There is new reaction just in now for Mitt Romney camp on this jobs report calling it devastating news for American workers and their families.
Want to bring in Minnesota congresswoman Michelle plus.
Republican at a Washington this morning human thank you for your time this is the word forty -- miniscule we added about 6869000.
In the month of may what's going on out there.
Well as devastating as governor Romney said because this is less than half of what the projections were for the month and that still isn't nearly enough to get us back in the fall employment remember.
That -- that Barack Obama came into office he talks about what he inherited.
He inherited unemployment of seven point 6%.
President Obama has had his chance he's been an office almost a full term of four years we're sitting here at eight point 2% unemployment.
This is the bedrock number of the economy what's happening to jobs and I will tell you.
In my own state of Minnesota.
That which is the president is in Minnesota today there is -- another devastating number that came out it said that 40% of all homes are under water in other words the owner owes more.
Then what they can get port on the market and that their jobs announced go to because oftentimes we associate that with -- -- battery and counts right.
That's right and that tells you something because we're a strong stable diverse economy.
But the jobs numbers are the driver because when people feel that they can't move and change out of their job.
They're stuck and they can't move and they can't figure out how to get -- the next gear in their lives.
That's -- this is devastating news and again I just want to remind everyone.
President Obama said if he can't turn the economy around in three years he's limited to a one term proposition I think he's being prophetic.
What he's talking about where the American people are -- they have zero confidence and the president's ability to build understanding economy and and make the right decisions to create more jobs clearly this is a damning and guys.
I think -- a little more from the statement from the Romney campaign the president's reelection slogan may be forward but it seems like we've been moving backward.
That it has a line about you Obama economy is crushing America's.
I was with them on Monday and asked him how he makes that connection the middle class Americans.
How does he best do that.
What -- will governor Romney is making that connection with the middle class Americans because I think there's one thing that middle class Americans know about governor Romney is a very Smart guy he has an optimistic message any as a proven record -- understanding the economy is very savvy.
This is something that people can trust governor Romney on and women especially.
Are very nervous about the job market for themselves as well as for their husbands or her her for the men and their lives.
And so this is not good news for him pres Obama has proved clearly he doesn't understand which tools we need to put into place.
His two will look choices been debt accumulation.
Debt accumulation has been anathema to private job growth.
If you look at the parallel trend lines do you have bill.
An increase in unemployment as well as an increase on national federal debt accumulation.
Those two numbers don't go well together we have to lower the national debt and I think that will lower unemployment now.
The vote is in six months Michelle Bachmann thank you for your time coming back thing you talk again.
