Americans for Prosperity Responds to Jobs Report
With President Barack Obama’s political supporters making a big deal about the new 7.8% unemployment number, it is easy to forget the real news: there are 12.1 million Americans who are unemployed and millions more are under-employed. With 114,000 jobs added last month the Great Recession job gap won’t be closed until 2025.
Because of this, Americans for Prosperity has launched a new campaign online, starting with this uncomfortable ad:
“The big-government policies of this administration have left more Americans out of work for longer than under the last 11 Presidents combined,” explained Tim Phillips, President of AFP. “It’s abundantly clear that President Obama’s policies of reckless spending, higher debt, and ever-increasing taxes are putting Americans out of work.”
Also, tomorrow AFP is hosting their 2nd National Prosperity Action Day, with 50+ AFP field offices in 16 states organizing door knocks to poll citizens about President Obama’s policies and job approval. Last time, volunteers made more than 400,000 phone calls, bringing their grand total for the year above 5,000,000.
