President Obama and Democrats in Congress “have shown an appalling lack of leadership when it comes to the most pressing issues of our time,” a Georgia Congressman said this week.
“They have been unwilling to bring forth concrete proposals of their own that would actually contribute in a positive way to the debate over how we get America moving again,” U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., said in a statement.
“Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has passed several pieces of legislation that would help spur job creation, address the pain caused by higher gas prices, and encourage innovation,” Price added. “We have taken action to remove the regulatory burdens imposed by this Administration, to reform the tax code so that American entrepreneurs can compete, and to instill confidence in our economy. … Rather than continuing to demagogue the good faith efforts of House Republicans, the President ought to answer the call of leadership.”
