President’s SOTU Address Showcases Liberal Extremism
Arlington, VA- Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s foremost advocate for economic freedom, responded to President Obama’s State of the Union Address with a statement from AFP President, Tim Phillips.
“Tonight the President delivered the Inauguration Speech part two; more harsh ideology laced with aggressively partisan rhetoric including the now standard class warfare attacks calling for new tax increases and more government overspending.
“Disappointingly, the President chose to begin his fourth state of the union speech by attacking the very sequester cuts that he and Congress agreed to almost two years ago, calling them “a really bad idea.” President Obama actually believes that government spending, even with deficits breaking a trillion dollars each of the last four years, can create lasting jobs and prosperity. The American people know better.
“Then later, the President pandered once again to environmental extremists as he promised to ignore Congress and continue using the full regulatory apparatus of his Administration in pursuit of his global warming agenda. Thankfully, Americans have rejected the President’s extreme agenda because they know it leads to higher energy costs, lost jobs and less freedom.”
