As President Obama prepares to give the State of the Union Address, reports suggest the focus of the speech will be the same old song calling for more government action. Over the course of this Presidency, we have repeatedly heard the call for more spending, more taxation and more regulation.
Does anyone really think that more government intervention is the answer to today’s economic malaise? Particularly after the doomed roll out of the Obamacare website?
This is the President’s sixth such address, some other numbers come to mind:
62.8: The percent of Americans in the labor force as of December 2013. This represents the lowest labor participation rate this nation has seen since Jimmy Carter was President.
Over $54,000: The debt owed by every man, woman and child in America.
22,000: The number of Granite Staters who were told their health insurance would be canceled because they did not adhere to Obamacare’s requirements.
Frank Guinta candidate for Congress in New Hampshire's 1st district said, "Instead of doubling down on these failed policies, Washington should focus its efforts on trusting America’s entrepreneurs, balancing its budget, enacting pro-growth tax reform and eliminating harmful regulations like Obamacare. The latter of which increases taxes on the middle class, strangles job growth and is causing people to lose their health insurance."
"We can and must do better."
