HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Philadelphia.
“The DC Liberal Establishment continues to swarm the Keystone State for Hillary Clinton talking about continuing a failed status quo,” Gleason said. “Joe Biden is campaigning for Hillary Clinton so she can maintain the same old, same old. For the past eight years, President Obama and Vice President Biden’s extreme liberal agenda has resulted in Pennsylvanians losing their jobs, paying more taxes, and worrying about the future of their health care. Considering the state of the world, it may be impossible to find two people who have been more wrong on the majority of foreign policy decisions than Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. Now, Hillary Clinton wants to continue to grow the size of government and expand the culture of corruption that has followed her around for her entire career.
“Donald Trump wants to bring change to the White House. Donald Trump knows what it takes to be successful in this economy, and he’s ready to put America on the right track. Unlike Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is more concerned with growing our economy than offering empty platitudes. We are going to Make America Great Again on November 8th – no matter what the DC insiders want.”

Today, There’s Another Disappointing Jobs Report Thanks To The Obama-Clinton Agenda…
The National Unemployment Rate Rose Today Following A Disappointing Jobs Report. “Job growth was disappointing for a second straight month in September as employers added 156,000 jobs, raising questions about the health of an economy that was expected to perk up from a prolonged slump in the second half of the year. The unemployment rate rose to 5% from 4.9%, the Labor Department said Friday, as a rise in employment was more offset by a sharp increase in the labor force, or the number of Americans working and looking for jobs. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg had forecast 172,000 payroll gains… Job gains for July and August were revised down by 7,000.” (Paul Davidson, “Disappointing 156,000 jobs added in September,” USA Today, 10/7/2016)
…But Hillary Gave The Obama Administration An “A” For Its Overall Performance

QUESTIONER: “As for President Obama himself, what letter grade would you give his administration?” CLINTON: “I’d give him an ‘A.’ I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves for saving our economy from falling into a great depression, for saving the auto industry which represents millions of jobs up and down the supply chain, for beginning the crackdown on Wall Street abuses with Dodd-Frank, for getting the Affordable Care Act passed, for really being as responsive as he could possibly be given the obstructionism that he faced with the Republicans in Congress.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks In An Interview With The Boston Globe, Keene, NH, 10/17/2015)
