WASHINGTON, April 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), senior Democratic appropriator for the Commerce Department on the House Appropriations Committee, issues this statement on today's monthly jobs report:
"President Obama's economic policies keep on working for the American people. Today's report shows that 120,000 more Americans are going to work than in the previous month – and the unemployment rate has dropped again. We're into our third year – 25 consecutive months – of private sector job growth.
"There's still much work to be done. It's time for the majority in the House to put aside notions that would crush recovery and the American dream and get behind the President's jobs bill and other jump-starting proposals. Growing consumer confidence, and the robust, government-aided recovery of the auto industry show that these are the policies that work."
