Nevada Has The Highest Unemployment & Foreclosure Rate In The Country
WASHINGTON — As embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley continues to dodge Nevadans, today President Barack Obama will visit the University of Nevada Las Vegas, where he will remind Nevadans that his failed economic policies have made things worse for the Silver State.
Thanks to his liberal allies in Congress, President Obama was able to sign Shelley Berkley, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi’s $825 billion stimulus that failed to ‘create or save’ 34,000 jobs in Nevada.
Additionally, their job-killing healthcare law – which has hurt companies in Las Vegas like the Palms – has created economic harm in the Silver State.
“Embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley likes to hide from President Barack Obama in Nevada, but in Washington she’s always at his side supporting his failed policies like the stimulus and ObamaCare,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “After 24 months of the highest unemployment rate in the country, it’s clear the economic policies of President Obama and Representative Berkley are not working.”
