Today in Portland: Grassroots to Rally During Obama Visit
PORTLAND, OR – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s leading advocate for economic freedom, will rally citizens today at 11 AM in downtown Portland as President Obama visits Oregon. The message to the President is clear: Oregon needs more jobs, not more empty promises.
“President Obama promised an ‘all of the above’ energy policy, but continues to pick winners and losers in the market based on his own personal alliances and ideology,” said Karla Kay Edwards, AFP-Oregon State Director. “The potential for jobs and economic growth is extensive, if only the government would get out of the way and allow the export of American coal from our ports.”
Edwards continued, “Citizens will be rallying together to demand President Obama cut the red tape and help get Oregon and America back to work.”
Media are invited to attend. Details below.
