Convention – Day Two
The theme for the RNC Convention today is “Make America Work Again”.
During his two terms in the White House, Obama has doubled national debt to almost $20 trillion. He has added more debt burden on the American people than all the 43 presidents before him combined.
There are a staggering 94 million Americans out of labor force, the lowest labor-force participation rate in 38 years. One in five families do not have a single member in the workforce.
The official unemployment rate is a lie since it only classifies people as unemployed if they are actively looking for work, it does not reflect those who cannot find work and have given up.
In 2014, the official poverty rate in America was 14.8 percent. There were 46.7 million people in poverty.
One in seven Americans – some 45.4 million people – still depend on food stamps.
Job-killing regulations, legislation like Obamacare and similar Obama policies are crushing middle-class families. The average income for middle class families is $4,000 less today than it was in 1999. Crooked Hillary would continue these destructive policies. She would, in effect, be an Obama third term that would deliver the same poor results.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, is a successful businessman with a solid record of creating jobs and the experience America needs to get America’s economy up and running … and get Americans working again.
