Disappointing Jobs Numbers Reflect Economic Reality No, Ann Kirkpatrick, This Won't Work In AZ01

Democrats Support Job-Crushing Tax Hikes Despite Job Numbers

Washington --- The national unemployment for the month of July was announced today at the disappointingly high rate of 8.3 percent. Despite this disappointing report, Kirkpatrick's party would rather support tax hikes on small businesses than help get the people of Arizona get back to work. As Americans’ confidence in the economy dwindles, will Kirkpatrick be a rubber-stamp for the big government policies her party claims have ‘worked’ over taking responsibility for the dismal state of the economy?
"Democrats want tax hikes, Americans want jobs,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."Kirkpatrick can continue supporting her party’s failed promises and burdensome taxes on small businesses in this weak economy, but a static unemployment rate above eight percent makes it blatantly obvious that no, Ann Kirkpatrick, this isn’t working.”

In July, the national unemployment rate remained unacceptably high at 8.3 percent. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 8/3/2012)

Fears of unemployment worsen as Democrats threaten to drive the economy into a recession unless they get their way:
"The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that, if the full range of tax increases and spending cuts were allowed to take effect--a scenario widely referred to as the fiscal cliff--a shallow recession would occur early next year...” (Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, Federal Reserve Web site, 7/17/2012)

Yet President Obama recently said at a campaign function that his big-government, job-crushing policies have ‘worked’:
"Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan -- and it worked. That’s the difference.” (“Remarks by the President at a Campaign Event,” The White House, 7/25/2012)
