Graham: 'People need certainty' about economy

The nation’s sluggish economy and dismal employment picture are unlikely to improve until President Obama shifts course from his policies that are “stifling” to both, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday.

During an interview on CNN, Graham was highly critical of the president’s handling of the bleak economic situation, and said the 2012 race for the White House is the Republicans’ to lose.

Obama’s health care, job-creation and tax policies “will stifle job growth until they change,” Graham said, adding the president’s policy approach in each area has created too much uncertainty for businesses and individuals.
