Patrick McHenry (Rep. of NC) message about the President’s visit:
As you know, President Obama was in North Carolina couple weeks ago to continue campaigning in the guise of pushing his so-called “Jobs Bill.” We’ve heard the rhetoric before that we have to pass his plan in order to reduce unemployment. But in 2009, he said we had to pass his Stimulus Bill or unemployment would skyrocket. The Democrat-controlled Congress passed his bill and unemployment has only increased.
The chart below compares the President’s predictions to reality:
Just this past week, there was a bipartisan vote to reject the President’s plan. In order to truly turn around our economy we need to repeal ObamaCare, reject the President’s call for tax hikes, and roll back the 81,205 pages of job crushing regulations that the Obama Administration has added to the books.
This week, the non-partisan polling firm, Gallup, released a survey of small businesses showing that complying with government regulation is the number one problem they face.
