DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to the May jobs report:
“Today’s job report is further evidence that President Biden’s economic agenda is working. Thanks to the work of President Biden and Democrats — and in spite of Republican inaction and political games — our country continues its strong economic recovery.
“While Republicans continue to push an ultra-MAGA agenda that could raise taxes on millions of American families, end the Medicare and Social Security guarantees, increase health care costs, and do nothing to cap insulin prices, Democrats are working to lower costs for everyday Americans on everything from child care to energy costs and prescription drugs. That’s the choice in November: between Democrats who have presided over historic economic growth and have a plan to further reduce costs, and Republicans who have pitched ideas that would make Americans poorer while continuing to cut taxes for corporations and the ultra-wealthy. The choice is clear.”
