WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:

“Unemployment remaining unchanged at 9.5 percent and the loss of over 130,000 jobs once again confirms that President Obama’s economic policies have failed to create sustainable job growth. For the millions of Americans who are unable to find work, this White House’s empty cheerleading rings hollow. President Obama has been more focused on growing government than growing jobs, and it shows. The cumulative effect of his $2.5 trillion health care takeover, his overreaching financial regulatory bill, and his looming small business tax hike has created a climate of uncertainty that has left employers unable to expand their payrolls. If persistently high unemployment, crushing debt, and a continued assault on the private economy is the ‘recovery’ President Obama is welcoming the American people to, Congressional Democrats will be the ones getting a pink slip in November.”
