Republican congressman Kevin Brady joins us now yeah.
Congressman this is Friday jobs report you've seen the numbers a sharp drop in that to seven point 8%.
I want -- initial reaction to this what -- Yeah I think we're folks I'm wrong number I think the jobs number the 1141000.
Extremely weak again doesn't even keep pace with population growth we ought to be.
Two -- -- 400000.
New jobs every month this far out.
From and recession ended if you look closely to unemployment number yes more people wouldn't back to work but the bulk of them nearly 600000.
Got only part time jobs they wanted full time.
They're giving part time that's a key reason -- -- implement because numbered dropped in and we don't want a part time recovery.
Thank you for bringing that up because you are dead right.
People say that they found look this is from the household -- of 873000.
But as you correctly point out.
If you look within that 800000 number.
On the war in part time -- which they don't necessarily want.
That is not a picture of a robust.
-- this would be a different report if it was three years ago -- we are fighting to get out of the recession it's been three years since it ended.
And these numbers are very very weak the economy.
This year continues to be slower than last year and the year before that so we've got a long long way to go plus the number of people who -- looking for work.
It's still nearly at a thirty year low that's not to sign of a healthy recovery either okay.
I don't big governor Romney in the debate.
Look right into the camera and he gave his five point plan I'm sure you're watching I'm sure you -- it.
What -- you think about his plan for growth growing the economy.
It's more than doable in fact you know if you look at his his.
Effort to try to -- twelve million new jobs truth is.
If this president's recovery was just averaged four million more people will be going to work today -- looking for work.
In if it had been -- Reagan level recovery.
More than six million people be going back to work.
So what governor Romney is proposing as a recipe for economic growth.
I think not only will work.
But will hit the numbers he believes it will all right Kevin Brady Republican -- and thanks as always for joining us thank you very much indeed --
