Reid Spokesman: “Inserting The Word ‘Jobs’ Into Republicans’ Talking Points Won’t Magically Create Them”

Washington, D.C.Jon Summers, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today in response to reports that “GOP leaders have recently begun inserting the word ‘jobs’ into talking points, floor statements and press conferences” in order to “shore up [Republicans’] credibility on job creation”:

“Inserting the word ‘jobs’ into Republicans’ talking points won’t magically create them.  Instead of just talking about jobs, Senate Democrats have passed two bills that will create or protect 580,000 American jobs, and we are working on a third this week that will help small businesses innovate and expand.  But all we’ve seen from Republicans is empty talk and a reckless spending bill that would kill 700,000 American jobs.”
