Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement after the Department of Labor released its unemployment report for November 2013.
“While this is a statistical improvement, it is a sad commentary on our economy that a seven percent unemployment rate is looked at as good news. For families in Michigan, it simply isn’t good enough. Washington has spent too much time bickering and tinkering around with policies that don’t move the needle. We need to more aggressively pursue the kinds of policies that can unleash true economic growth – like tax reform and opening new markets in which to sell American made goods and services.”
