Rick Santorum Comments on June Jobs Report

Verona, PA - Patriot Voices chairman and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum issued the following statement regarding today's job numbers:

"Today's jobs report is yet another reminder of the disaster that is Obamanomics. These numbers are abysmal and sadly reaffirm that our economy continues to suffer and American families are struggling. 

"Under President Obama's economic and regulatory policies, the unemployment remains over 8 percent, poverty rates are at historic and tragic highs with 1 in 6 Americans living in poverty, and 1 in 4 children receiving food stamps.

"Our manufacturing sector also continues to decline under this president. For the second quarter in a row, manufacturers continue to be less optimistic about growth due to increased uncertainty.

"If we are serious about addressing poverty in this country then we must support policies that create an environment for work, marriage and family, quality education, access to capital, and civil society to prosper. This is how we help the unemployed in America; not through Big Government but through expanded opportunity and bold leadership."
