Release from RNC…

The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement reacting to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s fundraising trip to Mississippi today:

“While DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in Mississippi today on behalf of the Mississippi Democratic Party, she’ll likely continue repeating her outlandish claims that the economy is improving, as she did with her recent statement that it’s on the ‘upswing.’ As Barack Obama’s unpopularity across the country soars, she’s been making astonishing excuses for him, all while proving just how frighteningly out-of-touch Democrats are.

“Americans are suffering from an unemployment rate that has been stuck above eight percent for 32 months. Fourteen million people are out of work, and another 9.3 million cannot find the full-time jobs they need. Yet the Democrat Party is so desperate to score political points that their Chairwoman insists the economy is getting better.

“In reality, their policies created an economic disaster for Mississippians and families all across the country. From unaccountable stimulus spending to job-killing regulations, the Democrats’ agenda is the single biggest roadblock to job creation. Debbie Wasserman Schultz may try to deny it, but Americans deserve better.”
