Iowa GOP Chairman Responds to
President Obama’s Trip to Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa– The Republican Party of Iowa released the following statement from Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker in response to the announcement of President Obama’s latest taxpayer-funded campaign stops in Iowa:

“Taxpayers in Iowa are fed up with having to finance President Obama’s campaign stops while at the same time they are suffering as a result of his failed economic policies. What President Obama won’t talk about next week in his speeches filled with lofty promises is that under his watch real median household income has dropped over $4,000 and half of recent college grads are either unemployed or underemployed.

“Rather than jaunt around Iowa using taxpayer money, President Obama should explain to Iowans why his budget has failed to garner a single vote in Congress and why he has added an unconscionable $5 Trillion to the national debt after promising to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term.”
