Alexander: “President’s Agenda is a Big, Wet Blanket on the Economy”

Statement on August Jobs Report

Posted on September 2, 2011

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the Labor Department’s August jobs report, which showed no net job gains:

“The President’s agenda is a big, wet blanket on the economy. He’s made it worse. We know every American's job is on the line and we know what to do about it. We’re ready to work with the President to make it easier and cheaper to create private-sector jobs – with fewer regulations, more trade, lower tax rates. So, Mr. President, let’s start by your sending us the three trade agreements sitting on your desk so farmers and manufacturers can sell overseas what we grow and make in the United States.”
