Levin Statement on Jobs Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today issued the following statement on the release of the final monthly job numbers for 2017.

“As a candidate, President Trump did everything he could to trash President Obama’s economic record.  But now he touts slightly worse jobs numbers under his Administration as a tremendous success.    

The truth is President Obama and Democrats in Congress helped steer our economy away from the worst recession since the Great Depression and toward 75 consecutive months of job growth.   We should be building on that progress by building the middle class, not the bank accounts of the very wealthy as the recent tax bill did.”

“the country’s a disaster”                  “starting to do really well”

“don’t believe those phony               “jobs are roaring back”
