Mitt Romney op-ed: 'On jobs, where is Obama?'

When it comes to Business and the economy, When Mitt Romney speaks, most people listen. In this case, President Obama.

Romney penned the following op-ed in USA TODAY:
Sometimes truth arrives from the most unexpected sources. Christina Romer, President Obama's former chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors, said last week that she was dismayed at Washington's lack of focus on jobs.

"I frankly don't understand why policymakers aren't more worried about the suffering of real families," Romer said. "We need to realize that there is still a lot of devastation out there." She called the 8.9% unemployment rate "an absolute crisis."

How bad is it? Last week, in the blue-collar community of Taunton, Mass., the annual jobs fair was canceled because not enough companies came forward to offer jobs..........
Actions and not talk, are needed NOW! Here Romney lays out some steps needed to create an atmosphere that will encourage job growth:
  • A tax policy that rewards savings, investment, entrepreneurial risk-taking and exports.
  • Free, open and fair access to foreign markets, with a focus on constructive trade reform with China.
  • Elimination of the federal bureaucratic and regulatory stranglehold on business.
  • A market-driven energy policy that encourages investment in America and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.
  • A commitment to fiscal responsibility through budget restraints and entitlement reform.

The agenda for the economy that Romney lays out in "No Apology: The Case For American Greatness" will get our country on the right track again.

This Op-Ed is the Cliff's Notes version.

The economy was my #1 issue in the 2008 primary also. If anyone can turn it around, Mitt Romney can.

Romney 2012!

Romney is the only clear choice in 2012 with the economy in such poor shape.

It's so refreshing and it offers hope to hear someone speak on this issue that actually knows what they're talking about.
