Americans for Prosperity, a free market grassroots organizations committed to smaller government and free enterprise, today released the following statement with regard to President Obamas plan to raise taxes to fund his repeated attempts to use government spending to create jobs.
AFP President Tim Phillips said:
City of Knoxville Mayoral candidate Madeline Rogero is absolutely wrong to be touting federal green grants, such as the Solar America Cities program, or meeting LEED certifications.
In a speech laying out her vision for Knoxville, Rogero pointedly adopts making the city green as a core principle of a future administration. We have a number of problems with city government taking on such an expensive agenda.

Facing a feeble economy, a falling approval rating, and a stubbornly-high unemployment rate, the pressure is on for President Obama to do something to get business activity back on track and Americans back to work. So in an address to the nation last Thursday, the President announced a new plan he thinks will do exactly that. Among the proposals, only a few have a chance of passing through the Republican-controlled House of Representatives: to conservative lawmakers, "stimulus" is a dirty word. But fortunately for the President he can proceed with one plan a mortgage refinancing program that will cost taxpayers $600 million entirely without Congressional approval.
The Obama Administration used federal marshals to raid a Nashville company, Gibson Guitars, in August; in an effort to find woods that were illegally imported from India. Tennesseans already know this story, what should make us all furious is the duplicitous way this raid was carried out, and the hypocrisy of Obamas actions.
AFP-Tennessee commends Rep. Marsha Blackburn for taking Gibson Guitars defense to the nations capital; hosting a press conference with Speaker Boehner to deplore the federal governments running roughshod over Gibson Guitars business, and civil rights.
