STATE GOP CHAIRMAN ROBIN HAYES SAYS PERDUE HAS NC 'STUCK IN THE MUD'

Today (June 17) North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes released the following statement regarding today’s announcement that North Carolina’s unemployment rate remains at 9.7% for the third straight month and above 9.2% for twenty-nine straight months:

“Today’s announcement from the Employment Security Commission provides a clear picture that North Carolina’s private sector is stuck in the mud thanks to out of control spending and failed policies pursued by Governor Perdue and the tax and spend Democrats in Raleigh. 

This week, Republicans in the General Assembly were able to override Governor Perdue’s budget veto to pass a fact-based bi-partisan budget that right-sizes state government without raising taxes so the private sector can be free to flourish and create jobs.  Our state’s fiscal problems were not caused by Republicans but the Republicans in General Assembly have started laying the groundwork to put our state’s fiscal house in order and get North Carolinians back to work.”
