Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Department of Labor issued its August jobs report:

"The August jobs report offers little comfort in an economy faltering under the Trump Administration’s reckless agenda to undermine the health, financial security and well-being of the American people.

“Uncertainty is surging, farmers are struggling and families across the nation are facing rising costs of living as the GOP’s special interest giveaways continue to hollow out the economy.  Instead of working to lower health costs, the President and Republicans continue their cruel battle in the courts to strike down protections for people with pre-existing conditions and every other benefit and protection of the Affordable Care Act. 

“House Democrats are fighting For The People, to lower health costs, increase paychecks and clean up corruption in Washington.  While the Administration furthers their outrageous special interest agenda, House Democrats are hard at work to build an economy that works for every American.”
