Searchlight, NV- Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement after Nevadas unemployment rate decreased from 11.8 percent to 11.5 percent in October:
The continued reduction in Nevadas unemployment rate is promising. Nevadans are getting back to work, but small businesses in our state still need opportunities to expand and hire new workers. We must do more to ensure Nevadas middle class is made stronger.
Nevadans and Americans across the country agree that we can strengthen the middle class by adopting a balanced fiscal policy that requires millionaires and billionaires to pay a little more. In July, the Senate passed a bill to cut taxes for the 98% of Americans and 97% of small businesses making less than $250,000. House Republicans should stop trying to protect the wealthiest Americans from contributing their fair share and pass this bill immediately. Middle class Americans will have more opportunities to succeed when we level the playing field and make tax policy fairer.
Yea let's listen to harry,not!
Hey, Dingy: maybe they are not getting back to work - maybe they are leaving. Either one can lower the percentage...
Wat untilthe news of the election hits them Harry. Next month may not go so well,although I doubt we will get accurate figures.
this guy is a curse
I may be old and blond, but it seems to me if a company has to pay more taxes they will have less money to spend on hiring new people. And why hire? People are traveling and buying less which means fewer customers. Harry is in desperate need of a brain transplant. It just blows my mind how dense some people are.
It is almost hopeless trying to reason with people in a state with 11.8 percent unemployment that still voted for Obama.
Reid: “In July, the Senate passed a bill to cut taxes for the 98% of Americans and 97% of small businesses making less than $250,000.”
Really? Or, did they pass a bill that would allow the current rates remain in effect? Big difference.
Is he still around. He must be 100 years old :)
Mr. Liar, pants on fire.
Where are the jobs harry?,where did those billions go?
Here’s a drink to the staffer that had to write this tripe!
Yeah, and back to 11.8 percent or higher when all those “Santa Claus” employees are out of work after December 25th.
Yucca mountain would have added lots of jobs, but........
And old Harry ended his speech the same way he ends all of his speeches.
“And tell your damn kids to stay off my lawn!”
Harry said Mr Romney was not the face of the mormon church. Thanks Harry for letting us know who the ass of the church is. Morons...when Mr Obama gets through with this years tax plan Vegas will be Detroited out of existence.
The Mob was hiring a bunch of GOTV folks for the election and it will probably bounce back to 11.8% now since they’re not needed anymore.
What an idiot.
Harry is about the only one who can come close to out-stupiding Slow Joe!
The Greedy Senate should cut thier pay in half and pay for thier own healthcare, meals and travel.
Nationalize the casino industry. What say you comrade Harry?
