Barrasso: Pro-Growth Republican Policies Fuel Robust Job Creation

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement today regarding the January jobs report:

“America’s sizzling economy continues to produce more and more jobs, fueled by pro-growth Republican policies. With a massive 304,000 new jobs created in January, 3 million new jobs have been added since Republicans passed tax reform. Wages also continue to rise, which is good news for American workers who are seeing more money in their paychecks. As Republicans focus on creating even more quality jobs for the American people, Democrats are pushing higher taxes and more regulations that would crush job creation. We can’t let Democrats impose job-killing policies that would snuff out growing opportunity for American workers.”
