Romney’s close last night was pretty good. However, since he landed the plum of going
last for the night with no chance for rebuttal, I would have gone tougher and
included others running – without the House and Senate he cannot repeal
Obamacare. So here is MY two minute
close… What do you think?
heard a man advocate what we all know does not work. It is like an American middle class family
with two kids where the husband is a trucker earning $45,000 per year and his
wife works for the town government for $25,000 per year. They decided in 2009 to budget $100, 000 to
live on including their taxes. A new
pickup for him, new furniture, and some highly speculative stocks. Plus a student loan beyond that for their
daughter. They borrow the $30,000
shortfall with three credit cards plus the student loan they have no way of paying. They do this year after year. Now their interest is most of what they earn
and they have to drastically change their lives and know they will never be
able to pay what they owe. Their daughter graduated but is part of the 50% who can’t
get a job and lives at home.
The President has been doing this his entire tenure and then
wants to further raise taxes. The
President is the one who proposed a budget just as out of step with our nation’s
income. It failed in the Senate 99-0. Even
Democrat Harry Reid who leads the Senate did not vote for it. We are not talking about tweaks in a second
term being able to help. We need someone
who knows budgets and will treat your money as carefully as he treats his own. We cannot get back the $90 billion dollars
squandered on ill-conceived Green Energy companies with nothing of value to
show for it. That money would have paid
for those 100,000 teachers the President talked about for 15 whole years. Many times that was wasted with more people falling
into poverty than anytime is recent memory.
It will require proportional sacrifices, but as we adjust
and get at least 12 million more people working, we will make progress. We cannot continue having more people give up
on work than getting jobs. We cannot consider raising taxes on the middle class
and raising their healthcare costs. Obamacare is already triple the President’s
estimate, with no end in sight. All this will simply deliver a blow to our
nation we may not be able to recover from.
I urge you, my fellow Americans, we are in this fight for our nation
together, and I trust you will elect me and like-minded Congresspersons and
Senators to apply the experience God has blessed us with to work toward
restoration and growth in our beloved country.
God bless you, and good night!
