Hensarling welcomes President Obama to Texas

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON – Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), a leading conservative and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, issued the following statement in response to President Obama's trip to Texas to discuss his administration's plan to create jobs.

"I think it's ironic that the president decided to start his jobs tour in Texas considering the things that make our state a leader in job creation – low taxes, sensible regulations, and a balanced budget – seem to be foreign concepts to the President. In fact, from the excessive regulations in legislation he considers his landmark achievements like the Dodd-Frank Act and Obamacare to the $1.6 trillion in additional taxes he has added to the economy over the next 10 years and the 58 percent increase in our national debt since he took office, one might wonder why the President is visiting Texas at all since he doesn't seem to believe in our model for job creation.
 
"I hope the President will spend his time in Texas talking to hardworking taxpayers like the single mom from Chandler who wrote me recently saying that she is struggling to make ends meet due to tax increases and the rising cost of gas and insurance. I hope he will hear from Texas job creators like the Palestine plant operator who told me when I visited his business recently that out of control regulations from Washington and the uncertainty they bring make it nearly impossible to expand his business and hire more workers.
 
"If the President will truly listen to the people of Texas, maybe he will come back to Washington ready and willing to work with us to truly address the economic challenges that threaten job creation."
