Freshman Republican Jeff Landry (LA), on why he passed up a chance to meet with the President:
“I have respectfully declined the president’s invitation to the White House today,” Rep. Jeff Landry (La.) said in a statement. “I don’t intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt.”
Worse, Landry would have been tediously lectured to… although I must admit that President Obama is a bit of an expert on debt. After all, he’s had plenty of recent hands-on experience in creating it.
