“However, no amount of presidential pivots and speech making will change the fact that too many Illinoisans are out of work. It doesn’t have to be this way.

“House Republicans have never strayed from our focus on creating jobs and strengthening our economy.

“We are developing a tax reform package for individuals and businesses that would increase American competitiveness in the global economy.

“We have passed a jobs and skills training package, approved the Keystone XL Pipeline, acted to protect families and individuals from a costly healthcare law and put forth a plan to permanently fix our student loan crisis.

“These proposals would immediately and demonstrably boost the economy, and set the foundation for long-term growth.

“We agree with the president, too many Americans are struggling in today’s economy, and we stand ready to work toward real, bipartisan solutions, not listen to another stump speech.”

  1. The Campaigner and Chief stumps for the 2014 Midterms, nothing more.

    In true Illinois Pol fashion, he takes no responsibility by blaming ‘broken Washington’.

    Offering more 2008 and 2012 drivel, that the legions of idiots voted for and no doubt would pull the lever again, if they could in 2016.

    Obama babbles about redistribution and the average voting rube loves him for it.
