Speaker Boehner: Too Many Are Still Out of Work, Government Has Too Much Debt

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement this morning in response to the latest unemployment report from the U.S. Department of Labor:

“Too many Americans are still out of work and Washington has too much debt. Our oversized and overspent federal government is a drag on economic growth and job creation, and has burdened every American with a $50,000 share of its debt, and rising. This is the year we need to work together to solve these problems. In the coming months, the House will pass real spending cuts, meaningful reforms of the entitlement programs that are driving us deeper into debt, and a fairer, cleaner tax code. These are the keys to unleashing robust job growth and securing a better future for our children.”
