4th Congressional District Republican candidate Vicky Hartzler agrees with U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner that top economic officials, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and adviser Larry Summers, should be fired. But Hartzler views getting rid of Geithner and Summers only as a vital first step.
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pelosi-captive votes like Ike Skelton's have done more harm to America than Geithner and Summers," said Hartzler. "The fresh start America so desperately needs should begin right now with those in the Obama Administration being held responsible for their failed policies. From there we go after the architects of economic ruin in Congress, who put fiscally reckless and job destroying proposals into law. That includes Nancy Pelosi and liberal-voting Ike Skelton. Pelosi's reckless antics have this country on the wrong track and Ike Skelton has been riding shotgun all the way on her senseless spending spree."
Ike Skelton and Nancy Pelosi cannot run and hide from the Democrats' disconnect with mainstream America. Federal government statistics indicate job losses continue to mount as U.S. bankruptcy filings have reached their highest level since 2005. Add to this the sad fact that the number of Americans receiving federal aid through food stamps has grown to record highs, soaring to 40.8 million in May.
"People are hurting as a result of the failed Skelton-Pelosi policies," said Hartzler. "It's time to make a change in Washington. We can't wait any longer to end the misery."
No jobs and more people dependent on government. It's bad enough that Ike Skelton has happily engaged in taking our country down the road to economic ruin, but he still refuses to join Vicky Hartzler in a series of forums designed to give citizens the chance to ask the congressman why he has green-lighted Nancy Pelosi's ultra-liberal agenda.
