WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) released the following statement in response to the latest jobs report:

“President Obama is out of ideas, cannot defend his record, and has no plans for a second term but more of the same. We need a new direction and it starts with stopping the tax hike that is coming at the end of the year, cutting spending, and lifting the burden of overregulation so the private economy can create more jobs. We are not going to see the kind of growth we need until businesses have confidence in the policies of the federal government.”

Congressman Alan Nunnelee represents Mississippi’s First Congressional District and serves on the House Appropriations Committee. This is his first term.
