Gardner Comments on Latest Unemployment Report

Washington, DC - Congressman Cory Gardner (CO-4) released the following statement today on the August 2013 unemployment report:

“Today’s unemployment numbers are nothing short of depressing for the millions of Americans still looking for work. If the labor force participation rate were at the same level as when President Obama took office, the unemployment rate would be over ten percent. Until we begin to embrace pro-growth economic policies by repealing Obamacare, utilizing our domestic energy resources, and getting rid of mindless government regulations, these numbers will remain stagnant. I stand ready and willing to work with any partners who are serious about getting Americans back to work.”
