Ron Paul Campaign Comments on Latest Job Numbers
LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, a spokesman for Congressman Ron Paul’s 2012 Republican presidential campaign remarked on the most recent U.S. jobs report and the state of the American economy. See comments below.

“If the latest job numbers are any further indication, none of the centralized schemes deployed by Washington's elites are helping regular Americans. As a matter of fact, Barack Obama and the big government crowd are destroying our economy, and our dollar," said Jesse Benton, Paul campaign chairman.

“Despite the fact that none of the past nearly trillion-dollar economic stimuli have worked, all signs point to the Federal Reserve gearing up for another round of ‘quantitative easing’ – meaning more destruction of the already-weakened dollar. At the same time, we have an official Washington that refuses to acknowledge the looming fiscal crisis our country faces with regards to our debt and continues to spend with no end in sight," continued Benton.

“We are going to see real suffering in this country if we do not balance our budget and restore sound monetary policy. And we need to do it now.”
