Walker: ‘We’ve Had a Novice In the White House’ and ‘It Hasn’t Worked’

Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker argued “you need someone who’s been tested” because “we’ve had a novice in the White House for the last six-and-a-half-plus years” on Tuesday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”

Walker, while discussing the US’ standing in world economic freedom standings said the US’ poor ranking is “all the more reason why we need a leader who’s not afraid to take action immediately.” Walker pointed to Wisconsin joining the federal lawsuit against Obamacare and him calling a special session to deal with the state’s economy and fiscal situation on his first day in office.

He continued, “What we need in America, now more than ever, is a president who’s not afraid to take action immediately. Not just to lower and reform the tax code, lower the tax burden, but literally to reign in the out of control regulations, EPA being the worst, but there are many, many, many thousand more regulations out there that need to be reigned in immediately. As president, I’m prepared to do that.”

Walker then stated, “You need a plan of action, and you need someone who’s been tested. You know, a novice, we’ve had a novice in the White House for the last six-and-a-half-plus years. We’ve seen how well that has worked. It hasn’t worked at all. It’s not working for American families. It’s not working for American workers. We need someone who’s going to stand up and get the government out the way so the people of this country and their families can get back to work again.”

Later, Walker said that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s criticisms of him, “kind of tells you who they fear most, someone who doesn’t just talk, but gets things done.”
