Reid Statement On October Jobs Report

Washington, D.C.— Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement after the Labor Department reported that the economy added 204,000 jobs in October:

“These numbers show steady growth. This is encouraging, but more work remains to be done until every Nevadan and every American who wants a job can get one. The best way we in Congress can grow our economy is by replacing meat-ax cuts with closing wasteful tax loopholes. I hope that in the weeks ahead, my Republican colleagues will work with us to trade European-style austerity for smart policies that reduce the deficit and spur job growth that benefits all Americans, not just those at the very top. It’s time to reinvest in the American economy through policies that rebuild manufacturing and create long-term, high-quality jobs. After years of lurching from crisis to crisis, it is time to give our economy the certainty it needs for strong, sustained growth.”
