The President’s Legacy of Failureby Representative Joe Wilson
Posted on 2016-01-12
WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, this evening the President
will address Congress and the American people and will defend his
legacy of failure in jobs, national defense, and more gun control.
The President's legacy has destroyed jobs and has increased regulations that cripple small business. He should change course to support creating jobs and reducing unnecessary regulations, and he should repeal ObamaCare.
The President's legacy overseas--abandoning Iraq, not upholding the red line in Syria, and opposing a NATO training force in Libya--allowed ISIS to grow, with children fleeing, drowning at sea.
The President should change course to actually destroy ISIS. American families need a positive plan for victory in the global war on terrorism.
The President's legacy of more gun control would not have stopped any of the mass attacks. The President should change course to reform mental health and to stop terrorists from attacking American families.
I join the rest of America in hoping the President offers a positive agenda for the American people tonight, not more Big Government failure.
In conclusion, God bless our troops, and may the President, by his actions, never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
