FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 2, 2011
CONTACT: Richard Cullen

WASHINGTON (DC) Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ-03) released the following statement Friday after the Department of Labor released its August unemployment report:

“Today’s report continues the disturbing trend of unacceptable employment figures. Couple it with the White House’s mid-session budget estimate of 9% unemployment through 2012, and we get a grim picture of our economic future. It is evident that the further government encroaches on the private sector, the further the private sector retreats.

“Washington is not good at creating jobs, it’s only good at destroying them. We must reduce the regulatory burdens on the private sector so our innovators and job creators can expand, invest and hire.”



  1. Conservative American says

    No. Reducing regulatory burdens will not directly or immdediately create jobs for American citizens. That’s more faith in “trickle down” which warrants no faith at all. Stop beating around the bush and take action which can directly and immediately result in employment for American citizens. What would those actions be?

    1 – Take back the jobs currently being sucked up by illegal aliens, making those jobs immediately available to U. S. citizens, including Hispanic U. S. citizens.

    2 – Stop issuing work premits to foreign nationals until unemployment among American citizens is reduced to acceptable levels.

    3 – Rescind work permits issued to foreign nationals and illegal aliens until unemployment among American citizens is reduced to acceptable levels.

    4 – Make it unprofitable for companies to outsource jobs until unemployment among American citzens is reduced to acceptable levels.

    Do you have a problem with those suggestions, Congressman Quayle. If so, what are your objections?

    The simple fact of the matter is that taking back jobs which should belong to American citizens is an infinitely faster remedy than the slow and uncertain “trickle down” approach. “Trickle down” is both antiquated and a proven failure. You and your fellow congressional Republicans had better come up with something much more potent and effective if you hope to prevail in 2012. We want tangible outcomes, not more rhetoric about “trickle down”.
