Pete Sessions Statement on January Jobs Report

Today I released the following statement regarding the Department of Labor’s January jobs report:
Today’s weak jobs report reinforces the fact that the Administration's policies aren’t working for the American people. Just this week, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report detailing the negative effects of ObamaCare on our economy and confirmed what we have known all along – ObamaCare is America’s number one job killer and it must be fully repealed. Specifically, CBO projects that the law will push 2.5 million people out of the workforce while reducing hours and wages for those who still have jobs.
I believe that the people of Texas deserve better than an onerous, damaging law that inhibits economic growth. It is time for President Obama and Senate Democrats to work with House Republicans to put an end to ObamaCare and focus on real solutions to spur job growth and increase opportunities for all Americans.
