Phillips Calls Obama’s “Nanny-State Ideology” the Cause of Failure

ARLINGTON, VA – The premiere grassroots organization Americans for Prosperity responded to President Obama after he criticized the American people on a local Orlando NBC affiliate Thursday night. President Obama accused Americans of going “soft” and that they need to get back “that competitive edge…to get back on track.”

Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips reacts:

“How ironic that a president who has spent his entire first term telling Americans they cannot create jobs so government has to do it for them, that they cannot handle their health care so government has to do it for them, that they cannot run their own businesses or lives so government regulation has to do it for them — now attacks Americans for going ‘soft’ when his own nanny-state ideology has been the cause of the failure.”
