Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann called today's jobs report, "further evidence that President Obama's failed economic policies are not working and have completely stalled job growth."
Today's Labor Department report shows that the unemployment rate was stuck at 9.1 percent last month.
"After spending three days last month on a bus tour focusing on jobs - today's economic report shows that the nation's economy is sitting at a huge stop sign," said Bachmann. "It's time for a comprehensive restructuring of how Washington spends taxpayers' dollars by controlling spending and encouraging pro-growth economic policies."
The White House had its own statement on the report.
"Clearly, faster growth is needed to replace the jobs lost in the downturn," said White House economist Katharine Abraham.
