Romney: Jobs figures are a ‘kick in the gut’

July 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday called the latest lackluster jobs report a “kick in the gut.”

Romney put the blame on the White House’s economic policies, saying President Obama has failed to create jobs and that it is time for a change.

“This kick in the gut has got to end,” Romney said.

Romney said he would provide a new plan that would lower tax rates, bolster growth and create jobs.

“My plan calls for action that will get America working again and create good jobs in the near term and long term,” Romney said shortly after the release of the June jobs report, which found the economy added only 80,000 jobs for the month.

If elected, Romney said he would implement new trade deals, especially in Latin America, and crack down on China. He also said he would focus on domestic energy production, including building the Keystone oil pipeline.

    Will the people of this nation pay attention and act to save our freedom?  Will they open their eyes to the waste of money that we do not have to spend and to the degeneration that is occurring in the lack of morality and honesty governing our country?  I believe that the people will stand up and take back this great land that so much has been sacrificed for.  I believe that God still has His hand on this great land.  SCB
