Goodman: Obama is not listening to the American people

Sen. Jack Goodman, R-Mount Vernon, a candidate for the Seventh District Congressional seat issued the following statement after President Obama's State of the Union message:

"Southwest Missourians are looking for real solutions to our very real problems like job-loss and out of control government spending. Tonight, we did not hear any solutions; just more rhetoric. Sadly, President Obama and those that run Washington D.C. are not listening to the American people.

Americans are putting politicians on notice that they will no longer stand by while Congress recklessly spends their tax dollars on bailouts, stimulus bills and federal healthcare takeovers. While I commend the president for proposing a spending freeze for next year, we need to pass a balanced budget amendment, implement a moratorium on all earmarks and an immediate across the board spending freeze on non-essential services to return America to a sound financial foundation.

Until we see this administration actually leading on things like deficit and debt reduction, healthcare solutions with patients driving the marketplace, job creation and getting back to the free market principles that have made our nation great, America will be prevented from achieving its greatest potential and putting families back to work."

So Jack, what are your solutions. Let me guess, you want to cut taxes, pass silly resolutions that do nothing and take a pot load of lobbyist money. Did I guess right???

i wonder who those american people are that obama isn't listening to. i listened to his state of the union. seemed like he had a very good grasp of what the people want.

i listened to his acceptance speech and never did he say he was not if favor of health insurance. in fact, he said he was in favor of health insurance for everyone.
also, never did he say he was against obama. what he said was he was against washington. if you look at the surveys taken by the t.v. networks, more people were opposed to the republican's direction. i find that interesting since they hold a minority.

Hey Jack, how come you didn't do these thing you want now when you were in power?
Oh, in MO your still in power.
Did you tell bush to quit spending money in the wrong country and fix the deficit? No you didn't Jack because you and your whole party are the worst enemy of "we the people" in the world.
