Hartzler:Obama Administration needs to abandon failed policies

The Obama Administration policies, as well as those of Nancy Pelosi and Ike Skelton, have failed, according to Vicky Hartzler, who hopes to be the GOP challenger to Skelton in November:

Sadly, the President doesn't or won't understand what Missourians know, that the failing policies his administration has been proposing need to be abandoned, not pushed further. He advocated continued support for failed policies advanced by Congressman Skelton and Nancy Pelosi. Both are out of touch with the wishes of the Heartland.

The job-killing cap-and-trade legislation would only further destroy small businesses and impose one of the largest across-the-board tax increases in our nation’s history. Mr. Skelton was one of four deciding votes to pass the bill in the House. If honored to cast the vote for Missouri’s Fourth District, I will oppose this radical and destructive power grab in any form.

President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Ike Skelton clearly don’t understand that the way to create jobs is not to redistribute wealth from one class of taxpayers to another. Refusing to cut taxes on business owners who make over $250,000 is a policy representative of this administration’s flawed approach to governance and economics. While he is talking out of both sides of his mouth about prioritizing jobs, the legislative priorities of the Obama-Pelosi-Skelton team kills jobs during a time when our economy still suffers and unemployment remains at long-time highs.

The President says he was for national security yet supports measures to further put us at risk including cuts to missile defense programs, prosecuting terrorists in criminal court, and reinstating the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy. Ike Skelton has allowed the military to be used earlier to pass Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda. What will he do now?
