Paul Ryan – 12 million new jobs over the next four years

Entering the Republican National Convention to ebullient cheers, Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin congressman, hammered Obama for failing to create enough jobs, chastised the current administration for focusing on health care at the expense of the unemployed.

“Right now, 23 million men and women are struggling to find work… Nearly one in six Americans is living in poverty… So here’s the question: Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any different from the last four years,” he asked.

“We have a plan for a stronger middle class, with the goal of generating 12 million new jobs over the next four years,” he said…

Romney: a proponent of outsourcing jobs?

POSTED BY  ⋅ JUNE 25, 2012 ⋅ 2 COMMENTS
