Opening the Economy = Job Gains

Time for Congress to end ‘trillion dollar splurges’

Fairfax, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in reaction to the March unemployment figures released from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“If Congress needed any more proof that the 91 percent of the recently passed $1.9 trillion spending bill that did not deal with health care needs should be pared back with all money not already spent rescinded, today’s employment report ends any argument.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys taken in mid-March show what any sentient person already knew, continued opening of the economy produces massive job gains.

“This confirms, once again, that this is nothing more than a continuation of the Trump recovery with the major gains directly attributable to the former president’s push to re-open the economy.  The emergency is over, and the spending-drunk Democrat Congress needs to stop throwing around trillion dollar splurges and begin budgeting again.”

From the BLS report:

“Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 916,000 in March, and the unemployment rate edged down to 6.0 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. These improvements in the labor market reflect the continued resumption of economic activity that had been curtailed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Job growth was widespread in March, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, public and private education, and construction.”
