The U.S. jobless report for June is breaking front page news everywhere today.
WASHINGTON - Employers cut payrolls by 62,000 in June, the sixth straight month of nationwide job losses, underscoring the economy’s fragile state.
Of course, that's not news at all to folks in North Carolina's 8th District where we've lost 62,000 jobs ourselves since Robin Hayes took office.
In fact, if there's even anyone in this bellwether District that never saw this recession on the horizon, it's my opponent, Robin Hayes.
Hayes said the national economy is on the rise. "The economy around the country is very, very strong. Growth continues."
Can you even imagine?
Robin Hayes cast the deciding vote on not one, but two decisive trade bills for George W. Bush that helped send far too many of our jobs overseas.
I want to put North Carolinians and all of America back to work with a moratorium on these bad trade deals until we start to get good paying jobs back. Let's end the tax breaks for multi-national corporations that send our jobs overseas, and encourage small businesses, the backbone of America, to stay here and grow. In honor of Independence Day tomorrow, let's declare our Independence from the Washington politicians like Robin Hayes!
Our campaign introduced a one-of-kind made in North Carolina Kissell for Congress T-shirt this week in honor of the spirit of America, and the response has been incredible. If you haven't chipped in yet to help put America back to work, you can get your T-SHIRT HERE to celebrate your Independence from the Washington politicians...
We're proud to be able to ship you a Kissell for Congress T-shirt made right here in North Carolina for every donation of $25 or more on this page. Or if you'd rather donate your shirt to dress a walker in North Carolina's 8th District, then please use this link to make a donation of any size to help us take our country back.
Remember, as North Carolina's bellwether 8th goes, so goes the nation. Let's get her back on track together. I appreciate your support and hope you have a blessed and safe Independence Day weekend with your family and friends.
