REID STATEMENT ON JULY UNEMPLOYMENT RATE
Washington, D.C. - Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement after Nevada's unemployment increased to 12% percent in July:
"I am disappointed that after nearly a year of steady decline, Nevada's unemployment rate has increased. We must not relent until our state is back on track and all hard-working Nevadans who want jobs have one. Democrats have been working hard to pass commonsense measures that will strengthen America's small businesses and expand the middle class. However, my Republican colleagues consistently refuse to work with us to secure our nation's long-term recovery. Earlier this month, the Senate passed a bill that would prevent middle-class families' and 98 percent of Americans' taxes from rising in January, but unfortunately Republicans instead decided to demand additional tax cuts for America's wealthiest individuals. Our focus should be on protecting and strengthening the Nevada's middle class, not imposing additional challenges that will inhibit our state's potential. I will continue to protect Nevada's middle class and work to pass measures that create jobs in our state. The Senate will soon vote on the Veterans Jobs Corps Act which will help create jobs for Nevada servicemen and women and enable them to put their sought-after professional skills into action. I hope my Republican colleagues put politics aside and join Democrats in this effort."
Harry has been Majority leader for a few years now and it’s still all the Republicans fault. He and Obama are on the same track , that’s for sure, its always someone elses fault.
Those who want one(job) have one, didn’t realize it was an option
if harry works any harder, the unemployment rate will reach 20% there...
The best thing you can do for your state, Reidslime, is to assume room temperature.
Since you’re not too far from it now, it shouldn’t be hard.
Do it now.
Their talking points are we our digging out of the hole Bush left?
I fall into a hole I climb out never though digging it deeper would do any good.
“Earlier this month, the Senate passed a bill that would prevent middle-class families’ and 98 percent of Americans’ taxes from rising in January,”
So he admits that the Rats LIED that the Bush tax cuts were for the rich. Democrats LIED and the nation died.
Since welfare and unemployment grow the economy, per the progressives, Harry and Nancy need to get those figures up quickly before we slide into an unplanned real recovery with jobs.
When Democratic leaders in the Senate and House who represent "red" states or districts run for re-election at home, they leave the "@sshole" version of their personality that we all know well back in Washington.
What a pitiful little man
Evil, satanic SOB should be in jail with the big soap bar big boys pestering him to drop his soap.
Nevada is a SEIU State
I'm thinking at this point folks in Nevada would wish Harry would relent and GTFO.
Off topic ping.
Pass a budget. The House has submitted several. You won’t allow a vote.
Reid is such a slime.
