Washington, D.C. - Congressman Dave Loebsack today issued the following statement in response to the Department of Labor’s announcement that the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 8.2 percent in June and 80,000 jobs were added.

“Today’s job report makes one thing very clear– we have a long way to go to get the economy back to where it should be. To make matters even worse, Republicans have so far shown no interest in even discussing a comprehensive jobs package.  Instead, they continue to play political games, in which the real losers are Iowa’s middle class families.  I have long said that fixing our economy should not be a partisan fight.  If there is one thing that should bring the two parties together, it is working to create jobs. I have been willing to sit down and work together and the fact that it hasn’t yet happened is disappointing.  It’s time for Congress to put our country and families ahead of politics and get down to the real work that Iowans need to see get done.”
