Camp Statement on April Jobs Report

May 06, 2011

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement after the Department of Labor released the April jobs report:

“While today’s jobs numbers are a recognition that we are moving in the right direction, further progress requires us to focus on three specific goals — getting spending under control, eliminating the burdens the tax code imposes on families and employers, and enacting our long-pending trade agreements so American workers and businesses can better sell goods and services in the global economy.  The upcoming debt limit vote provides Washington with an opportunity to agree to real, significant spending cuts — including reforming our entitlement programs — that will show the American people we are serious about getting the country back on track.”
