You want -- you're President Obama.
You want to hear what governor Romney had in common they both agree that this election is about the middle class and they both agree the middle class is struggling the reasons for what to do about it is the key.
Joining us right now is congressman Aaron shock Republican out of Illinois.
31 years old the youngest guy in there possibly the fittest congressman welcome -- -- George W -- -- end with a race but first let's suck about the race for the presidency the middle class.
We see the middle class for the most part.
We have the George Bush more than Barack Obama.
Blaming other circumstances beside themselves is there accountability that American should take about there.
Well financial status -- Part of the individuals.
Outcomes in our country are determined by the -- the state of the economy obviously you don't have a job you can't save for retirement if you don't have a job you can't make your mortgage mortgage payments and part of it is.
The government's role to set pro growth economic policies that the end of the day.
People took on loans they couldn't afford people made unwise decisions personally.
And I think it's human nature unfortunately that people like to to look around the room to blame if they if they fail in school -- failing marriage that -- work unfortunately human beings tend to try and look to someone else to really when the fall and.
-- congress 62% say they blame congress 54% say they blame the banks 47% say corporations then comes George Bush.
-- barred competitions than 34%.
Blame President Obama and people want to know why he still close Mitt Romney on.
On the economy isn't this really that the poll we should be looking at.
-- why I think there's a frustration that things haven't been fixed and I think what we have to keep talking about as Republicans is look -- President Obama said himself when he got elected.
-- I don't have this thing turned around three and a half years it's going to be a one term proposition.
Yes turnaround he's been sealed for forty years he's controlled much of congress for the first two years.
And his policies have failed and at the end of the day.
He needs to be held accountable for we need to give somebody else's that a shot.
If there's somebody that knows about sixes and a way to ameliorate the situation is congressman Ryan's constant work on the budget the economy is chairman.
So what could you tell me about what he's been working on it's hard to tell somebody want to vote from.
You've got to go forward into foreclosure I can't -- out yup well couple things first of all Paul has been a man.
Who's been willing to take a stand even when he was a voice in the wild as some of the Republicans we're met -- freezer and -- -- actually let's be honest.
The budget the Paul Ryan put together would not have passed the Republican congress ten years ago.
And yet this budget and I think it speaks to Paul's leadership.
His ability not only to put forward a vision but he's gotten more people -- for his budget this last year.
In any budget -- passed the congress the last fifteen years it's one thing just to -- to talk about what you wanna do another thing to be able to get other people file and that's a clear decision between.
Romney Ryan and Obama whose failed on every talking to people followed everybody's voted including.
