Key Point: President Obama’s historic Wall Street reforms are keeping taxpayers from being on the hook for financial firms’ bad decisions. Mitt Romney would let Wall Street write its own rules again, letting more bad decisions happen.
Key Point: Mitt Romney was a corporate-buyout specialist whose guiding principle was that as long as he and his investors walked away with millions it didn’t matter if companies went bankrupt and thousands lost their jobs. Those values won’t help us build an economy built to last, and we can’t afford to have them in the White House.
Key Point: Mitt Romney says he should be President because he was a businessman who made millions while middle-class families suffered. The values and lessons Romney learned as a corporate-buyout specialist aren’t the ones we want in the White House.
Key Point: Today Obama for America is launching Obama Pride: LGBT Americans for Obama. LGBT Americans have seen more progress under President Obama than ever before, and he’s committed to lasting and comprehensive change and equality for LGBT Americans. Mitt Romney would take us back to the failed policies of the past and a country lacking tolerance and support for its own citizens.
Key Point: Today Mitt Romney is giving yet another major policy framing speech, this time about education. The President believes education is an economic imperative and key to making long-term investments for an economy built to last. Romney didn’t make long-term investments in companies as a corporate-buyout specialist, he didn’t make long-term investments in Massachusetts’ education as governor, and he won’t make them as President.
Key Point: Mitt Romney is visiting a Nevada small business today, distorting the President’s support for America’s small businesses. President Obama has helped small businesses grow, create jobs and lift up their communities. Romney Economics fails to help small businesses and doubles down on failed policies of the past.
Key Point: Today Mitt Romney is holding a clean energy event in Colorado and distorting the President’s all-of-the-above energy strategy that’s making America more energy independent. Romney is a shill for Big Oil, taking its money and doing its bidding.
Key Point: President Obama’s vision keeps us moving forward, toward a job-creating economy built to last – where hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone gets a fair shot, does their fair share, and plays by the same rules.
Key Point: While President Obama boldly decided in an uncertain window of opportunity to authorize the operation that finally got Osama bin Laden, Mitt Romney said he opposed taking unilateral action inside Pakistan to eliminate terrorists from the battlefield and that it wouldn’t be “worth moving heaven and earth” to get bin Laden.
Key Point: While President Obama has helped create jobs here in America and encouraged companies to bring jobs back home, Mitt Romney shipped jobs overseas both in the private sector and as governor of Massachusetts.
Key Point: Mitt Romney has no credibility on controlling debt given his $5 trillion tax plan that would blow a hole in the budget, his private-sector record of piling debt on companies and his public sector record of running up debt on constituents.
Key Point: As a businessman, Mitt Romney didn’t care about strengthening companies or creating jobs – he cared most about getting a high return on his investment no matter the cost to workers, companies or communities. The values and lessons Romney learned as a corporate-buyout specialist aren’t the ones we want in the Oval Office.
