-- -- in my sisters and Brothers in the American labor movement.
And rain and I'm here tonight on behalf of millions of Americans who work hard for a living.

The janitor in Denver the correctional officer.
And -- These are the men and women who make America strong.
And these are the men and women.
Who President Obama is fighting for each and every day.
I grew up in southeast Michigan.
Just a few.
Just a few miles from Mitt Romney.
A few miles away.
But a world apart.
And here's the thing.
Even though Mitt Romney and I both called Detroit home.
It seems like he -- a very different set of values.
-- -- started out in business.
He invested in the companies who were pioneering outsourcing.
He loaded up companies with debt.
And -- they went bankrupt.
He walked away with prospects.
Any left workers who lost their health care.
And even their jobs.
We just learns -- his company when it found itself in trouble.
Ask for a government bailout.
Don't win more than one million auto workers from Michigan or Wisconsin to Ohio.
So -- beer companies fall on hard times.
You know it Mitt Romney said.
Let Detroit go bankrupt.
I asked -- time.
-- after time working families have paid the price for Mitt Romney's success.
Those -- his values.
And make no mistake.
Those are the values he would bring to the White House.
As president Mitt Romney would raise taxes on the middle class Americans by an average of 2000.
Dollars a year and while -- this same time someone earning three million dollars a year would get a quarter million dollar tax cuts.
The Romney Ryan budget would cut education up to 20%.
While protecting tax loopholes for companies -- send jobs overseas.
Governor Romney would replace the -- -- of Medicare with a voucher system.
About your system.
That would cause the average senior 6400.
Dollars a year out of their own -- But when it comes to subsidies for oil companies.
Well Mitt Romney thinks that that's something worth protecting.
Middle class Americans cannot afford.
For years I've Romney economics.
We needed a president who fights for us and that's what we have in president Barack Obama.
-- and president who fights for women like Maria.
Maria is a custodian from California.
And thanks to Health Care Reform.
Her daughter is covered under health insurance.
And -- his mother will never have to worry about losing her Medicare benefits.
We have a president who has fought for hardworking immigrants like Brenda.
Who came to this country when she was just three years old.
And -- executive action by the president.
-- can pursue a college career.
Without fear of deportation.
We have a president who has fought for the right to collectively bargained.
We have a president who wants workers to earn a decent wage.
For the principle that all work has value and it every worker deserves respects.
So for millions of middle class families.
Across this country.
That choice is clear day.
We -- not move backward with Mitt Romney we must keep America moving forward.
And that's why we need to re elect president Barack Obama.
