Jobs report indicates economy continues to sputter

Aug. 3, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today responded to the Department of Labor’s unemployment report for July:

“The economic bad news of Obama’s failed economic plan keeps cascading down on the American people.  Today’s unemployment rate of 8.3 percent is shocking in that it is not higher.  With the nation’s economy staggering as it only grows by .125 percent each month, factory orders down in June for the second month in a row, and only 58.4 percent of the working-age population in the labor force, it is clear the American people are suffering.  Yet, Obama continues a campaign against the very job creators who our nation needs to ramp up hiring to lift our nation back to the heights we used to take for granted.

“It is incredible that after a ‘recovery’ that Obama says has worked, we still have an unemployment rate of 8.3 percent.  I’d hate to see what this president would consider a failure.”
