Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan believe in a top-down economy, the same formula that crashed our economy and devastated the middle class. President Obama believes we need an economy built to last and built from the middle class out, not the top down.
· President Obama is welcoming Congressman Paul Ryan to the race and believes he’s an articulate spokesman for Mitt Romney’s top-down economic vision – a vision the President fundamentally disagrees with.
· Romney and Ryan are committed to a flawed economic theory – that giving the wealthy more budget-busting tax breaks and placing greater burdens on the middle class and seniors will somehow strengthen our economy.
· We’ve tried this top-down theory, and it crashed our economy and devastated the middle class. We can’t afford to go back to the failed economic formula that got us into this mess.
· President Obama believes we need an economy built to last and built from the middle class out – where everyone gets a fair shot, does their fair share and plays by the same rules.
