Corbett-Cawley Campaign Manager Mike Barley released the following statement on January’s jobs report where unemployment dropped to 6.4%, the lowest level since November 2008 and below the national rate of 6.7%:

“Under the leadership of Governor Tom Corbett, Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate continues to drop, and today, it is at its lowest level since November of 2008. Well below the national unemployment rate, Governor Corbett’s ‘More Jobs, Less Taxes’ agenda is growing our economy and putting Pennsylvanians back to work.”

“The Obama tax-and-spend agenda our opponents hope to bring to Harrisburg threatens to take Pennsylvania back to the failed policies that left a $4.2 billion budget deficit when the governor took office and higher unemployment.”
