Washington D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) responded to the disappointing September jobs report with the following statement:
“President Biden’s delusions have suggested for months his economic plan is ‘working.’ Anyone that saw today’s jobs report, or spends any time in the real world, knows it is failing.
“The misguided policies of Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats have turned what should have been an economic resurgence coming out of the pandemic into an economic crisis. Americans are paying more for everyday goods. Small businesses continue to struggle because of the government-created labor shortage. And 80 percent of Americans are facing reduced income from proposed tax increases.
“Republicans know how to get America working because just two years ago our country was thriving. Instead, Democrats see today’s economic weakness as their opportunity to permanently change the country to help their political allies while eliminating opportunity for everyone else. This is socialism and Republicans will do everything in our power to stop it. Our country’s future depends on it.”
