Rep. Price: High Unemployment Indicative of Obama’s Failed Policies

The 8.2 percent unemployment rate that the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed last week is proof that President Barack Obama’s policies are failing, Georgia Republican Rep. Tom Price charged on “Fox News Sunday.”

Price said Obama is hindering job growth by penalizing small businesses and rejecting programs that would put Americans back to work.

“Keystone pipeline, for example,” he said. “The president refuses to allow that. This is going to create 20 [thousand] to 200,000 jobs, doesn’t cost Washington a dime, and the president won’t allow it.”

Price said the House of Representatives, when it convenes this week after a summer break, will pass legislation by the end of July to block the estimated $500 billion in tax increases looming in 2013.

The legislation is “something that Gov. [Mitt] Romney supports because he believes that that will stimulate the economy and provide certainty out there in the job market,” he said.

On the issue of Obamacare, Price said the Supreme Court’s ruling on the federal healthcare law doesn’t mean it is a sound policy.

“The president’s law takes us in the wrong direction,” Price, an orthopedic surgeon, said. “It violates all of the principles we hold dear in healthcare.”

He said the House will vote — again — to overturn the legislation to highlight its belief that patients and doctors are the ones who should be making family medical decisions, not Washington.

“The people understand that they don’t want Washington running their healthcare,” Price said. “Just because it’s constitutional doesn’t make it the right policy for the land.”
