Talking Points

GottaVote.org Will Help Americans Understand Their Voting Rights and How to Exercise Them in Their State

Key Point: Today, Obama for America is launching GottaVote.org, the campaign’s bilingual, cutting-edge resource to help Americans understand their rights to vote, and know how to exercise it in their state. The President’s campaign is about inclusiveness and moving forward, not backward. That’s why we’re trying to get as many Americans involved as possible. That’s the true spirit of our elections and our country.

Romney Campaign Undermines Attacks on the President

Key Point: The Romney campaign’s new standard for judging Romney’s economic record argues he should be judged only on his last year in office since he inherited a bad economy. The Romney campaign should then judge the President’s economic record by the nearly 4.3 million private-sector jobs he created since turning the economy around, since the President indisputably inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. Romney has simply undercut his core argument against the President’s handling of the economic crisis by trying to play by two sets of rules.

America’s Small Businesses Can’t Afford Romney Economics

Key Point: Today Mitt Romney is 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.

Mitt Romney Hypocritically Tries to Call the President Out of Touch; His Policies Would Hurt the Middle Class

Key Point: Mitt Romney is hypocritically trying to call the President out of touch. We’re happy to have the discussion about who’s out of touch. Romney’s policies would hurt the middle class.

Mitt Romney Wants to Repeal Obamacare and “Replace” It With Nothing New, Leaving Millions of Americans Uninsured and Ignoring Rising Health Costs

Key Point: Yesterday Mitt Romney again promised to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, but he really doesn’t have a plan to do anything on health care. His centerpiece is a law that’s been on the books for more than 15 years, and he would leave millions more people uninsured while ignoring rising health care costs.

The President’s Jobs Plan Will Grow Our Economy by Putting Teachers, Cops and Firefighters Back to Work; Romney Would Cut Their Jobs like He Did in Massachusetts

Key Point: President Obama’s jobs plan would put teachers back in classrooms and first responders back on our streets, part of his plan to help create up to a million new jobs that Congress left on the table last year. Mitt Romney has a different plan – he wants to cut jobs for teachers, policeman and firefighters, just like he did in Massachusetts, undermining our recovery and hurting the middle class. Romney Economics didn’t work then and it won’t work now.

Obama Campaign Launches Veterans and Military Families for Obama

Key Point: The Obama Campaign has launched Veterans and Military Families for Obama, highlighting the President’s strong commitment to honoring our sacred trust with those who serve and protect our nation. It's a commitment that begins at when they take their oath, and it must never end.

Romney Economics Piled Debt on Companies and Massachusetts Taxpayers – and Would Do the Same to the Entire Country

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.

Obama for America Launches Latinos for Obama

Key Point: Latinos for Obama is about fighting for a future where everyone who works hard and does their fair share gets a shot at the American dream.

Vice President Biden Spoke in New Hampshire on Tax Fairness and the Buffett Rule

Key Point: President Obama has proposed the Buffett Rule to close loopholes and end special tax breaks that let some of the wealthiest pay a lower tax rate than many middle-class families so we can help reduce the deficit and invest in our economy. Mitt Romney defends a system that rewards people like him at the expense of the middle class and the economy as a whole by allowing him to pay a lower tax rate than the average middle-class American.

President Obama Releases 2011 Tax Returns; Romney Should Release His Tax Returns

Key Point: Mitt Romney should level with voters and release all of his tax returns.

The Obama Campaign Releases A New Tax Calculator On The Buffett Rule

Key Point: The President believes that millionaires and billionaires shouldn’t pay lower tax rates than firefighters and teachers. That’s why he proposed the Buffett Rule – to close tax loopholes to ensure that millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share and don’t pay less in taxes than middle-class families.

Mitt Romney Alienates Women, Middle-Class Families and Hispanic Americans

Key Point: Mitt Romney’s extreme comments have alienated women, middle-class families and Hispanic Americans – all key voters he’d need to win in November.
