Today on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke about jobs and the economy, what he referred to as a “tepid recovery.”
McConnell: "We have got 41 straight months now of unemployment above 8 percent, 41 straight months. Candy, this is the most tepid recovery - if it is a recovery - from a deep recession in American history."
"The economy is just sputtering along and the reason for that, in my judgment, is because of what the administration chose to do: spend, borrow, pass this new ObamaCare law with its penalty tax in it, its mandate tax. All of this is slowing the economy down."
