“America’s comeback team”

Patrick Ryan, Assistant News Editor

On April 11, 2011, Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts came out and officially announced that he will make a second campaign towards the office of the President of the United States along with a committee that had already been compiled.

“It is time that we put America back on a course of greatness,” Romney said during the presser. “With a growing economy, good jobs, and fiscal discipline in Washington.”

Just a few weeks ago, Romney announced that he and his committee have made a final decision in their Vice Presidential running mate selection: Paul Ryan, the author of a highly controversial budget plan last fall.

Romney made it clear that he will do what it takes to fix the broken economy that America is currently immersed in.

One of the main arguments the Obama campaign has been running with is knocking Romney’s ability to create jobs. However, during Romney’s stint as governor of Massachusetts, he ranked 47 among all other states in terms of job creation numbers.

The only thing that said anti-Romney campaigns fail to include in this statistic was the unemployment number not just the job creation number.

That statistic dropped annually throughout Romney’s entire four-year stint as Governor (2003-2007) after inheriting a 5.8 percent in 2003 dropping to 5.1 in 2004 and 4.8 in 2005, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. All of which numbers lower than most other states during that same year.

You can make your own decision based on those numbers.  All I’m saying is that it is awfully difficult to create more jobs when almost everyone has one.

During his term as Governor, Romney balanced the budget every year, reduced unemployment, eliminated the deficit, and left office with a surplus. He did all of this while still decreasing the tax rates and taking no state-funded salary for himself.

In addition to outstanding unemployment and job creation numbers, Romney has said on multiple occasions that he will repeal President Obama’s health care law if elected. Romney is also a big believer in Reaganomics, which essentially says that cutting taxes will bring economic growth.

Romney opposes same sex marriages as well as any form of civil union.

Obama has been adding trillions of dollars worth of new debts in the first 3.5 years that he has been in office, and I believe “America’s Comeback Team” of presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, will promote small businesses and move toward a balanced budget by implementing the classic “Reaganomics.” Something that is foreign to the Obama administration: passing a budget plan, which, by the way, is a federal law.

America will be asked to determine its own future on November 6, 2012. Every vote counts, so get to the polls and make a well informed and educated decision.
