WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement in response to the June jobs report.
I’m glad to hear more Americans found jobs last month. But there’s still a lot we can do to create more opportunity in this country. Our tax code is a huge drag on our economy. And we’ve got to reform our safety net so more people can move from welfare to work. This report shows wages are not growing the way they should, and too many people are still on the sidelines. That’s why the Ways and Means Committee will continue to pursue real reforms that will help move America forward.
