WASHINGTON, DC – Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) today announced that he has asked Congressional candidate Ann Wagner (MO-2) to deliver the Weekly Republican Address on Saturday, October 27.
“Americans want a real agenda to create jobs and long-term growth, but President Obama is offering nothing but excuses, gimmicks, and the same failed economic polices that have buried middle class families over the past four years,” Speaker Boehner said. “We can do better. Ann Wagner grew up working alongside her parents at her family’s business, and she understands that real economic recovery won’t happen until we stop out of control Washington spending and get government out of the way of small business job creators. Like Governor Romney and Republicans running for Congress across our great nation, Ann Wagner has the courage to lead, and I’m looking forward to hearing her address.”
“As a first-time candidate, I do a lot of listening,” Ann Wagner said. “People here in the heartland know we can’t afford another four years of President Obama’s economic policies that have resulted in fewer jobs, more red tape and skyrocketing debt. I’m running for Congress because it’s time for a new approach. By expanding American energy production and stopping the president’s small business tax hikes, we can help job creators thrive and grow. I’m honored to have the opportunity to talk more about these and other solutions for jobs in this week’s address.”
