Speaker Boehner on GDP Report: President Has Failed to Lead

On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) cited the disappointing report on GDP as further evidence of President Obama’s failure to lead and the need for presidential leadership that will lead Washington towards solutions that get our economy moving again:

“Weak economic growth is the result of weak leadership from President Obama, whose failed policies have hurt small businesses and driven jobs overseas while Americans are left asking ‘where are the jobs?’  Experts and leaders in both parties know we won’t have economic growth until we address the cloud of debt that is hanging over our economy.   We certainly won’t have growth if we impose President Obama’s tax hike on small businesses which, according to Ernst & Young, would destroy more than 700,000 jobs...

Despite the success of and enormous public support for work requirements, the Obama administration wants to waive these work requirements. That’s not only illegal; it will hurt the very people the president claims he wants to help. That’s why the House voted last week to block this action... (READ MORE)
