Hoyer Statement on July Jobs Report

WASHINGTON DC – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) released the following statement today after the Department of Labor released its jobs report for July: “While I am encouraged that our economy is continuing to add private sector jobs for the twenty-ninth consecutive month with 172 000 private sector jobs created in July more must be done to move our jobs recovery forward. That’s why I have been urging Congress to extend middle class tax cuts for America’s families and small businesses and pursue the Make It In America jobs plan. Unfortunately House Republicans have once again walked away from the Americanpeople when they left town for the summer with a long list of critical work left undone including failing to provide economic certainty to families and businesses by providing tax relief for middle class Americans. “I will continue to urge both parties to work together to enact middle class tax cuts into law and pass Make It In America jobs legislation to get more peoplein Maryland and throughout the country back to work.”      Jobs/Economy/Small Business
