Heller on September jobless rate: ‘We need to change course’

From Las Vegas Review-Journal:


Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., reacting to this morning’s report that Nevada’s unemployment rate remained at 13.4 percent in September while it improved in Las Vegas, said this in a statement:


“As I talk with Nevadans across the state, it’s clear that not enough is being done to help grow private sector jobs. Job creation is and continues to be my top priority.  To help spur job growth in Nevada and across our nation, we need an economic plan that includes spending reform, tax reform and regulatory reform to provide the certainty businesses need to hire.


“Instead, we are getting more of the same ineffective policies from the President. When nearly a billion dollars was spent on the stimulus in February 2009, we were told unemployment wouldn’t rise above 8 percent. Now, Nevada’s unemployment is steady at 13.4 percent. Instead of new ideas, the Administration wants more stimulus spending and more bailouts, the same approach that has Nevada leading the nation in unemployment and foreclosures. Clearly we need to change course. I ask the President again, ‘Is this working?’ “
