RNC Statement on September Unemployment Report

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

“As President Obama travels to Copenhagen to bring the Summer Olympics to his hometown seven years from now, Americans back home are increasingly concerned they won’t have a job seven months from now as they see more and more of their neighbors and friends lose jobs today.  The president’s verbal gymnastics will not hide that fact that more than 263,000 Americans lost their jobs in the month of September alone and the national unemployment rate increased yet again to 9.8 percent.  The president said, ‘the measure of an economy is, is it producing jobs?’  Clearly it isn’t.  President Obama can either acknowledge that his economic experiments have failed and change course, or continue down this path and see even more Americans lose their jobs.”
