Barrasso also took time to blame Obama for the increase in gas prices, as well as, lower competitiveness rankings for the United States.

“In terms of global competitiveness, the United States has dropped for four straight years. When President Obama took office, we were number one in the world. Now we’re number seven,” Barrasso said.

The Senator also said, “American businesses are at a competitive disadvantage because our tax rates are the highest in the developed world. Americans know what works: low taxes, reasonable regulations, and living within our means."
