Chairman Priebus: "Higher Grocery Bills Knock American Families Lower"

- August 8, 2012

Excerpts from the Washington Times

By: Chairman Reince Priebus

August 7, 2012

"Obama is busy attempting to make this election about small things and ridiculous distractions, but no matter what, Americans cannot escape the harsh realities of the Obama economy. Even a trip to the grocery store has become more difficult for struggling families...

"Over the last three and half years, we've seen median incomes fall. Workers are making less, provided they have jobs at all. Unemployment has been above 8 percent for 42 straight months, and over 23 million people are struggling to find enough work.

"A trip to the grocery store is a regular reminder that times are tough in the Obama economy. There's no relief in sight. As last month's gross domestic product report showed, the economy is actually slowing down. Unemployment is on the rise. By most metrics, we are moving in the wrong direction...

"We need a new direction. Mitt Romney has a plan for job creation that will unleash the private sector and get Americans back to work. Unlike President Obama, he will not push policies that hurt the economy and handcuff job creators. He will reduce taxes on job creation and cut government red tape that restricts economic growth...

"The first four years of the Obama presidency have been hard on American families--from the grocery line to the unemployment line. Another four years would be devastating."
