Stratford, CT - Today, Christopher Shays, Republican candidate for United States Senate, released this statement on today's June jobs report.

"This month brings another disappointing jobs report," said Christopher Shays. "Only 80,000 jobs were created in the month of June and unemployment remained stagnant at 8.2%. The number of people counted as unemployed is now higher in June than it was in March. By no estimates can this be called an economic recovery."

"Employment is driven by investment, and businesses are throttling back on investment as we get closer to the massive tax increases scheduled for January 1, 2013.

The June jobs report highlights the need for a path to recovery that is focused on robust economic growth so we can recover the ground we lost during the past three years, and get our country back on track. Achieving 4% sustained economic growth is the solution to full employment, better jobs, rising income and prosperity.

President Obama has had three years to reverse our economic downturn and has failed to lead America in the right direction. He is focused on the wrong issues and continues to neglect the importance of economic growth.

The only way to get people back to work is by sending the right Senators to Washington to put our nation on a new path to prosperity. Chris Murphy’s record of partisan support for Nancy Pelosi’s and President Obama’s broken policies is not the right path. Linda McMahon has no experience and lacks the understanding of the issues to make any significant changes.

We need to send a Senator from Connecticut with the experience to fix this problem. I have the knowledge, experience and guts to hit the ground running on day one, roll up my sleeves and help restore sanity to Washington."
