Obama for America Releases New Television Ad: “The Question”
CHICAGO -- Obama for America released a new television advertisement titled “The Question” that affirmatively answers the fundamental question of why the American people are better off today than they were four years ago, when President Obama took office amidst the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
It comes down to this: when President Obama came into office, America was losing 800,000 private sector jobs a month and had lost almost 4.4 million jobs. Today, under the President’s leadership, businesses have created 4.6 million new jobs in 30 consecutive months of private-sector job growth.
We’re not there yet, but we need to be asking: whose plan is better for the American people?
That’s why the choice in this election is so important: America can either continue to move forward with President Obama’s plan for an economy built to last that’s grounded in a strong middle-class – or go back to the same top-down economic policies of the last decade that crashed our economy and punished the middle class. Mitt Romney’s plan gives multi-millionaires and billionaires a new $250,000 tax break while raising taxes on middle-class families with kids by $2,000 and lets Wall Street write its own rules again, which would eliminate protections for families and consumers. That’s hardly the formula for moving America forward.
“The Question” will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia.
