DNC Chairwoman: GOP ‘Rooting For Economic Failure’

DNC Chairwoman Says Romney, GOP Lawmakers ‘Rooting For Economic Failure’

By Russell Berman

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), said congressional Republicans and Mitt Romney seem to be “rooting for economic failure” after they panned the latest jobs report.

Wasserman Schultz appeared Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” to defend President Obama’s economic policies and responded to a Labor Department report released Friday that showed employers slowed hiring more than expected in March. The economy added 120,000 jobs, far short of the 200,000 that most economists expected.
