Romney blames Obama for sluggish June job growth

WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says the nation’s ongoing sluggish job growth is unacceptable and his policies would work better than President Barack Obama’s.

Romney said Friday’s report that only 80,000 jobs were created in June is evidence that Obama’s tax, energy and regulatory policies are hampering growth.

Romney said he would lower taxes, reduce regulations on energy producers, open new trade with Latin America and crack down on China for what he described as unfair practices that steal American jobs.

He said the nation’s 8.2 percent unemployment rate doesn’t reflect the number of Americans who are underemployed or have quit looking for work.

Romney spoke 10 minutes and took five questions from reporters in New Hampshire, where he is vacationing.
