WASHINGTON, DC – House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa released the following statement ontoday’s U.S. Department of Labor report that American job creators added 120,000 jobs to the economy in November:
“Today’s employment report underscores the job-creating potential of our economy, despite the increased burdens imposed by the Obama Administration. Far too many of our neighbors still cannot find jobs, far too many of our families are struggling to make ends meet and far too many of our small businesses are striving to stay afloat in a sea of Washington red tape and rising costs. Easing these government-imposed burdens is House Republicans’ number one priority, yet more than 20 job-supporting bills we have passed sit idle in a do-nothing Senate.
“Our workers and job creators deserve better from their government. That’s why House Republicans are listening to the real job-creation experts – small business owners and entrepreneurs across the country – via AmericanJobCreators.com. Their message is clear: give us a level playing field and economic certainty, and we will put America back to work one new job at a time. We will continue to do uphold our end of the bargain by crafting smarter regulations, combating the Obama Administration’s disturbing class-warfare rhetoric and delivering a stable economy in which local businesses can succeed, grow and hire.”
