Chuck Schumer: GOP ‘Booing Any Positive Sign About The Economy’



BENJY SARLIN 3:02 PM EDT, FRIDAY OCTOBER 5, 2012

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took a dig at Republicans for questioning a new jobs report showing the unemployment rate declining to 7.8 percent.

"These half-baked conspiracy theories are proof that some of the President's opponents are openly rooting for the economy to do poorly just to boost their political prospects." Schumer said in a statement. "After years of blocking this President's jobs proposals, now they are booing any positive sign about the economy just because the election is a month away. Republicans should welcome a lower unemployment rate, not curse it as an unwanted October surprise."
