I find it outrageous that the person representing us in Washington apparently knows nothing about the president’s accomplishments, a few of which are listed below:
— After three and a half years of disastrous job losses under the previous administration, the president signed the Recovery Act shortly after taking office. We are now in our 23rd consecutive month of private sector jobs growth.
— The private sector has added 3.7 million jobs in those 23 months.
— Despite fierce Republican obstruction, the president pushed through a tax cut, saving the average family $1,000 in 2011.
— Tax incentives for businesses that hire unemployed veterans have been established.
— The president’s emergency loan plan, strongly disparaged by our representative and his party, has saved our Michigan-based auto industry and hundreds of thousands of jobs. Ford, Chrysler and GM are still viable. Moreover, they are now profitable for the first time in years.
— Under the president’s leadership, we have extricated ourselves from Iraq, and have eliminated bin Laden and dozens of the worlds most despicable terrorists.
— Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, hundreds of thousands of young American adults are still able to receive health coverage on their family’s policies.
One can only wonder: Does Mr. Huizenga truly not know about the positive accomplishments happening under the Obama administration? Does he know but refuse to acknowledge when good things happen in our country? Either way, we in Michigan deserve better from our representative. We deserve far better.
Where is the Huizenga list of accomplishments? Shouldn’t there be one?
