Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a Labor Day message on Monday blamed the “Obama economy” for stifling growth and opportunity for American workers.
“Under the Obama economy, we have seen the lowest labor force participation since the late 1970s,” the GOP presidential candidate said in a statement. “Families, small businesses, minorities, and young people are being crushed by rising premiums and fewer good-paying jobs due to Obamacare, vast costs from new agency regulations, and a byzantine tax code.
“Manufacturing has steadily declined during Obama’s presidency, and the industriousness that has empowered workers and pioneered innovation is fading under his watch,” he added.
The Labor Department said last Friday that the U.S. economy added a disappointing 169,000 jobs in August while the unemployment rate dropped to 7.3 percent.
