DNC Statement On Jobs Report Proves American Families Not Their Concern
The June Jobs report came out Friday and the numbers are better than economists predicted. To Trump supporters that is great news. To Democrats, it is anything but good. At least that’s the message conveyed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the DNC.
According to jobs report, the economy gained 213,000 jobs in June. That is significantly higher than the 170,000 that experts predicted. It’s also a sign that the alleged “trade war” is having little to no economic impact.
However, Democrats aren’t happy about the news and they trashed report before the ink even dried. In an official statement, DNC Chairman Tom Perez suggested more jobs are bad for American families.
“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families…” read part of the statement.
Similarly, Nancy Pelosi blasted the numbers while sounding alarm bells about healthcare costs and Trump’s tariffs. “June jobs numbers show what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty and an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent,” Pelosi said.
In addition, the DNC took a swipe at Trump over the recent Supreme Court decision against labor unions. “Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice…” the statement continued.
Naturally, the SCOTUS decision has absolutely nothing to do with the jobs report. But, it makes good headlines for liberal media and slams the president, so they went with it. Although, it wasn’t the best part of their illogical condemnation.
That part came when they asserted that Democrats can give American families a better life.
