What does this warm if you got a -- field latest sit down and relax.
Production but for being an outstanding teacher I loved figure.
Two other people I want to acknowledge first -- all rational manner.

Let me also say about the way.
Thank you for returning Malia and Sasha.
Safe and sound they were up -- -- -- They had a wonderful time.
But their parents.

But you guys took good care of the ball they're up.
I appreciate that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But I'm like you've been able to hide your TV set or your cable broke.
You may be aware that there's -- campaign going on right now.
Part of the -- in the campaign so -- is because.
The choice we face in November could not be bigger.
It's not just sort during two candidates or to political parties.
Make a choice between two fundamentally different visions.
About where to take the -- to fundamentally different paths or not.
And and that decisions that you make.
The direction future for us to walk -- when you walk into that voting group.
It's gonna have an impact not just on your alliance.
But it's gonna have an impact on your kids and grandkids.
And generations ago.
Some of your involvement -- doesn't -- -- we came together.
And it wasn't -- Democrats we -- independence we have even some Republicans.
There you go.
And the idea was.
That we need to restore the basic bargain that made this country right.
The basic bargain that.
Rated the most prosperous.
Economy -- the world government.
And it's something bargain it's fair if you work hard network should be war.
It says it supported and and you take it for your responsibilities.
He's built -- -- up the bills.
Build a -- home you can call your -- You should.
Count on health care if you get sick.
-- The -- to retire.
-- with some dignity and some respect after a lifetime of labor.
And most importantly you build your kids kind of education and opportunity that allows them to -- That's that's the American promise that's the American dream and we restoring it wouldn't be.
But it would take more than one year or one term or even one president because we have gone through what decade.
It -- that promise with not being kept.
We have seen a back -- In which.
Incomes of wages were going -- that it cost of -- from healthcare to college were brought up.
What we had seen a -- -- shipped overseas.
Which we talk.
A surplus and turned that it would not have let -- two -- -- lot of credit card.
All culminating in the worst financial crisis.
-- the Great Depression.
And middle class players who were are getting hammered.
Lost their job -- savings some off their homes.
And the American dream seemed even further out of reach.
Ran for office I told.
There are no quick -- there are no easy solution but what I also insisted.
That if we -- to -- We have everything we need.
To meet our challenges.
He's now have the best workers in the world the best.
Got to put the small business people in the world.
The best scientists about -- -- the best universities.
About colleges in the.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- we've got the greatest diversity of talent and -- they're the reason why people.
Don't want to come here got no matter what the naysayers saying.
-- dark others -- drive that paint a situation during election time.
There are not another country out of -- -- gladly change places where the United States.
The American character.
I've not changed in fact we saw during this crisis.
People -- got knocked down they got right back.
You know people on the fifth sixth lose their jobs go back to -- they get retrain and -- no.
Small -- of people keep them -- doors open.
Even if that -- they have not taken a salary that they understood their workers.
At them but -- depending on.
We may have altered to -- out but it turns out.
We're tougher than tough times.
And that's always -- and auto industry on the brink of collapse that's -- -- credit.
Million new jobs half a million and manufacturing.
Not there yet we still got a long way to go because we've got to make sure that here in America.
No matter what you look like no matter where you come from.
Last name is -- the -- You can make it brought it up what this campaign about.
Right so there's a choice in this election.
We got a particular vision about.
-- cup report by my opponent and his running mate I have a very different.
Only the best way forward.
Is to go right back.
They all top down economics the -- that is -- -- -- like.
Ideas are pretty simple.
They're not hard to explain they think that if we get rid of more regulations on.
Big corporations and big banks some of which we put in place to prevent another taxpayer funded bailout.
If we do more tax cuts for the very wealthiest Americans.
-- somehow prosperity that rained down on all of -- That perhaps there never.
The setup piece of my opponent entire economic plan.
-- five trillion dollar tax cut.
A lot of -- going to the wealthiest Americans.
