Thad McCotter on the Economy: I Blame Obama and Romney

Gee, do you think Michigan congressman and new presidential candidate Thaddeus McCotter has a particular GOP rival he wants to damage?

U.S. Representative Thaddeus G. McCotter (MI) has issued the following statement today in response to the June jobs report:

“Over sixteen million Americans are unemployed. Over thirty million Americans are unable to pursue better jobs because of the failed stimulus and other irresponsible, job-crushing policies.  Inflation is rising.  Real wages are declining — everywhere except at the Obama White House.  To Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney’s big government and bailout banks, this is an economic statistic.  To Main Street, this is real suffering.  This must and will end. 

“Like every one else in this age of international, global competition, big government and the bailout banks must be restructured for the future, and taxation and regulatory reform must be implemented, so our entrepreneurs and workers can immediately grown our economy and commence an era of unprecedented prosperity for the American people.”

Of course, Romney has not been in a policy-making position since January 4, 2007.
