Paul Ryan: Welcome To President Obama’s Imaginary Recovery
Paul Ryan: You know, there's this guy I've known for a number of years. I'll be talking to him in mid-October. You might have heard of him. His name is Joe Biden. You know, he just said that the middle class is coming back. We've got 23 million people out of work; struggling to find work today. Unemployment has been above 8% for 42 months, and the real unemployment rate is more like 15%. He said last summer was going to be the Summer of Recovery. It's a summer later and it's still worth. They said that the private sector is doing "just fine" and we need more government.
This is President Obama's imaginary recovery. It's not here. We have a mountain of uncertainty that is plaguing small businesses. And now we have a person, in Mitt Romney, who knows through experience the challenges that businesses face. How job creation works. That the engine of opportunity, the nucleus of our economy, is not the government, but the success of small businesses, the entrepreneurs, the people of this country. That's what makes the American dream grow and spread for everybody.
