AFP Wisconsin Statement On President Obama’s Visit To La Crosse
Chapter Encourages President To Take Wisconsin’s Free Market Reforms Back With Him to D.C.
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin, the state’s foremost advocate for economic freedom, released the following statement in response to President Obama’s visit to the University of Wisconsin La Crosse today:
“It’s ironic the President came to speak about overtime, given that his disastrous healthcare law has made full-time work, let alone overtime work, more difficult to come by,” said Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin State Director Eric Bott. “Wisconsinites have already suffered the consequences of his big-government agenda which has resulted in fewer hours worked, lost jobs and skyrocketing healthcare premiums.”
“While the President is here, I hope he gets the chance to see firsthand the positive impact that free market reforms can have on an economy. In Wisconsin, we’ve been freeing workers with right-to-work, protecting taxpayers by fighting for prevailing wage reform, and expanding economic freedom to every corner of the state. The President has been doing the exact opposite. It’s no coincidence that Wisconsin’s employment level is near an all-time high: it’s because free market reforms work. We hope the President will get to see the successes we’ve had here in Wisconsin and take those policies back with him to Washington.”
