Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday called the latest lackluster jobs report a “kick in the gut.”
Romney put the blame on the White House’s economic policies, saying President Obama has failed to create jobs and that it is time for a change.
“This kick in the gut has got to end,” Romney said.
Romney said he would provide a new plan that would lower tax rates, bolster growth and create jobs.
“My plan calls for action that will get America working again and create good jobs in the near term and long term,” Romney said shortly after the release of the June jobs report, which found the economy added only 80,000 jobs for the month.
If elected, Romney said he would implement new trade deals, especially in Latin America, and crack down on China. He also said he would focus on domestic energy production, including building the Keystone oil pipeline.
