McMorris Rodgers Statement on Latest Unemployment Report

Spokane – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the Labor Department issued a new report showing the economy lost 95,000 jobs last month:

“After months of broken promises, the American people are once again asking President Obama and Speaker Pelosi, ‘Where are the Jobs?’ Today’s unemployment numbers are another reminder of the tough economic situation facing Eastern Washington and the country. After 14 consecutive months of the unemployment rate being stuck above 9.5 percent, it is painfully clear that our families and small businesses are bearing the burden of this Administration’s failed economic policies. It’s time for a new direction.  I’ve taken the ‘Pledge to America,’ which – if enacted – would create jobs, revitalize our economy, and put our fiscal house in order.”
