“Today’s job news showed that Pennsylvania had the largest increase in initial jobless claims of any state in the country two weeks ago. While John McCain and Hillary Clinton continually claim their Washington experience as the primary reason they should be President, these numbers show that the ways of Washington are not working for the residents of Pennsylvania. As Sen. Obama demonstrated in town after town across Pennsylvania earlier this week, he has an agenda that includes immediate relief for homeowners, a second stimulus package that expands unemployment insurance and helps state and local governments, and investments in millions of new jobs to strengthen our economy. Our economy is struggling because the American people are struggling, and simply bailing out investment banks on Wall Street will not help Main Street.” — Senator Barack Obama
