Levin Statement on Jobs Report
“Today’s jobs report shows the need for Congress to act on legislation to help job growth. Time and time again on issue after issue, the rigid ideological agenda of congressional Republicans has stood in the way of pro-growth policies, whether they involve long-overdue transportation and infrastructure legislation or the to-do list that President Obama recently laid out to give businesses a direct incentive to invest and hire here in the United States.
“For 27 straight months the private sector has added jobs – a significant achievement considering the dire situation our nation faced just a few years ago. Clearly there is much more work to do, and it is time for Republicans to stop rooting against our recovery and join the effort to put our economy on a firmer footing.”
