Speaker Boehner: New Jobs Report Shows Need to Enact GOP Jobs & Growth Plan

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today released the following statement regarding the latest unemployment figures released by the U.S. Department of Labor:

“Our economy is not creating enough jobs, and Democrats’ binge of taxing, spending, borrowing and over-regulating is a big part of the reason why. This week House Republicans met with President Obama and urged him to change course and work with us to enact the plan for jobs and economic growth we have put forth. We hope the president will take us up on that invitation. We cannot solve our debt crisis without economic growth -- and we will not have economic growth if we raise taxes on job creators and refuse to stop spending money we don't have.”
