GOP Weekly Address

From the GOP, “In the Weekly Republican Address, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), Vice Chair of the Senate Republican Conference, discusses Democrats’ broken promises on jobs, government spending, and health care.
Sen. Barrasso says, “The White House promised that massive federal spending would keep the unemployment rate below 8%. Instead what taxpayers got was $800 billion in new debt and nearly 10% unemployment. . . . The President promised to be financially responsible with your tax dollars. Yet our federal government continues down a ruinous path of outrageous spending, borrowing and piling more and more debt on future generations. . . . [D]uring the debate over health care President Obama promised time and time again that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. Well, it’s now clear that the President has broken that promise too.”
He concludes, “The President’s policies are irresponsible, and unsustainable. Worse, many Americans fear the damage done by these policies may also be irreversible. I believe there is too much at stake, and far too much to lose, for us to allow bad policies and reckless spending to remain unchecked or unchallenged. And so we will fight for a dramatic change in priority and direction.
“Republicans have a Pledge to America. A Pledge to prevent tax hikes, to reduce federal spending, and to work every day to repeal the massive new health care law and replace it with commonsense reforms that lower costs. If you are tired of Washington’s broken promises, you now have a choice. More of the same or a new direction.”
