Rep. Andy Harris Statement on May Unemployment Report

“President Obama’s failed policies have led to the longest period of sustained unemployment since the Great Depression. May’s dismal unemployment report marks the 40th straight month of 8 percent unemployment in America. It’s clear that the President’s failed policies are hurting hard-working families. According to a recent Census Bureau report, nearly half of all Americans are classified as poor or low income. A record number of Americans now receive food stamps and the median family income has decreased by over $1,000 since President Obama took office. Americans can no longer afford the President’s new normal of high unemployment.”
