McHenry criticizes Obama as he visits Asheville

Here’s the press release from Rep. Patrick McHenry, who represents the 10th District, which includes Asheville:

Asheville, N.C. – President Barack Obama will travel to western North Carolina today to advocate policies promoted during his State of the Union address. Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following remarks in advance of the President’s visit:

“Once again, President Obama is flying down to North Carolina to push his economic agenda. The last time he touted his economy in NC, he visited Freightliner in Mount Holly. Six months later, they announced over one thousand layoffs. No matter how many times he says otherwise, President Obama’s policies are hurting small and large businesses in North Carolina. His barrage of tax hikes and new regulations is stifling economic growth, not encouraging it.”
