Democrat’s Economic Plan is Working
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — FEBRUARY 3, 2023 – Democrats and the Biden administration have finished off two years of the most robust job growth in history with the lowest level of unemployment in the past 50 years. The economic plan is working, and so are the numerous efforts to help make ends meet for working families.
“While the latest jobs numbers show incredible economic growth, the lowest unemployment since 1969, President Biden and Democrats continue to deliver more. We surpassed expectations with 517,000 jobs versus the expected 189,000. As the economy grows, Democrats also focus on lowering energy and utility bills as more workers enter the job force, offer access to affordable daycare and expanded health care coverage, job training, and reduced housing costs. It’s all about doing the work for everyday citizens,” stated Alicia Andrews, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair.
“Working families also deserve good, well-paying jobs and the ability to put food on the table and breathe in between paychecks as our economy grows. President Biden’s Infrastructure and Jobs Act has delivered for Oklahomans through grants and investments in our economy. Democrats continue to put all efforts into our economy from the bottom up and middle out over the long term. We are committed to that long-term plan, not quick fixes that only benefit those at the top,” Andrews concluded.
