Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tn.) on Friday released the following statement on the May jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Fridat morning, which found the unemployment rate increased for the first time in nearly a year:
"Today's disappointing economic report is the result of 3½ years of bad policies, which have made a struggling economy worse: government takeovers, unrealistic regulations, out-of-control spending, and threats of tax increases on job creators.
This is the Obama economy, and it shouldn't be good enough for any American regardless of party. We can do better.”
