Washington, D.C. – Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement regarding the Department of Labor’s June unemployment report:
“It’s been well over 3 years since President Obama was sworn in promising to get the economy moving again. Instead, the economy is not recovering as it should – and his policies are to blame. The ‘stimulus,’ Dodd-Frank, Obamacare, excessive regulations, and $5 trillion in added debt are stifling business expansion and strangling job creation. His failed experiment has gone on far too long.
“The evidence clearly shows that our economy has stagnated, but President Obama continues to ignore the facts - claiming the private sector is doing fine. America must take a different path. We need new leadership committed to encouraging long-term, self-sustaining job creation in the private sector."
