OFACA MESSAGE OF THE DAY – A Clear Choice in November
President Obama won enough delegates yesterday to secure the Democratic nomination. In the past year, the campaign has built the largest and strongest grassroots campaign in American history. Our staff and volunteers are organizing across the country, talking to their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about what?s at stake in this election.?Now that the Republicans have finally settled on Mitt Romney, voters will face a very clear choice this November.
President Obama is fighting for an economy built to last and restoring economic security for the middle class. He?s rebuilding the economy on a foundation of the fundamental values that made America great ? values like fairness and opportunity. He believes in the simple idea that America prospers when we’re all in it together ? when hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everybody has a fair shot, does their fair share and plays by the same rules.
Mitt Romney has a different vision. Instead of asking everyone to do their fair share and making investments we need for an economy built to last, Romney would slash taxes for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, let Wall Street once again write its own rules, and balance the budget on the backs of the middle class.
Romney?s policies are no better than his record. Romney supports the Ryan budget plan, which would end Medicare as we know it to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Romney?s own budget plan would increase the deficit by $5 billion over the next decade and pass on that debt to the next generation.
