HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason Chairman released the following statement on the third anniversary of President Barack Obama signing the stimulus bill into law:
“Three years hasn’t camouflaged the hard truth that President Obama’s massive stimulus spending bill has been a complete failure,” said Chairman Gleason.
“Just three short years ago, President Obama and Senator Bob Casey promised that their $825 billion stimulus bill would save or create 3.5 million jobs and keep unemployment below 8% – but since then, we’ve lost more than one million jobs and unemployment has remained above 8% for a record period. What’s even worse is that while Americans are demanding a more responsible, efficient government, President Obama’s 2012 budget calls for even more spending and even more taxes.
“Pennsylvania voters have had enough of President Obama’s and Senator Casey’s failed promises and out of control spending. It’s time for new leadership in Washington that can keep spending under control and actually improve our economy, not another four years of economic hardship,” Chairman Gleason continued.
