Statement from Rep. Fattah: We’ve Finally Erased Bush Job Losses

May 4, 2012

WASHINGTON, May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), senior Democratic appropriator for the Commerce Department on the House Appropriations Committee, issues this statement on today’s monthly jobs report:

“Our nation reached a job-growth milestone today. With the 26th consecutive month of private sector job growth, our nation’s economy has finally created more jobs in the Obama years than were lost during the Bush Administration. Our recovery continues, although it needs to speed up. But the bottom line is that, with the jobless rate down a full point in less than a year, and with President Obama’s policies fully erasing the Bush-era losses, we are turning the corner toward recovery.”