Is no running congressman Ryan.
He did did -- Florida plan that would.
It would let governor Romney pay less than 1% -- computer.
-- -- -- Expects you to pick up -- that.
That's my that's my analysis now that the analyses that in -- -- of folks -- -- tax plans for eleven.
That's what they -- -- all of us know the governor -- tax plan would actually raise taxes.
On middle class families with children by an average of 2000 -- Not not to reduce the deficit.
Not road dogs not that -- -- education.
But again it.
Another tax cut the folks like them.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- here in New Hampshire on Monday they're going to be governor on Monday after the -- that's but it.
Ask them how it will grow the economy ask them -- it will -- middle class.
-- trying to sell this trickle down snake oil a poll.
It did not work then it will not work now.
Let the world know -- in America.
You know the -- that I think they know it's not a very popular idea.
You can tell that -- you can tell that because.
Now they're -- -- just out of Bob my -- since they can't sell their points.
-- ball differently won't expect.
But the but the latest commitments Ryan.
To talk about Medicare now -- let the boy talk about Medicare.
Both of them have proposed about drive Medicare says.
But I got that major.
Beat them to try to go on offense.
And New Hampshire -- what you need to know.
I've been in office I have strengthen Medicare.
-- could have extended the life of the program that -- save millions of seniors with Medicare hundreds of dollars on the prescription drugs.
The only thing is to your benefits.
-- -- on Medicare.
Is that Medicare now covers -- of -- that like cancer screenings and moments visit four point.
Governor running congress right have a very different plant.
What they want they want seniors to get about to buy their own insurance.
-- to pay an extra 6400.
Dollars a year further helped it.
Not my estimate -- guys who analyze these things for eleven.
That's the stuff.
And does the very guaranteed of Medicare.
That's -- more of the -- written my congressman Ryan and endorsed by governor.
So here's the bottom line -- -- saved money in Medicare by cracking down on fraud and waste and insurance it's company subsidies.
Bear plant -- to pay our.
Technical public that's got them.
My plans are expendable like -- -- -- by nearly a decade.
But Medicare on track.
-- what it would be an entirely different planet a plant in which you could not count.
On health care because it would -- to come out your pocket.
The real difference between our plan -- That's the choice in this election.
And that's why I'm not a -- second term -- -- out of there.
-- -- -- -- -- I promise to cut middle class taxes.
That's exactly what I've -- By by a total of about 3600 dollars -- typical -- So just like -- that was a Medicare -- That would -- that right now how want to do is keep it right where they are the first 250000.
Dollars of everybody.
Make under 250000.
Dollar which meant that includes 98% of Americans.
Of small businesses.
You -- your income tax increase by a single -- next.
If you're -- -- -- to be in the other 2%.
Old girl you know your tax cut on the part one -- -- now you make.
A good -- Well all we're asking if the folks like me who -- -- We're asking you contribute a little bit more about -- So we can pay down this deficit and invest in things like making college more.
It's our economy grows.
Keep in mind don't asking the wealthy to pay a little bit more that -- Eliminate our depth that we're still gonna have to make sure the government but that's part but.
Cutting away all that spending we don't mean not gonna cut a trillion dollars in spending.
And weeks -- another trillion more but.
We can't just.
That -- gutting.
Education and cutting research and development and in -- it with -- And an all involved like let's go back for the rates we pay about one which by the way with -- -- -- -- it nearly 23 million jobs but that budget surplus in history.
-- -- a million of them.
And I wanna I -- explain that.
Not just good or middle class families and work -- it's good for everybody because.
What happens when a police officer or firefighter teacher construction worker -- What happens when -- a lot more money in the -- They expanded on on basic necessities.
Maybe they go -- finally after taking my new car or maybe a new computer -- -- -- -- -- college.
And with some more -- -- -- more problems.
And that means.
Hire more workers who went -- more money as men which makes it even matter.
-- On issue -- the choice but not like.
