SACRAMENTO, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today issued the following statement in response to news that the nation lost 85,000 jobs in December:
“Today’s news of another 85,000 jobs lost across the nation in December is just further confirmation that the current strategy in Washington of tax, spend and borrow is doing nothing to create jobs and stimulate the economy. Yet Barbara Boxer and her colleagues continue to slow economic recovery by forcing through legislation that kills jobs and raises taxes on the middle class.
“Now, more than ever, we must keep a laser focus on job creation and on supporting our nation’s job creators. In order to jumpstart our economy and put Americans back to work, we must begin by reducing the regulatory barriers entrepreneurs face, lower the tax burden and increase access to capital so that our nation’s true economic engines, small businesses and family-owned businesses, can grow and thrive.”
