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?
