“Two years after the Obama administration declared, ‘welcome to the recovery,’ this much is clear: with 42 consecutive months of unemployment above eight percent, the private sector still isn’t ‘doing fine’ and President Obama’s economic plan did not work. While the president is telling small businesses ‘you didn’t build that,’ his policies are making surethey can’t.
“Any new job creation is welcome news – but with unemployment still above eight percent and rising, and millions of Americans looking for work, it is insane to raise taxes on small businesses, as the president and his allies in the Democratic-controlled Senate propose. Ernst & Young says their tax hike will destroy more than 700,000 jobs. And yet, top Democrats say they’re willing to let taxes rise on middle class families, tank our economy, and impose devastating cuts to our national security if they don’t get their way. It’s reckless, it’s wrong, and House Republicans aren’t standing for it.
