GOP Leaders’ Statement on August Jobs Report


House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“This morning’s dismal jobs report arrives on the heels of a historic milestone achieved earlier this week by President Obama and Washington Democrats – the national debt has now surpassed $16 trillion. From the President’s failed stimulus to the more than $1 trillion government takeover of our healthcare system, the President’s economic policies have failed miserably. Worse, these very same policies have put our nation $5.4 trillion deeper into debt in just under four years. This week marks the 43rd consecutive month of unemployment above 8 percent, and the President and Democrats all across the country believe the best path forward is to continue down the same unsustainable course we’re already on. It’s well past time for this Administration to scrap their failed policies and join with House Republicans to put America on a better path forward and get Americans back to work”... (READ MORE)

It's the classic question that sunk Jimmy Carter in 1980 when Ronald Reagan asked, "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

Like Reagan, presidential candidate Mitt Romney presented the issue to the American people... (READ MORE)

The President’s Failed Policies Push Debt Above $16 Trillion

President Obama talks the talk when it comes to dealing with our national debt. But talk is cheap. Unfortunately, the president’s failed policies are not.

On September 4, 2012, the national debt eclipsed $16 trillion for the first time in the history of our nation.

According to the Department of Treasury, our nations’ debt was $16,015,769,788,215.80 on September 4.

The national debt has increased by $5.38 trillion or 51 percent since President Obama took office.

The national debt did not reach $5.3 trillion until 1997, during President Clinton’s second term. It took President Obama just over 3 ½ years to rack up as much debt as 42 other American presidents combined... (READ MORE)
