WASHINGTON, DC — House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) released the following statement in response to the September jobs report.
“This just isn’t good enough. Flat wages, weak job growth, and far too many people simply giving up. This recovery continues to disappoint, but we can’t accept it as the new normal. There are solutions: rewriting our broken tax code, expanding American exports through strong trade agreements, and reforming our safety net programs to help people move from welfare to work. The Obama economy has been a failure, and we have to get to work creating opportunity for the future.”
