WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the May jobs report:
“Today’s extremely troubling jobs report proves yet again that President Obama’s policies simply are not working and that he has failed to live up to the promise of his presidency. In early 2009, he promised to fix the economy in three years, and he promised the unemployment rate would be below six percent by now,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
“Now President Obama is running away from his own words, attempting to distract voters by attacking free enterprise. This same hostility toward the private sector is the very reason our economy remains unacceptably weak.
“As President Obama jets off to multiple campaign fundraisers today, families across America are still struggling just to make ends meet. The president is desperate to win a second term, but for most Americans, his first term has been unbearable.
“If elected president, Governor Romney will end President Obama’s job-killing policies. Unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney actually has the experience and the know-how to get our country moving, finally, in the right direction.”
