Camp Statement on September Jobs Report

October 03, 2014

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement on the September jobs report.

“While the economy is creating jobs, the fact remains we are stuck in a Carter-like economy in which millions of Americans have simply given up.  For those lucky enough to be working, wages are flat and middle-class families are struggling to keep up with their bills.  The Administration must do more to strengthen this economy.  That includes getting the Democrat-controlled Senate to act on over 40 jobs bills the House has passed, as well as more aggressively pursuing job-creating trade deals and tax reform that can put more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans.”
