DNC on March Jobs Report

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the March jobs report:

“Today’s job report is the latest reminder that President Biden’s economic agenda is working. A record eleven straight months of job gains above 400,000, a pandemic-era low unemployment rate, and nearly eight million jobs created since the president took office. Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, delivered by President Biden and Democrats alone, our nation is experiencing a historic economic recovery.

“The contrast couldn’t be more clear – while Democrats deliver real results and record job numbers for the American people, the Republican Party is rooting against our country’s economic growth and working to block progress at every turn. Every single Republican voted against the American Rescue Plan last year, and just last night, nearly every House Republican voted against capping insulin costs. Now, Republicans are rallying around an agenda to raise taxes on half of Americans, make health care more expensive, gut preexisting condition protections, and do nothing to lower prescription drug prices. Every day between now and November, Republicans will have to answer for their reckless agenda that would hurt hardworking families and undermine our economic recovery.”
