Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) made the following statement regarding Organizing for Action, President Obama's political organization, visits to his Cullman and Gadsden District Offices today.
"President Obama's political organization Organizing for Action's mission is a perfect example of the disconnect between the Obama Administration's policies and America's sluggish, jobless recovery," said Aderholt. "While Obama's Organizing for Action is showing concern about the climate change debate, hardworking Alabamians and I are concerned with our nation's dismal jobs climate."
"Alabama is now the third largest manufacturer of automobiles in the country and continues to be a bright spot in our nation's economic recovery, because of our skilled workforce and relatively low energy costs. However, job creators are fighting an uphill battle against an out-of-touch Administration that thinks burdensome Washington regulations will somehow lead to job growth."
"The biggest denial is that the Obama Administration's burdensome EPA regulations that have increased the cost of manufacturing and doing business, that Obamacare driving up the cost of healthcare and crippling hiring, and catering to special interest groups like those that are stalling the Keystone Pipeline are not the root cause our nation's dismal jobs climate."
"The only climate we should be talking about today is this country's stalled economic and jobs climate. It is time for groups like Organizing for Action to understand the continued impact of this President's policies and that they directly produced the worst economic recovery in modern history," concluded Aderholt.
Aderholt currently serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee, is a member of the Committee's Commerce, Justice and Science; and Homeland Security Subcommittees, and also serves on the Helsinki Commission.
