I’m always pleased when a President of the United States finds time to visit Arizona. Given President Obama’s recent interest in job creation and economic recovery, he certainly came to the right state at the right time. The “Arizona Comeback” is in full-swing, and this was the President’s opportunity to witness firsthand a true economic success story. However, I am disappointed that the President used his visit as an opportunity to lay out a plan for even more big government programs, while also trying to share credit for Arizona’s housing and economic recovery. That credit belongs to the hardworking people of Arizona.
