Recovery or Dependency? There is a clear choice.

Press Release from the RNC after the audio of an Obama speech was posted online.

Good morning, while Governor Romney talks about promoting personal responsibility and hard work, promising to deliver recovery, President Obama believes in redistribution and government dependency.

Obama In 1998: “I Actually Believe In Redistribution”

Obama: “Let me just close by saying as we think about the policy research surrounding the issues that I just named, the policy research for the working poor, broadly defined. I think that what we are going to have to do is somehow resuscitate the notion that government action can be effective at all. There has been a systematic – I don’t think it’s too strong to call it a propaganda campaign against the possibility of government action and its efficacy. And I think some of it has been deserved. Chicago Housing Authority has not been a model of good policymaking. And neither necessarily have been the Chicago Public Schools. What that means that as we try to resuscitate this notion that we’re all in this together, leave nobody behind. We do have to be innovative in thinking how – what are the delivery systems that are actually effective and meet people where they live? And my suggestion I guess would be that the trick – and this is one of the few areas where I think there are technical issues that have to be dealt with as opposed to just political issues. I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence, facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level to make sure everybody’s got a shot.” (State Senator Barack Obama, Remarks At Loyola University Panel, Chicago, IL, 10/19/98)

Obama’s Job Record in North Carolina

Under President Obama, 53,500 jobs have been lost in North Carolina, the unemployment rate has increased to 9.6%, over 580,00 people are on food stamps, and gas prices have increased by $1.88/gallon.

There is no question North Carolinians are not better off under President Obama. Governor Romney’s plan for a stronger middle class would create 355,000 jobs in North Carolina by the end of his first term. Find out how at http://www.mittromney.com/JobComparison.

Boston, MA – Today, the Romney for President campaign released a new candidate comparison tool on MittRomney.com, which enables voters to learn more about the economic situation in their state. Despite the President’s empty rhetoric of recovery, the reality is that the Obama Administration has presided over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.

“After four years of disappointment, President Obama hasn’t delivered on the economic prosperity that he promised,” said Mitt Romney. “Now Americans can see exactly how the failures of this President’s economic record have impacted their state. I’ve got a plan to turn this economy around, and this tool will allow voters to see exactly how my Plan for a Stronger Middle Class will benefit their community, creating more jobs and more take-home pay for every American.”

After generating their state’s economic report, voters will be given the opportunity to share those results with their friends, family and co-workers online.
