That's gonna jumpstart the economy and edited to get Michigan Anders back to work it's gonna get Americans more jobs are crying out -- We're gonna have less -- and smaller government and I'm gonna deliver on.
More jobs less debt and smaller government we got to hear that -- yeah.
There there -- a lot of people who are saying that if you're running for office you really can't speak honestly to the American people well we did.
And I will and because this is a decisive moment.
I believe this is -- time the requires real leadership and our country the times are tough we need leaders who will live with -- integrity.
Who have the encourage have the courage to tell the truth.
And have the experience to get our economy back on track that's the kind of lead driest part of me that's the kind of leader I will be a prime president of the United States.
Our campaign is about more than just replacing -- president.
It's about restoring America's promise from generation to generation Americans have always known that the future would be brighter and better.
Americans always believe that a tomorrow full of possibility and prosperity.
That's what it means to be the land of opportunity.
In America you know that if you work hard.
You can build a better life.
If you teach your kids the right kind of values and help the make the right choices in life you know their future will be prosperous.
And that deep confidence of a better tomorrow is the basic promise of America.
Today that promises being threatened by a faltering economy at a failed presidency.
Four years ago we warned that the president's presidency was no place for on the job training.
Well today we have the economy to prove it Barack.
That this president by the way he likes to remind us that he inherited and it an economy that was in crisis.
But he doesn't like to remind us that he also inherited a Democrat congress.
He had majorities in both the house and the senate he was free to pursue any policy he placed.
That he -- economy no.
That it needed tackle the housing prices.
Did -- get America back to work.
No instead he put us on a path.
Toward debt and deficits and decline it's time to get off that path and get back on the path of American prosperity.
And -- It.
These days what he's -- but he's not spending our money.
Infringing on our rights he's.
He's busy running for reelection.
He believes that that you hear the CE believes that he ranks among the top four presidents in American history.
I'd I'd -- a different spot for him.
He thinks he deserves a second term he says we can't wait to which I say -- yes we can I.
Today we -- -- fifteen trillion dollars in debt.
And real unemployment stands at 15%.
You've you've heard that old saying about I need a vacation for my vacation.
Well what he did have a recovery from this so called recovery.
You know we as a nation we've we've survived the Great Depression.
We've weathered two world wars.
We've made it through tough times.
And we've not come all this way to give up now.
We still believe in the hole.
In the dream.
And the promise of America we know our future is better and brighter than these troubled times.
That unwavering conviction.
-- our campaign -- this effort it's rally millions of people or cause and that's the message we're gonna take to every corner of the country.
From Ohio and Idaho to Georgia and Tennessee we've seen enough for this present over the last three years and although we don't need another five years -- -- Obama.
Picked us up.
-- he thinks he's unchecked by the constitution.
He's unresponsive to the will of our people and in a second term.
He would be on restrained by the demands of reelection if there's one thing we can't afford.
It's four years of Barack Obama with nothing to answer to so we're gonna get a lot of that office they get a back call -- blocks.
-- sized budget.
This is solid budget he put it out it foreshadows exactly what we're gonna see if he's the president runaway spending.
Record that they were just the warm up act.
You know for not -- wants to raise taxes on job creators and small businesses.
And families and we are not going to let him do it.
And this campaign have offered a real choice at a very different direction.
I have a plan that will restore America's promise -- more jobs and less debt and smaller government -- Obama is making the federal government bigger.
And bloated I'll make it simpler smaller and smarter and it's about time for that to happen.
We raise the national debt.
I won't cut cap and balance the budget.
He passed obamacare I would repeal obamacare.
He lost he lost our triple -- credit rating I'll restore AAA credit rating.
He rejected the Keystone Pipeline.
I've got to set off from Canada that we deserve.
About the way.
However -- -- put up our lands for development so we can finally get the energy in this country that we need at a price we can afford.
When it comes to the economy.
My highest priority will be worrying about your job not worrying about -- -- seat mile.
That this president.
You give -- this president wants to raise your taxes.
I'm gonna -- -- that's gonna start with -- across the board 20% rate cut.
For every American out also repeal the alternative minimum tax and we will abolish finally the death tax.
At and you know.
He is now proposed raising taxes on small businesses and job creators.
I'm gonna have a lower those taxes I'll also lower the corporate rate to larger businesses to 25% -- make the -- tax credit permanent.
To Foster innovation.
And I'm gonna and the repatriation tax to return investment back to our shores of lot of money offshore -- -- to come back to America let's finally have a tax plan.
That puts Americans back to work and I haven't and we'll get a life.
-- you know he also proposes to raise taxes on savings and investment.
And if I'm the president I'm gonna help middle class families save and invest tax free.
And he also has -- an extraordinary gap in his policy polls you realize after saying that Medicare and Social Security were troubled he has yet to offer a single serious proposal.
For saving Medicare and Social Security.
I have a plan to save them both and I like him I have the courage but my plan on the table for people to see.
Look like what what this campaign is about my plans are about are creating jobs.
And raising wages for the American people.
They're gonna strengthen our entitlement programs for the next generation.
And they will not add to our deficit we will finally balance America's budget.
Out beyond the beyond having a plan.
To get our citizens back to work.
I have the experience.
To get our economy back on track I spent 25 years in business.
I was also the Steward of the Olympics and the and the leader of a state -- cut taxes nineteen times I've turned to budget shortfall into a surplus.
I know how government can kill jobs and yes I know -- can help create jobs.
And I stand ready to lead our party to victory at our nation back to prosperity.
It's a critical time in America.
It's our time for choosing and this time we got to get the choice right.
I've said it before and I firmly believe that this campaign is about saving the soul of America.
That this election.
This election comes down to two very different visions of America it's a choice become between becoming a nation of -- by Washington.
Or remaining a nation and by a -- people a choice between an entitlement society.
And -- land of opportunity.
A choice between squandering America's promise.
And restoring that promise for future generations.
You want to make this election about restoring American greatness.
And I hope you'll join us.
If you believe that this disappointments of the last few years are -- and not the destiny for America that I need your support.
Masking free to get out and vote and I'm asking for you by the way to go on I've -- -- dot com and pledge your support in every way possible I've.
