Statement by ALG President Bill Wilson on the Bureau of Labor Statistics' jobless numbers

April 2nd, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement on the increase of U-6 unemployment from 16.8 to 16.9 percent in March 2010:

"It is unacceptable that 26 million Americans are either unemployed, underemployed or have flat given up on getting a job under this Administration's put-government-first economic policy.  You cannot disconnect Obama's regulatory, enforcement and taxation attack on the private business job creation machine as well as his fiscal irresponsibility that has led to stunning deficits from the increased misery of our nation's middle class."
