Latham: Americans Are Demanding A New Approach

Iowa Congressman Tom Latham issued the following statement on Friday after the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the national unemployment rate increased to 9.6 percent in the month of August:

“The August unemployment figures show that the economic policies of the White House and the Democrat majorities in Congress have failed to put the economy back on track.  Americans are demanding a new approach that removes uncertainty for families and empowers small businesses to create jobs and invest in our communities.

“Small businesses are frozen in place right now because of federal economic policies that spend, tax and borrow too much.  Instead, Congress needs to enact fast-acting tax relief for families and job creators and provide them with a sense of stability. Washington has to get serious about fiscal responsibility for a long-term economic recovery to take root.”
