On the heels of an extremely positive jobs report for the nation – U.S. payrolls increased by 162,000 last month, the highest increase in three years – White House economic adviser Larry Summers spoke to the press today to tout this administration’s success in getting Americans back to work.

Yet still needed, Summers said, is “comprehensive” energy legislation, to instill confidence in producers and consumers alike.

“Clarity brings certainty, certainty brings confidence and confidence moves the economy forward,” Summers said.
