McCOTTER: Pres. Obama's big gov't crushing U.S. economy

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Thaddeus G. McCotter (MI) released the following statement today regarding May unemployment numbers:

“Today's jobs report and this week's anemic economic indicators once again prove that the President's policies aren't working - and neither are Americans. 

“Fortunately, Americans reject the Obama Administration's ‘new normal’ of 9.1% unemployment, declining home values, diminished health care choices, sky high gas prices and looming tax hikes. The people know our economy can't grow while crushed beneath President Obama's big government.

“Instead, families across our nation deserve and demand sound, sensible solutions that free our nation's entrepreneurial genius and industriousness to get back to an America that works - a nation where our prosperity grows and we show the world what a free people can achieve.”
