Blunt: We Need Common-Sense Solutions That Encourage Job Growth

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement in response toPresident Barack Obama's visit to the Fordplant in Claycomo, Mo. today, where he continued his latest "pivot" to jobs andthe economy:

"I advocated for the expansionof the Claycomo Ford plant, and I'm glad to see these jobs come to Missouri.However, our country needs more than campaign-style speeches and 'pivots' fromthe president if we're going to jump-start private sector job creation,"said Blunt. "Five years in office, and four years after the recessionended, most American families and businesses are still struggling thanks tothis administration's failed economic policies. We need to work together topass common-sense solutions that encourage job growth – starting with thepermanent delay of ObamaCare and more American energy."

The August jobs report shows more than 300,000 Americans either stopped workingor stopped searching for jobs. The labor force participation rate dropped to63.2 percent, the lowestrate seen since Jimmy Carter was president in 1978. According to a recent Galluppoll, Americans continue to say theeconomy is the biggest problem facing the country.

During his latest pivot back to the economy,President Obama recently saidthat "there's no serious evidence [ObamaCare]… is holding back economic growth."

Meanwhile, more than 250employers have cut jobs or slashed hours as a direct result of ObamaCare'shigh costs and job-killing regulations. And a recent survey from the U.S.Chamber of Commerce shows71percent of small businesses say ObamaCare makes it harder to hire moreworkers.
