Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones has issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s appearance in Warrensburg today.
“Our nation would be in a better place if, instead of spending all his time giving speeches filled with unrealized rhetoric about a better America, President Obama would actually work with Republicans to address the enormous problems facing our nation. Under his leadership, our national debt has soared to $16.7 trillion and median income and wages have continued to plummet. Even Democrats are running as fast as they can away from the destructive Obamacare law. It is very telling that the Democrats’ 2016 standard-bearer for Missouri, Chris Koster, will not even be seen with President Obama. The Obama agenda is so extreme that it is toxic for Koster’s election prospects. Attorney General Koster might think he can fool Missourians, but all remember that Governor Nixon did the same thing and now, after the election, he is standing united with the Obama agenda. Instead of hiding, Attorney General Koster should tell Missourians where he stands on the Obama administration’s failed policies.”
