Alexander: Jobs Report is the “Result of 3 ½ Years of Bad Policies That Have Made a Struggling Economy Worse”

Posted on June 1, 2012

MARYVILLE – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the May jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics this morning:

"Today's disappointing economic report is the result of 3 ½ years of bad policies, which have made a struggling economy worse: government takeovers, unrealistic regulations, out-of-control spending, and threats of tax increases on job creators. This is the Obama economy, and it shouldn't be good enough for any American regardless of party. We can do better.”
