State of New York Archives: on Jobs

Wendy Long: Administration has not created jobs in upstate New York

Long accused Gillibrand of doing nothing to create jobs in upstate New York. "As I go around upstate, I see towns with empty storefronts, factories that have been shuttered, paint peeling off of buildings and people desperate for work," Long said. Gillibrand stood by her three-year record in the Senate, and hit Long back on her pledge to not raise taxes to balance the federal budget.

Scott Noren: We need a jobs bill with national job-stimulating potential

Dr. Scott Noren, U.S. Senate candidate running as a Progressive Independent, comments as follows on the Republican debate: "There is a resemblance between Wendy Long, Bob Turner, George Maragos, and Kirsten Gillibrand. Two of them never wrote a successful jobs bill (Turner or Gillibrand) and none have yet to write a proposed jobs bill with national job-stimulating potential either."

Joe DioGuardi: Democrats have created a toxic environment for NY jobs

Gillibrand says she doesn't think it's possible to tell how many jobs a politician has created, adding, "The number one thing we should be doing to create jobs in this state--in this country right now--is getting access to capital into our small businesses."

DioGuardi counters, "Not only did you not create jobs, we've lost many jobs. You've got to be aggressive about what you do to change that and one of the things is: we're in a toxic environment in this state--mainly because of your party."
