Garcia Says Economy is Growing but Facts Say Otherwise

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, the United States Department of Commerce released a report stating the economy “decreased at an annual rate of 1.0 percent in the first quarter.” On the heels of the recent Environmental Protection Agency’s cap-and-trade scheme that could cost the U.S. economy $50 billion a year and eliminate an estimated 224,000 jobs, does Joe Garcia continue to believe the economy is growing under Obama’s liberal agenda?

“It is clear that Joe Garcia is out of touch with Florida voters as he continues to support Obama’s failed economic policies and believes the economy is growing,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Florida families deserve a Republican leader in Congress who will vote against the President and his Administration’s job-destroying policies and will promote economic stability.”

FYI, a similar version of this release below went out to the following districts: Brad Schneider (IL-10), Collin Peterson (MN-07), Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), Dan Maffei (NY-24) and Carol Shea-Porter(NH-01)

“I think you’re feeling the economy slowly comeback. It’s certainly not where we want it to be, but I think in the slow progression of where we are, I think we’re in a good place. But it’s gonna take each and everyone of you to sort of dig in, put your soldier to it, and work with us to try to move this forward.”
