Though it wasn’t surprising, it was disappointing that most of the Kansas delegation responded so stridently to President Obama’s jobs speech. They complained about Obama “doubling down on these job-destroying policies” (Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita) and pushing “the same failed policies” (Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.). It’s fine to disagree with specific proposals (though, as Obama noted, many of the ideas have been supported by Republicans in the past), but both sides need to ratchet down the partisan rhetoric. As Obama asked, can we “stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy”?
