SACRAMENTO, CA – Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement regarding the announcement that Campbell’s Soup will be moving its operations to North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas to reduce costs, putting 700 individuals on the unemployment line:

“No one should be surprised that Campbell’s Soup has decided to move their operations out of California. In the past few years, numerous other companies have done the same.

Another Dismal Jobs Report Shows Obama’s Policies Haven’t Worked For America

The Associated Press Headline: “60-Day Election Sprint Opens With Weak Jobs Report”(Julie Pace and Donna Cassata, “60-Day Election Sprint With Weak Jobs Report,” The Associated Press , 9/7/12)

  • The Associated Press “U.S. employers added 96,000 jobs last month, a weak figure that could slow any momentum President Barack Obama hoped to gain from his speech to the Democratic National Convention.” (Christopher S Rugaber, “US Economy Adds 96k Jobs, Rate Falls To 8.1 Pct.,” The Associated Press, 9/7/12)

From Elizabeth Emken for U.S. Senate:

(ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – Elizabeth Emken, Republican challenger for U.S. Senate in California, today released the following statement regarding this morning’s employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“The latest unemployment figures are simply unacceptable, especially when growing numbers of people have simply given up trying to get a job, business owners are hesitant to commit to expanding and hiring, and our economy has become so sluggish that even a whisper of an economic turnaround gets a standing ovation.

From Speaker of the House, John Boehner:

Democrats have been “put in [a] tight spot” by their threats to tank our economy and harm our national security if they don’t get a small business tax hike. A new Ernst & Young study found President Obama’s plan threatens more than 700,000 American jobs – a frightening prospect for families after more than three years of failed ‘stimulus’ spending, excessive regulations, and unemployment above 8 percent.

Nearly Half Of Obama’s $2.4 Billion Devoted To Advanced Vehicle Batteries Went To Foreign Companies. “Nearly half of the $2.4 billion in federal grant money awarded Wednesday to stimulate the U.S. economy and boost the production of hybrid and electric vehicles went to six companies with ties to places as far away as Russia, China, South Korea and France. … But because so few American companies have the necessary technology, much of the money will initially go toward manufacturing electric vehicle batteries overseas.”  (Jerry Seper, “Obama Sends Stimulus Aid To Foreign Firms,” The Washington Times, 8/6/09) (more…)

From John Boehner, Speaker of the House:

Here’s one question President Obama should have to answer at his press conference this morning: how will raising taxes on small businesses create new jobs?

The unemployment rate has been higher than eight percent for 41 months – the longest streak since the Great Depression – and well above what was promised by the ‘stimulus’ spending binge. No wonder a new survey by The Hill found a majority of Americans believe President Obama has made things worse. (more…)

From Speaker John Boehner:

A growing number of Senate Democrats are signaling they are not prepared to raise taxes on anyone in the weak economy,” The Hill reports today, adding that they “do not want to have to explain an across-the-board tax hike to constituents when economic growth is sluggish and unemployment is high.” According to the report, at least seven Democrats oppose President Obama’s plan to raise taxes on small business job creators, and are signaling support for the bipartisan plan to stop all of the tax hikes.
