“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.”
Landry is a freshman Representative from the very southern tip of Louisiana. His website is here. His Facebook page is here. Twitter feed is here.
In his statement he also said:
“Until the president produces a responsible deficit reduction plan, I’m not going to the White House to negotiate with myself. Our conference has put out for months where we would start the process,”
Read the rest to see what he has to say about Obama's attention to the people of south Louisiana. If Landry continues to stick by his guns like this, he'll do well in my book.
