Stitt’s Government Overreach Hypocrisy

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, September 16, 2021 – Stitt is crying government overreach as the Biden administration works tirelessly to curb the pandemic and save lives.

“Stitt has been missing in action as cases and hospitalizations surge in our state. His only response to Biden’s mandates to protect Americans is to claim government overreach – a violation of freedom and state rights. At the same time, the Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that Stitt has overreached his own authority in tribal gaming compacts and his managed Medicaid plan,” commented Alicia Andrews, Chair of the Oklahoma Democratic Party.

“Stitt and the Republicans are only interested in their own partisan agendas, not working to protect Oklahomans, especially our children. Stitt’s faux outrage over President Biden’s tireless efforts to protect the safety of all Americans is so very disappointing.

“If Stitt were truly concerned about government overreach, he would be focusing his attention on his own hypocritical actions, stop overstepping his authority, and circumventing the legislators’ responsibilities,” Andrews said. “Oklahomans deserve a leader who respects the process and cares about our citizens. Stitt’s time is up,” Andrews concluded.
