New York, NY, September 3, 2010 — Joe DioGuardi, Conservative Party nominee and GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, today “urged Sen. Gillibrand and her liberal allies in Washington to stop spending with today's announcement from the U.S. Department of Labor that the unemployment rate rose to 9.6 percent in August.”
"Sen. Gillibrand has raised taxes, discouraged job creation and forced dependency on government," said DioGuardi. "In her personal agenda to expand the government's role, Gillibrand supported policies that pushed the unemployment rate to 9.6 percent. Until spending is cut and our budget restored, the American dream will stand in jeopardy and jobless rates will inch higher and higher."
Mr DioGuardi said, “While 67,000 private-sector jobs were added in August, losses exceeded gains. The U.S. Department of Labor posted an overall loss of 54,000 jobs. Economists expected the manufacturing industry to be the vehicle for recovery, but this sector actually lost 27,000 jobs last month, likely due to increased federal regulations, the expectation of higher taxes, and only temporary boosts of demand, often artificially and unsustainably created by the government at the expense of taxpayers.”
"Now is the time to put a CPA on Capitol Hill; frankly, we can afford nothing less," DioGuardi continued. "The bottom line is that we need jobs in New York. Sen. Gillibrand used her appointment to the U.S. Senate to spend money we don't have, but when the people elect me as their Senator, I will repair the damage that she and other Democrats have done. Send me to Washington and I will put New York back to work."
Joe DioGuardi, a Certified Public Accountant, founder of Truth In Government and author of "Unaccountable Congress: It Doesn't Add Up," is the NY State Conservative Party nominee and Republican Party candidate for the U.S. Senate.
