Henrico, VA – Today George Allen released the following statement in response to the Department of Labor’s unemployment report for October showing the unemployment rate worsening to 7.9 percent:Over 20 million Americans still unemployed or underemployed.
“This jobs report is a reminder of the Obama/Kaine policies that have diminished job opportunities for Americans. The American people deserve much better opportunities,” said George Allen. “As Democrats’ national party chairman, Tim Kaine supported the policies that have left us deeper in debt, with a bigger government and over 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed. Now another 200,000 jobs are threatened because of the debt deal Tim Kaine said was the ‘right thing to do.’
“While my opponent has tried to talk about everything but jobs, my campaign has been based on a pro-jobs growth plan, my Blueprint for America’s Comeback. We can create over 500,000 new jobs a year with a more simple, fair and competitive tax code, reasonable regulations, and unleashed American energy resources and empowering education policies. I will stand for Virginia jobs by stopping these devastating defense cuts. I want to be Virginians’ voice in the U.S. Senate because I know my job is to fight for their jobs.”
Last time I looked, Tim Kaine's one and only initiative was to improve education.
Like schooling those 20 million Americans will somehow produce jobs.
We need employers, not diplomas.
