Pelosi Statement on October Jobs Report
San Francisco — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement after the Department of Labor issued its October jobs report:
“October’s jobs report has some positive news, but hard-working families across America find themselves on shakier ground than ever.
“Republicans’ war on health care has needlessly raised costs, enabled prescription drug prices to continue to soar, and threatened to destroy protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent are raking in their deficit-exploding GOP tax scam windfalls, while Republican leaders renew their call to slash Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security for our seniors.
“The GOP Congress is hollowing out the future of the middle class to enrich the special interests. Democrats are For The People: lower health costs and prescription drug prices, raise wages with strong economic growth by rebuilding America, and clean up corruption to make Washington work for all Americans.”
