Statement by the Vice President on Economic Indicators Released Today

June 26, 2009

We won't be satisfied until we begin to see job growth, but these are early signs that the Recovery Act is beginning to do exactly what it should – provide stability for hard-hit families and businesses and create the conditions necessary for our economic recovery.
