Congressman Tim Huelskamp

Representing the 1st District of Kansas

Enough of the Class Warfare Mr. President

Press Release

WASHINGTON – Following President Obama’s speech today regarding the extension of "emergency" unemployment benefits, Representative Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) released the following statement:

“This President is misleading America again. He drums up class warfare to create division and hides the real issue: Obama's economic ‘recovery’ is the worst since The Great Depression. Too many Americans are hurting because they cannot find jobs in this anemic Obama economy. Instead of leading the way in job creation and strengthening the economy, he touts five years of job killing legislation–from his war on coal to his war on small business through ObamaCare.

“Today’s speech was merely a distraction from the worst labor market since Jimmy Carter. Getting Americans back to work—not electing Democrats—is what matters.  Too many House-passed jobs bills and conservative solutions remain waiting on Senate Democrats and President Obama to take action. Enough of the silly speeches and the lies, Mr. President: a speech doesn’t create jobs, but your bad policies are killing them."
