After President Obama’s victory in the final Presidential debate, working families in Wisconsin have no doubts about the stark differences between the President's plan to keep our nation secure and to strengthen our economy for all families, and Mitt Romney's plan to go backward to the foreign policy of the 1980s, the social policies of the 1950s, and the economy policy of the 1920s.
This November we face a clear choice about the direction of our country.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan believe in the same failed policies of the last 30 years that hollowed out the middle class and destroyed our economy. They’re advocating for the kinds of policies perfected by companies like Romney’s Bain Capital that offshored jobs, shuttered companies and created massive wealth for a few at the expense of working families. Their proposals would lower the incomes of average Americans, increase unemployment and foreclosures, undermine Medicare and Social Security, cut taxes for the richest people and widen income inequality.
Four years ago working families chose a different direction—we chose to stand for fairness, a voice for all at work and in our economy, shared prosperity and opportunity for all, not just some.
Wisconsin AFL-CIO working families are deeply committed to re-electing President Obama and Vice President Biden to continue the change we started. We’re committed to strengthening majorities who will stand with working people in the Senate, in the House and state legislatures throughout the country.
