve."
