DNC Chair Rep. Wasserman Schultz Statement on Today’s Jobs Report
Washington, DC – DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on today’s jobs report:
“Today's strong jobs report is the latest proof that middle class economics works. Under President Obama, we have now experienced 60 straight months – five full years – of private sector job growth, and 12 straight months with more than 200,000 jobs added.
“Democrats are committed to ensuring that more Americans have the opportunity to share in our economic success. Access to affordable, quality health care, education, and child care, and the ability to save for retirement, are the cornerstones of a middle class life. Today, that American Dream is within reach for more Americans than when President Obama took office six years ago.
“Despite our success, Republicans want to bring back the same old trickle-down policies which contributed to the economic crisis in the first place. The GOP's potential 2016 presidential candidates have advocated for a return to the policies that have failed time and time again. Five straight years of private sector job growth suggest that our economy works best when we build it from the middle out, rather than from the top down.”
