Republicans should provide constructive ways to help the country rather than “screaming” on Fox News, according to Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)

At a breakfast meeting organized by the Concerned Veterans for America and The Weekly Standard, he said the Republican Party was turning away voters by ignoring joblessness and appearing “very angry.”

“When you talk to the American people, and try to bring our vision, that Reagan vision of a ‘shining city on a hill,’ but you’re doing it screaming on Fox News Channel all the time, screaming and yelling on all these cable news channels and being angry, you’re not drawing Americans to your vision. Instead, what you’re doing is showing anger,” he told the audience.

He also advised his own party to focus on creating jobs rather than reducing the federal debt. Kinzinger said Americans were more concerned with joblessness at this point than the budget. Raising employment levels, he added, would help reduce the deficit.
