DescriptionRENO, NV - Fresh off the news that Nevada overtook Michigan for the highest unemployment rate in America, new unemployment numbers were released today showing that last place just sunk a little lower. Unemployment in Nevada hit 14.2 percent, a record high despite the passage of Majority Leader Harry Reid’s $787 billion stimulus package that was rammed through the Senate eighteen months ago.

U.S Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle said “Harry Reid likes to brag that ‘no one can do more,’ and if you’re one of the small businesses feeling besieged by this current economic climate or one of the nearly 200,000 Nevadans struggling to find a job, these new unemployment numbers serve as a reminder that the state can’t afford six more years of Harry Reid.”
