When Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Monday, he remarked to the show’s host that he didn’t need to read the New York Times to know that people are concerned about jobs.
Host Joe Scarborough read a portion of a New York Times op-ed, describing the president’s disconnection with the needs of the public, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
It indicated that the three issues President Obama is pushing the most in his second term — immigration, gun control and climate change — are the very issues Americans care about the least per a Pew Research Center. Topping the list of Americans’ concerns was the economy.
“Look, I didn’t need to read the New York Times to know that,” the former GOP vice presidential candidate said. “I spent all last fall crisscrossing this country talking to Americans. I represent Wisconsin. That’s all I hear from constituents. I, just in the last recess, did a series of town hall meetings. Jobs, jobs jobs. I talked about immigration because I think we have a broken system that needs fixing, but at the top of everybody’s list is how can I make ends meet.”
