The President traveled around the country bragging that the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8%, but the real story is that the economy created a weak 114,000 jobs, leaving 12.1 million workers out of work. This is the same story we have heard for the last four years, and the American people are tired of it.
The truth is, that we know how to get our economy moving again – help small business owners create jobs! But, so far, the President and Democrat leaders in Washington have been unwilling to do that. Many small business owners are reluctant to hire new workers because they have been saddled with new regulations and business requirements in health insurance, small-business finance, environment, energy, and tax compliance make it too expensive to expand.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will change the anti-business attitude of the federal government. They will help millions of Americans get back to work. I'm excited to have the chance to work with them to do just that! We can and must do better and with your vote this election, we will!
