The president gave a speech today in Cleveland about his economic plans and policies. Here’s one reaction (via The Hill):
“President Obama and others in Washington need to realize that we cannot spend our way to prosperity and that to in order to create jobs, we need to address unfair trade deals that ship jobs overseas and enact policies that allow us to take advantage of our vast natural resources such as coal and natural gas in a safe and responsible manner which will lower energy costs and create jobs. Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline would be a good first step.”
And that’s from a Democrat — Pennsylvania congressman Mark Critz.
When Obama said today he would “work with anyone of any party” to improve the economy, I guess he didn’t mean Critz. Or the entire GOP caucus, which has been saying the same thing as Critz for a couple of years now.
