SHAHEEN STATEMENT ON DISAPPOINTING GDP REPORT

January 30, 2013

“Today’s disappointing growth report underscores the need for our primary focus to remain on fostering economic growth and job creation. It also highlights the importance of avoiding the automatic cuts in the sequester, which will recklessly slash investments in education, research, and other critical areas of job growth, and to instead come to a long-term, comprehensive agreement to address our debt and deficits in a fair and responsible manner.”
