NHDP - Statement on January Jobs Report

Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the January jobs report showing the economy added private sector jobs for the 23rd straight month.


"Today's jobs report showing that the economy added 243,000 jobs in January is more confirmation that the swift action President Obama took to address the economic crisis is working.  While taking unprecedented steps to avoid another Great Depression, he began to lay a foundation for a stronger economy where such a collapse can never happen again. It's a blueprint based on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers and a renewal of the American values that made our nation's middle class the envy of the world - values like fairness and opportunity.   


"Mitt Romney and the Republicans in Washington don't share this vision.  They don't agree we should invest in our workers, our students or American industries like carmakers and clean energy. They don't agree that we should be rewarding companies only when they bring jobs back to America, not when they send them overseas. And just as baffling, Romney and the Republicans don't even admit that this reversal and recovery is happening."
