With today’s lackluster jobs report, Senate Democrats are seeing the widespread, negative impact of their reckless tax-and-spend policies. Adding only 194,000 jobs, – rather than the expected 500,000 – the September jobs report turned out to be the “worst of the year.”

“194,000 net new jobs added. Way less, way less than anybody expected and less than last month and the worst of the year.”

Democrats inherited a strengthening economy, but their inflation-inducing spending and job-killing tax hikes have absolutely squandered any economic growth, leaving hardworking families struggling to make ends meet. One might think now is the time for vulnerable Senate Democrats like Catherine Cortez Masto, Maggie Hassan, Raphael Warnock, Mark Kelly, and Michael Bennet to put a stop to their party’s socialist policies. But these fake moderates are silently following Bernie Sanders’s lead.

Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Katharine Cooksey: “Socialism doesn’t work, just take a look at today’s abysmal jobs report. Inflation-inducing spending and the threat of job-killing tax hikes do nothing to create opportunity for U.S. workers, families, and job creators. Senate Democrats are too hyper-focused on rushing through their radical, far-Left agenda to notice the cliff they’re pushing the country off of.”
