STATEMENT: Romney Campaign Responds to Obama's Interview With Des Moines Register
The Romney campaign has issued the following response to the president's interview with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register. Read the transcript of the interview here.
“In the face of a struggling economy, President Obama took his eye off the ball, and spent over a year focused on passing Obamacare – a massive government takeover of health care that cuts Medicare for today’s seniors, raises taxes on millions of middle-class families, and impedes job creation. But rather than learn from this mistake, the President would do the same in a second term, implementing even more job-destroying policies that will cost the nation over 700,000 jobs. It’s clear why Americans can’t afford four more years like the last four years. As President, Mitt Romney’s top priority will be fixing our nation’s economy by creating 12 million jobs, higher take-home pay for American workers, and a more prosperous future for all Americans.” – Amanda Henneberg, Romney Campaign Spokesperson
