RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Statement on the August Unemployment Report

- September 7, 2012

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the August unemployment report:

“Just hours after President Obama asked America for a second term, we received a clear reminder that he has yet to keep his number one promise to fix the economy,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “The indisputable message of today’s job report: We’re not creating jobs fast enough, and we’re certainly not better off than we were four years ago.Time is up Mr. President.

“With his massive $831 billion stimulus, President Obama promised to keep unemployment below 8 percent and reduce it to roughly 5.5 percent by this month. Instead, we’ve endured 43 months of unemployment over 8 percent. Unemployment is even higher than when the president took office.

“President Obama has no new plans for a second term--just more spending and more taxes. If we don’t change course, we’ll only get more of the same. Mitt Romney is the only candidate with a five-part plan to create 12 million jobs and strengthen the middle class.

“The millions of Americans who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 are realizing it’s time to break up with this president. He promised hope and change but delivered division and despair. With Mitt Romney we can do better.”
