Americans for Prosperity Responds to VP Debate
ARLINGTON, VA – Tonight Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s largest advocate for economic freedom, issued the following statement on the Vice Presidential debate:
AFP President Tim Phillips said, “Tonight Congressman Paul Ryan clearly articulated the ongoing failures of President Obama’s big-government agenda while Vice President Biden covered his inability to explain these failures with sneers, giggles and eye rolls.
Despite Biden’s interruptions and outbursts, he offered no defense for President Obama’s record on irresponsible spending, no solutions on the looming ObamaCare tax, and no real solutions to pull America out of the most anemic economic ‘recovery’ seen in modern history.”
Americans for Prosperity has presented its own Jobs Agenda, which calls for reforms to the tax code to keep America competitive, full repeal of the costly taxes in Obama’s health care law, and an end to Washington’s wasteful spending that has driven the national debt over $16 trillion.
