Todd Akin isn’t a big fan of meeting with people when they want to talk about his intolerant comments about liberalism representing a “hatred for God” or his urge to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
Steve Taylor, a spokesperson for Akin, said the congressman will not be in attendance Wednesday but still values efforts to create more jobs.
“Congressman Todd Akin ... agrees that jobs and the security of American families should be the number one priority in Washington, which is why he has worked assiduously to reduce wasteful government spending and eliminate needless and burdensome regulations on job creators," Taylor said in a written statement, which referred to the meeting as a "protest."
However, it is good to see that he will take a bold stance and support jobs for people. Maybe he can get behind the Human Fund, which supports “money for people.”