-- -- -- -- -- -- But let's ban on American workers and American manufacturing.
And we have -- later the American auto industry have come roaring back that's the point.
Iran like the -- it private sector experience.
Even though a lot of experience -- investing in companies that were -- pioneers.
In the business -- outsourcing manufacturing jobs.
He wants to bond given tax breaks to companies which have jobs overseas.
I wanna get to let the companies that are domestic here in new.
Thank hiring American workers can make American product that they'll around the.
-- are quote imaginary.
Since I took -- we've -- back double.
Use -- -- Energy like wind and solar.
Good job because -- -- it's not imaginary it's real.
Let's stop them or billion dollars a year in taxpayer subsidies to big oil companies -- -- Energy that it now.
A bit more prominent think that's a choice in this life.
And to the and I promised I -- -- the wrong.
-- that we go after al-Qaeda and bin Laden.
We -- are transitioning.
-- take more responsibility for their security and we can start bringing our troops home from back.
All of the things we did only because incredible courage.
And medication and -- of empowerment of women in uniform.
And that's why.
We've made historic investment in the BA because I believe -- But he was bought more American uniform should not have the fight for a job when they come home.
We could not be -- them but.
We want them to return to a strong economy which means that after a -- a war -- done this nation building here don't.
Let's read -- -- -- -- they can help.
Firefighters cops and that -- him.
Some of the spending.
Our roads our bridges our school.
-- what they can make us more competitive.
Let's put them construction workers back to work that helped everybody.
We'll help America.
From bird but that's the come up but -- in the election night what that night.
I want to make sure that we got the best education in the world.
A lot of help all of that looks like that's one -- reward the best especially -- map behind.
Get two million more Americans the chance to go to community colleges and learned -- still the better -- hiring -- right now.
-- college and universities to bring their tuition down because the deployment.
Able to the knowledge that expensive.
Higher education and if not a lot straight.
That the method that the -- in the.
Because I still believe in America nobody should go broke because they get it.
About the term obamacare.
I -- -- that's why we have the ball up like six and a half million young people could stay on their parents' plan.
-- -- -- -- Got somebody with a preexisting condition that now that help there.
At the right thing.
But that -- imported good.
I'm going backwards we won't.
-- -- -- We're not go back with the.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- We end the Don't Ask Don't Tell of the right thing to do.
What I've gone back.
Women didn't have control their own health care -- -- About.
This operations there of the short.
And all the treatment actually.
-- care education.
All things tied together because it's part of what not only makes up the middle class like but also re -- the opportunity for people to get in the middle like.
That's what we believe.
That's what we're -- more about -- the economy grow.
That's what we learn from our parents our grandparents our great -- Some who came here immigrants' -- work of art.
Overcoming obstacles understanding that in America not only could -- -- Future generations could do but that's what's at stake in the collection and that's why I'm running reflective of.
-- -- but.
However at -- are among -- a close up my sentiments over the next three months.
A lot more negative -- That you're ever seen in your life.
Now these folks on the other side of the -- ten million dollar checks.
And basically their argument is going to be the same one over and over again.
Economy not work should be at a Obama's well know that keep on repeating that because they -- their -- plan builds up.
So although it's just.
Paul bet if they -- people's frustration and anxiety.
That somehow there even know what they're so it won't work.
That's on a plan to create jobs plan that is the opposite it's certainly not a plan to revive the middle plan.
But they are counting on just outspending -- two point.
But here's the good it's a good rant.
About before I've been outspent.
But what -- And you guys help.
The -- Is.
And the American people.
When -- cut the nonsense.
When you focus on what's important.
When you're reminded of what built this -- What you remember that we are all in this to -- -- Basic American notion that everybody in this country.
And everybody should do their prayers there and everybody should play by the -- Our focus on the things that make up a break -- You will help get out there.
We've got -- many more jobs we got a threat to many -- To hire.
People need to go to college.
Let it -- we've got to come home.
So if you're willing to spend -- -- -- -- --
