Democrats fire back at Barrasso

Jackson, Wy – A day after U-S Senator John Barrasso attacked the Obama administration on a number of fronts, state Democrats are striking back. Barrasso was very critical of President Obama's release of documents detailing CIA interrogation techniques and said he was offended by a variety of things the administration has been doing including putting the country in Debt. But State Democratic Chairwoman Leslie Peterson says Barrasso's comments miss some facts. "Senator Barrasso ignores the fact that Obama's leadership has resulted in lower taxes for 95% of Americans. And balances taxes more fairly between the middle class and the wealthy. We hope that he will stick to the facts in the future. Peterson says Barrasso's comments lacked civility.
