GOP Rep: Obama Has an ‘Addiction to Spending’


Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) said Tuesday that President Barack Obama is “roaming the country” in a quest for tax increases to “pay for his addiction to spending.”

“We have a spending problem and yet the president continues to want to raise taxes,” Jenkins said during a press conference on Capitol Hill. “He got $1 trillion in taxes with his health care bill; he got nearly $700 billion at the beginning of the year; and now he’s roaming the country talking about closing loopholes.”

“That I am pleased to hear because Republicans in the House have been talking about closing loopholes as a part of fundamental comprehensive tax reform for the last 2 years,” she said.
