As David Axelrod tweeted: "Excited, America?"
Obama for America Press Secretary Ben LaBolt released the following statement on an RNC spokesperson’s claim yesterday that Mitt Romney’s economic plans are the “Bush plan, but just updated”:
“Yesterday an RNC spokesperson confirmed what we already knew: that Mitt Romney's economic policies are the ‘Bush plan just updated.’ Governor Romney has repackaged the same policies that led us into the economic crisis in the first place: giving tax breaks to the wealthiest few at the expense of the middle class and promoting risky financial deals that not only led to the slowest economic growth in a generation but to years of middle class families struggling with fewer jobs and flat incomes and an economic crisis that included a massive elimination of wealth, a collapse of our markets, and rampant job loss. We’ve seen how this movie ends before, and the middle class can’t afford to go back. The President believes we must continue building an economy that lasts, where everybody from Main Street to Wall Street does their fair share and plays by the same set of rules, and hard work and responsibility are rewarded.”
