Price Comments on President Obama's Trip to Georgia


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement today in response to President Obama's visit to the State of Georgia:

"Today, I welcome President Obama to the great state of Georgia -- home of the Atlanta Braves and refreshing Coca-Cola.

"But, we're also home to an 8.6 percent unemployment rate. Because of President Obama's failed policies, hundreds of thousands of hard-working and enterprising Georgians can't find a job and countless more have stopped looking all-together.

"After four years of the president's promises that greater government spending and regulations would bring relief and a real recovery, Georgia families and small businesses are facing a future of higher health care costs, higher taxes and less economic certainty. Even the most basic necessities are more expensive. When President Obama took office, Georgia families were paying approximately $1.72 per gallon of gas. Today, it's $3.58, taking a larger bite out of a family's budget.

"It is clear that President Obama's policies are making life more difficult at a time when folks need relief. The people of Georgia are resilient and optimistic. We ought to honor their entrepreneurial spirit by advancing pro-growth policies that limit the size and scope of government, empowering individuals to live, work and raise their families as they pursue the American Dream."
