As White House spokesperson Josh Earnest is blaming China and Chinese policies for the on-going market crash and selloff, GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says strong economic policies aren’t built by empowering Washington, D.C. and Wall Street elites.
Prior to a campaign in Little Rock, Arkansas Monday afternoon, Huckabee released the following statement:
You don’t build a strong economy by empowering Washington-Wall Street elites at the expense of American workers on Main Street and sadly the chickens are now coming home to roost for the Obama administration and its failed economic policies.
It’s time to build America’s economy, not China’s or Mexico’s and quit importing cheap labor and exporting jobs overseas, driving the wages of American workers lower than the Dead Sea! As president, I’ll implement the FairTax to let workers keep their entire paycheck and bring trillions of dollars in offshore investment and manufacturing back to the U.S., growing our economy and creating good jobs and real prosperity for American workers.
