With last week’s lackluster jobs report, Senate Democrats are seeing the widespread, negative impact of their reckless tax-and-spend policies. Adding only 194,000 jobs, – rather than the expected 500,000 – the September jobs report turned out to be the “worst of the year.”
“194,000 net new jobs added. Way less, way less than anybody expected and less than last month and the worst of the year.”
Democrats inherited a strengthening economy, but their inflation-inducing spending and job-killing tax hikes have absolutely squandered any economic growth, leaving hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. One might think now is the time for vulnerable Senate Democrats like Catherine Cortez Masto, Maggie Hassan, Raphael Warnock, Mark Kelly, and Michael Bennet to put a stop to their party’s socialist policies. But these fake moderates are silently following Bernie Sanders’s lead.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Katharine Cooksey: “Socialism doesn’t work, just take a look at today’s abysmal jobs report. Inflation-inducing spending and the threat of job-killing tax hikes do nothing to create opportunity for U.S. workers, families, and job creators. Senate Democrats are too hyper-focused on rushing through their radical, far-Left agenda to notice the cliff they’re pushing the country off of.”
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the September jobs report:
“Joe Biden’s Build Back Broke agenda continues to hurt American workers, drive up the cost of everyday goods, and crush small businesses. The latest jobs report, creating 300,000 fewer jobs than expected, proves that trillions more in reckless spending and higher taxes will only further squander the economic recovery and leave working families behind. Americans cannot afford Biden’s disastrous Build Back Broke agenda.”
The economy added just 194,000 jobs in September, less than half the jobs economists had predicted.
This is the second month in a row the economy has added far fewer jobs than expected.
Women lost 26,000 jobs in September.
The labor force participation rate fell in September even though this is a time when millions of Americans want to return to work.
While Biden is failing to create jobs, Republican-led states are leading the economic recovery.
16 of the top 20 states for recovering jobs from the pandemic are led by Republican governors.
