Reid Statement On July Jobs Report
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ^ | August 3, 2012 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 08/03/2012 3:27:07 PM PDT by mdittmar

Washington, DC–Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released the following statement after the Department of Labor announced its employment report for the month of July. The U.S. economy added 163,000 jobs in July, including 172,000 private sector jobs and 25,000 manufacturing jobs

“In Nevada and across America there are still far too many Americans looking for work. But we have now seen 27 straight months of private sector job growth, along with encouraging progress in critical sectors such as manufacturing. Our economy is recovering, but recovering slowly.

“The main obstacle standing in the way of a stronger economic recovery is the unprecedented, politically-motivated obstruction from Republicans in Congress. My counterpart, Senator McConnell, announced that his ‘single most important’ goal was defeating President Obama. Republicans have followed his lead, blocking bill after bill that would create jobs and help middle-class families, often without even bothering to pretend they disagree with the bipartisan, common-sense policies they are obstructing.

“The best thing we can do to spur on our recovery is to protect middle-class families from the fiscal cliff. Last week, the Senate passed a bill that would prevent middle-class families’ taxes from rising on January 1. Sadly, House Republicans are holding these middle-class tax cuts hostage, demanding additional tax cuts for the top two percent of taxpayers.

“Instead of spending all of their energy trying to defeat President Obama, I hope my Republican colleagues will listen to their constituents, drop their obstruction, and start working with Democrats. Middle-class Americans expect us to put politics aside and do the right thing for our economy, and they deserve nothing less.”

I remember all those years when Demcrats stopped trying to defeat Reagan and Bush I and II and dropped their ‘obstruction’ of these Republican president’s policies.

Was 8.2. Today it's 8.3. The left and it's Pravda media say this is really "good".

Imagine, if Oboma could just get another 4 years and drive it up to, say, 25% unemployment or more, we could all have a celebration. It would be over three times as "good."

Go Team Oboma. Yay! (/s)

Hey a bit off topic..BUT I received a phone tip that Harry dresses in his wife’s clothing at night and he just loves to wear her spike heels.

Hey Harry how about a budget?

I can understand how they got here, but it begs the question what types of jobs did we loose to accomplish this?

Since when is a manufacturing job not a private sector job?

The words are "some of which were", NOT "and".

Second time I have seen the statement "the top two percent of taxpayers"

What the hell happened to "the top one percent of taxpayers" quote?

Must be like global warming and climate change.

Dirty Harry Reid: The Mafia's "Mr. Clean Face" on the Nevada Gaming Commission

Reid is so mobbed up that he's a walking, talking blackmail machine. Axlerod and Rhambo could order him to walk naked down Pennsylvania Ave and he would do so instantly. Read Freeper Fedora's excellent investigative thread to understand this human slimeball, and why he is willing to humiliate himself: he as NO CHOICE.

What Romney and the GOP need to hammer and hammer hard is that this Administration’s has the WORST record of recovery since records have been kept. Their policies have been EPIC FAIL especially against an expenditure of Trillion$+ per year! Four years of fail is ample reason to say “Get thee GONE!”

Wait until next year, when the rest of the Bush tax cuts run out - 2 is gonna shoot up to 100 instantly.

Not too long ago Obama was proposing making the 'middle class' part of the temp tax cuts permanent - now he's offering a single year extension like he's doing us a big favor.

That should be a big red flag.

In 2008, there were 3 to 4 times as many jobs being created.

It was the worst economy since the depression.

Fast forward to 2012...it’s just a slow recovery.

Democrats should never be allowed near political office...ever!

Consider: Nevada's U-6 rate is 22.1 percent, up from just 7.6 percent in 2007. Economically troubled California has a 20.3 percent real rate, while Rhode Island is at 18.3 percent, more than double its 8.3 percent rate in 2007.

Those numbers compare especially unfavorably to the national rate, high in itself at 14.9 percent though off its record peak of 17.2 percent in October 2009.

It's called negotiating, Harry. Congressional Democrats don't want to negotiate. That's the problem.

Reid, you have lost your mind.

You refuse to even look at the many Republican economic bills because YOU are the partisan a-whole. BTW, where is the Senate budget after some 3 years?

Harry, I heard that you bugger young boys. Can you prove you don't?

Dingy Harry...now, where’s that Senate budget you are supposed to pass each year? But have now held up for THREE YEARS due to pure political motivation on your part?

And how about the over 30 bills the House has sent you in the last few months that you have not so much as allowed a single vote on?

And you have to audacity to talk about someone obstructing Congress?

Sorry, Dingy, the country is on to you, and as the Gladiator said in the movie, “soon...soon.”
