TPP Action Reacts to “Very Encouraging” Jobs Report


Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today after the Labor Department’s monthly jobs report showed unemployment falling to 13.3 percent with 2.5 million jobs added in May.

“Today’s jobs report is very encouraging. We are primed to have a V-shaped economic recovery, but only if states and cities start reopening at a faster pace. We have over 42 million people currently collecting unemployment, so time is of the essence. When Democratic politicians allowed rioters to roam the streets – without masks or social distancing – it proved the lockdowns had nothing to do with public health and everything to do with politics. The President’s pro-growth policies created the best economy in 50 years, and we can return to that prosperity if the failed politicians just get out of the way.”
