"“Today’s weak unemployment report which showed that we created just 114,000 jobs is another sign that the President’s policies aren’t working. When the President passed his nearly trillion dollar stimulus bill in 2009 he promised that the unemployment rate would be around 5.5 percent this month but we are still at a high rate of 7.8 percent. I agree with what Vice President Joe Biden recently said when he stated that the middle class was “buried” over the past four years.”

“That is why the House voted to stop President Obama’s tax hike proposal on small business owners and the middle class, which would destroy over 700,000 jobs. We need the President and the Senate to work with House Republicans instead of continuing to promote job-destroying policies that the American people can no longer afford.”"


Couple of points:

1) Neither you nor Harris can back up that bogus claim of 5.5% by this month.

2) It's pretty hilarious that on one hand Regressives celebrate blocking Obama's legislation and on the other hand say his legislation hasn't produced results.

3) The GOP has clearly turned the term "small business owner" into its own brand knowing that most voters think of the local ice cream shop, dry cleaners and such -- and not know the term also applies to the likes of Bechtel and PWC. Which of those do you think would feel the pain of those taxes and send lobbyists to Congress with paper and cash to stop passage of the bill?
