Steele hits Obama on latest jobs numbers

(CNN) - Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele issued a statement Thursday on the latest jobs report showing the unemployment rate has risen to 9.5 percent.

“June’s unemployment report shows a job loss of 467,000 and proves that the stimulus package is not a ‘Recovery Act.’ Today President Obama will hold another White House PR event with presidential spin instead of putting forth real world, free market solutions that will put Americans back to work. With the unemployment rate now at 9.5 percent and continuing to rise, Americans need real solutions that help them find work – not bigger government, higher taxes, increased federal spending and an unsustainable national debt.”
