U.S. Senate candidate David Dewhurst released the following statement today regarding President Barack Obama's visit to Texas:
"President Obama is using Texas as an ATM, the same way he's using taxpayers' hard-earned dollars to spend our country into oblivion. President Obama is the most serious threat to America since World War II. Through his disastrous and reckless policies like Obamacare, it seems Obama is trying to mirror America in the image of Europe. If we do not change the path we're on, Obama will kill our economy, spend America into bankruptcy, and relegate us to a failed future. In order to restore our economy and put Americans back to work, we need a complete transformation of how our government works. We need leaders who will get government out of the way and allow the private sector to flourish. As a lifelong businessman, I will go to Washington with the experience to create an environment that will permit businesses to grow and create jobs, and with a proven record of implementing conservative principles to get our country back on track."
