Braley & Obama Agree That Midterm Elections Are A Referendum On The President

 

DES MOINES – President Obama and Congressman Braley agree on most things – ObamaCare, amnesty and higher taxes – and yesterday they agreed on what the midterm elections are all about: A referendum on the President’s agenda.

During his 2010 midterm election, Congressman Braley proudly said that his election was a referendum on the President and yesterday the President echoed similar remarks.

“Congressman Braley and Barack Obama already agree on ObamaCare and amnesty and now they both agree that this election is a referendum on the President’s failed policies,” said Republican Party of Iowa spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “If you support amnesty or ObamaCare, then there’s no better man who will continuing rubberstamping Barack Obama’s failed agenda than Congressman Braley.”
