Oversight Chairman Issa Statement on Unemployment Report

Published: Sep 2, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) released the following statement on a federal unemployment report issued today:

“Today’s unemployment report echoes the sentiments of economic experts: until President Obama and Senate Democrats get serious about cutting spending, easing the regulatory and tax burden, and reducing the deficit, our economy will continue to struggle.

“When President Obama addresses Congress next week, he needs to set-aside the failed approach of the 2009 stimulus and instead embrace policies that will create tax certainty and enhance global competitiveness, promote domestic manufacturing and production of proven energy sources, and address existing and proposed regulations that are scaring employers away from hiring.

“These are proven steps we know will create sustainable private sector jobs that the President’s leadership could help achieve.”
