Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) issued the following statement upon release of the June jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“The numbers show the barest possible job growth in the month of June. There’s no way to sugar-coat it-- it will clearly take more work to fully restore the economy.

“Yet since Republicans regained the House majority, they haven’t offered a plan to create jobs—let alone pass a single direct job-creation bill. They seem far more focused on delaying financial reforms meant to prevent another crisis, preserving corporate tax breaks and ending Medicare as we know it while protecting the highest-income Americans from paying their fair share. It’s a recipe that should give middle class Americans pause.”
