MITT PROMISED TO GET IT DOWN TO 6% IN FOUR YEARS
Here: “I can’t possibly predict precisely what the unemployment rate would be at the end of one year. I can tell you that over a period of four years, by virtue of the policies that we put in place, we get the unemployment rate down to 6 percent, or perhaps a little lower.”
BARACK DID IT IN UNDER TWO
And if the Republicans in Congress would just allow it, we could be doing so much better still: Boosting the economy by revitalizing our crumbling infrastructure . . . boosting the economy by hiking the minimum wage . . . boosting the economy by passing the Senate’s bipartisan immigration bill . . . and thereby initiating a virtuous cycle that would lead to higher wages, higher tax receipts, lower safety-net payments, and reduced deficits. Kind of like the virtuous cycle we had under Bill Clinton. (Remember?) All that stands in the way are the Republicans in Congress. Please vote.
