Crawford Statement on June Unemployment Report

Congressman Rick Crawford (R-Ark.) today released the following statement regarding the June unemployment report released by the U.S. Department of Labor:

 “Under the Obama Administration, the unemployment rate continues to rise reaching 9.2 percent for the month of June. It is impossible to expect anything other than a climbing unemployment rate when the president and the United States Senate refuse to take tangible steps to get Americans back to work.  While the president talks about raising taxes and the Senate refuses to pass any legislation, small businesses are constantly attacked with burdensome regulations from the federal government and gas prices continue to skyrocket. We need to get the government out of the way so Americans can get back to work.”
