Southerland Remarks on April Jobs Report

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, II issued the following statement today in response to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' April jobs report, which showed unemployment at 7.5 percent nationally:

"The fact that the Obama administration and some in the Beltway media are touting 7.5 percent unemployment as a welcome surprise shows just how low expectations have become the last four years. We have a long way to go in rebuilding our economy and restoring certainty in the marketplace. That's why I joined my House colleagues in advancing a plan that balances the budget in 10 years, reduces Washington spending by $4.6 trillion and draws the line on tax increases. If we want to make measureable progress in reducing unemployment, we need the White House and Senate to stop picking winners and losers and start empowering job creators and hardworking families."
