Congressman Boehner appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday to talk about replacing the president’s sequester with smarter cuts, and the need for reform to create a fairer, simpler tax code that helps bring home jobs that have been driven overseas in recent years. Below are several key excerpts.
Washington Democrats still haven’t passed a plan to replace the president’s sequester, but that’s not holding them back from spreading fear about its impact. In an interview yesterday evening with 10TV Columbus, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood doubled-down on several dubious claims:
With momentum in Ohio moving steadily in Republicans’ direction, Governor Mitt Romney, Congressman Paul Ryan, and top Republican leaders are headed to Speaker Boehner’s hometown in Butler County to kick off the final 72-hour push in the race for the White House on Friday evening. CNN reports that “Aside from Boehner, featured guests… include former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain of Arizona.”
Yesterday, the Columbus Dispatch endorsed Governor Mitt Romney for President of the United States.
Last week, Vice President Biden doubled down on the president’s plan to raise taxes on small businesses that threatens more than 700,000 jobs nationwide and more than 27,000 in Ohio. It's just more of the same failed leadership from this administration that's left millions of Americans asking, "where are the jobs?"
Today’s dismal jobs report only highlights the failed economic policies of the Obama Administration – which promised that if a Democratic Congress passed their trillion-dollar “stimulus” spending binge, unemployment this month would decline to 5.6% - and underscores the need for new leadership in Washington, D.C.
