  AFP Responds to President Obama’s Inaugural Address

A Statement from AFP President Tim Phillips

Arlington, VA- Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s foremost advocate for economic freedom, responded to President Obama’s inaugural address with a statement from AFP President, Tim Phillips.

“For generations, presidents have used inaugural addresses to unite the nation by reaffirming our democratic traditions and touching on broad aspiration themes. Disappointingly, President Obama chose to deliver a harshly ideological, aggressively partisan speech more appropriate for the campaign trail than for the solemn occasion of his inaugural ceremony. His address read like a liberal laundry list with global warming at the top. Americans have rejected environmental extremism in the past and they will again.”

“Americans for Prosperity will certainly be in the vanguard of the effort to oppose the President’s big government policies that spend too much and regulate too much and as a consequence are failing to get our economy moving again.”
