Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker told The Daily Caller in a weekend interview that President Barack Obama “measures success by how many people are ultimately dependent on the government.”
“What I’ve seen thus far suggests he [Obama] does not care about truly balancing the budget,” Walker told TheDC during the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. “What I think we’ve seen increasingly is more of a political agenda, and one in which he measures success by how many people are ultimately dependent on the government.”
“I think we measure success by just the opposite: by how many fewer people are dependent on the government, not because we kicked them out on the streets, but we’ve empowered them to control their own destiny through the dignity of work that comes from a job in the private sector,” he explained.
