DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollenís Statement on 159,000 More Jobs Lost in September

DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on today's news that America's economy lost 159,000 jobs in September, the most in five years:

 

"Two Mondays ago, John McCain proclaimed that the fundamentals of our economy are strong yet today we learned that 159,000 more jobs were slashed in September, the ninth straight month of job losses for our nation.

 

"Today's news is proof-positive that the failed Bush-McCain economic agenda has hit Main Street hard. Yet John McCain and House Republicans are offering an economic plan that amounts to more of the same failed policies of President Bush.

 

"Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and a strong Democratic Majority in Congress will take our economy and our country in a profound new direction."
