Rep. Larson: Democrats Responded Like Hoover

Democrats paid the price at the ballot box this month for their failure to bring down the unemployment rate, which stood at 9.6 percent in October. And some of them are coming to admit the errors of their ways. Connecticut Rep. John Larson, the House Democratic Caucus chairman, acknowledges his party wasn’t up to the task of reducing joblessness, The Hill reports.

John Larson, Joblessness, Hoover, FDR“We never did enough in terms of that area for us to have the kind of success we would have liked," he said on MSNBC.

"We had a [Franklin] Roosevelt moment and responded like [Herbert] Hoover," Larson added.

Voters in the midterm elections consistently cited the economy and jobs as the top two issues during the campaign.
