On Economic Tour, Administration Should Listen to Families -- Job
Losses are Taking a Real Toll
D.C. -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following
statement today regarding the Bush Administrations so-called
Jobs and Growth tour stops in Wisconsin and Minnesota:
"Its difficult to understand why the Bush Administration
is promoting the Presidents mishandling of the economy. Since
the President took office, three million jobs have been lost and
a projected $3 trillion will be added to the national debt.
million people in this country who are out of work and cant
find a job are not being helped by an economic plan that gives enormous
tax breaks to those who need them least. And neither are the working
and military families of 12 million children who did not get the
expanded child tax credit other families are receiving, nor the
record number of homeowners faced with losing their homes.
Bush and his Administration travel the country, they should really
listen to what everyday Americans are saying. They will hear that
the Republicans reckless and irresponsible economic policies
are not working and must be set aside. They will hear that it is
time to get to work for all Americans, not just the elite few. And
they will hear that people are genuinely concerned about their economic
stability and the future of their families.
are taking a real toll on the financial security of American families.
Democrats are fighting for opportunity, jobs, and economic security
for everyday working families. Mr. President, its time to
join our fight."
