DNC on January Jobs Report
February 4, 2022
|DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the January jobs report:|
“Today’s jobs report makes it clear: President Biden’s economic plan is working. The economy is booming, and continues to exceed expectations. Thanks to the work of Democrats who passed the American Rescue Plan, got more than 200 million Americans vaccinated, and tackled supply chain bottlenecks, the economy has created a record over 6.6 million jobs in 12 months, and 2021 was the greatest year of job creation under any president in history. While Republican lawmakers do everything they can to prolong the pandemic, the Biden-Harris administration is rolling up its sleeves and putting in the work to put this pandemic behind us.
“Every Republican who voted against the American Rescue Plan, and has stood in the way of progress for the American people, will have to explain to their constituents why they root against them having a job, work against the economic recovery, and why they have no plan to address the issues families face. There is a lot to celebrate in this report, but there is still more work to be done, and President Biden and Democrats will get right back to work delivering for the American people.”
