Texas GOP Chairman Tom Mechler’s Statement on President Obama Visiting Austin, Texas


Friday, March 11, 2016


Austin- “By now it’s not surprising to see our lame duck President skip a former first lady’s funeral to attend a music festival and fundraiser in Austin. Over the past seven years Texans have grown accustomed to watching President Obama play a lot of golf and attend fundraisers while the economy fails to recover and our foreign policy is in shambles. What is more surprising is the fact that the President can’t take time out of his day to stop by the VA’s office in Austin where there have been multiple reports of manipulated wait time data. Unfortunately, for this President it seems fundraising and giving speeches take priority over our veterans. Texas veterans in central and south Texas deserve better than that.”
