Aderholt Statement on the President's Visit to Alabama

March 26, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement in regard to President Obama’s visit to Alabama.


"President Obama is looking to regulate the symptoms of the years of sluggish economic recovery instead of addressing the root causes. An overreaching EPA is closing coal fired steam plants and the jobs that go with it. Unfair trade practices are wreaking havoc in the steel and iron industries. It appears that Obamacare is driving up the cost of healthcare for millions and millions of people, while shrinking their paychecks.  

"These policies have caused companies to lose jobs as close as the steel plant just 20 minutes from where the President's plane landed. Instead of speaking to those workers today's ceremony is about more regulations. It is time to think about growing this economy instead of adding Band-Aid regulations.”

In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
