Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding President Obama's trip to Texas to promote job growth:
"Despite the Obama Administration's failed policies and damage done to the nation's economy, I was delighted that President Obama was traveling to Texas so he could learn how Texas has been creating more jobs than it loses. One of the things that makes Texas the leader in American job growth is our low taxes, rational regulations, and a balanced budget approach.
However, I was deeply saddened to find out President Obama did not come to learn but to lecture our state against our own successful common-sense approach to reigning in the invasive government. It's almost as bad as dramatically cutting back drilling for oil and gas on federal land, while taking credit for increased production on private land that he had also been impeding."
