Auburn, Me -Following recent reports of increasing national and Maine specific unemployment rates, 2nd District Congressional Candidate Jason Levesque released the following statement on the jobs market:

"Yet another round of unemployment statistics and another round of disappointment for families in Maine and across the country. This Administration and Congress have been abject failures when it comes to stimulating this economy so we can create jobs. But, that's the biggest problem-Congress is trying to create jobs themselves instead of getting out of the way so the private sector can do it. Maine's unemployment rate increased again from June to July - that simply means more people out of work; more people struggling to pay for their mortgages and feed their families; more people unable to spend money in the market place.

"These numbers come along with news that Connect North America Corp. of Presque Isle, Maine is closing a call-center, putting 100 people out of work due to the economy. We have got to stop the hemorrhaging of jobs. Mike Michaud and this Congress have voted for massive spending, for job-killing legislation such as Obamacare and the Cap and Trade bill, for stimulus after stimulus.  They are killing Maine businesses and hurting Maine families. Last week, Congress reconvened in a special session and instead of working on legislation to stimulate our job market, they did a quick bill to hand out more cash to benefit their union friends. Mike Michaud and Congress must be held accountable.

"When I am elected, I will fight to reduce the over-regulation that is destroying our industries. I will vote to reduce taxes on businesses and provide tax incentives so businesses may grow and hire. I will vote to repeal Obamacare and replace it with reform that reduces costs for individuals and businesses. We need to get our economy on track, get people back to work and get Congress out of the way of achieving these goals."
