With Election Day finally arriving, we offer this list of reasons to vote for Mitt Romney.
1. Job creation
With 23 million Americans looking for work, job creation is the key to get the economy moving again. Romney will ease regulatory and tax burdens that inhibit businesses from hiring new workers. His experience in the business world where budgets are met—as opposed to Obama’s community organizing background—makes him the kind of chief executive that can get the job done.
2. Lower taxes
A second Obama term will bring higher taxes rates for all Americans, increases in capital gains rates, tax deduction limitations, and scores of taxes associated with Obamacare—precisely the prescription for a double-digit recession. In contrast, Romney’s plan to reduce rates, while closing loopholes, will help boost economic growth.
3. Economic growth
A Romney win will go a long way to reassure businesses, which are sitting on a trillion dollars in cash reserves, that it is safe to make investments and expand their operations without Big Government stepping in. His policies on energy and trade will help boost economic growth. By contrast, just the enactment of Obama’s crushing tax increases will snuff out any hope that the United States sees a robust recovery.
4. Entitlement reform
Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate signaled that he was ready for a serious discussion about saving entitlement programs, where costs are spiraling out of control. Obama never offered a plan during his four years, ignored his own debt commission’s recommendations, and added another costly entitlement program with Obamacare. Social Security and Medicare are at risk unless a bold, daring approach is tried—like the Ryan plan.
