June 25, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement noting the rough week ahead for the Obama Administration:
"Obama is already having a really bad week. With the Supreme Court upholding the key provision in Arizona's immigration law, reaffirming the Citizens United ruling protecting free speech this time at the state level, and with the ruling on Obamacare imminent, the judiciary is striking mortal blows to the Obama agenda. This is an important reminder that elections do matter, and that whoever occupies the White House and fills the federal bench is critical.
"But that's not all. The House will likely hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt later this week, leading to a case in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia to obtain the hidden Fast and Furious documents. This, after the White House has astoundingly claimed executive privilege over documents involving low-level Justice Department officials that had nothing to do with Oval Office deliberations.
"Finally, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel rejecting Eurobonds to prop up socialist governments in Europe and the banks that lent to them, now markets are tanking once again. Merkel's restraint is a direct challenge to Obama's attempts to impose his vision of unending deficits and debts on the peoples of Europe. Obama is powerless to prevent global financial shocks from jeopardizing the U.S. economy because he refuses to lead the fight for fiscal sanity here in America.
"All in all, this is shaping up to be another very bad week politically for Obama. Sadly, his economic failings are costing every American, making it a very bad week for all of us."
