Angle campaign: Reid statement on unemployment shows disconnect



angle1-1103204-5194742U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle today said she is dismayed by the latest unemployment figures for Nevada and said they reflect “the utter failure of the Reid approach to the U.S. economy.”

The newest numbers showed Nevada’s unemployment rate at 14 percent, the highest in the nation.

During a Senate speech yesterday, Harry Reid stated that the Nevada economy “is getting better but not good.”

Angle spokesman Jerry Stacy responded by saying things are not getting better but getting worse.

“Reid’s response reflects just how out of touch Harry Reid is with the plight of Nevada families,” Stacy said. “It is now clearer than ever that the Obama/Reid agenda of increased government spending, oppressive regulation of business and the uncertain effect of Obamacare and a massive tax increase when the 2001 tax cuts expire in 2011 is only adding fuel to the fire. We need proposals to help, not hinder, businesses from hiring new workers and give them certainty on taxes and regulation.”

Stacy said that Sharron Angle will go to Washington and be a voice for lower taxes, less government spending and giving families more of their money back to help get Nevada moving again.
