President Obama's Tampa Speech

Here are some excerpts from President Obama's prepared remarks at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, via the White House:

We’re going to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion.  I have a detailed plan that will cut spending we can’t afford, strengthen programs like Medicare for the long haul, and reform our tax code in a way that’s fair and responsible. 

My plan will stop giving tax breaks to businesses that ship jobs and factories overseas, and start rewarding companies that create jobs and manufacturing right here in the United States of America. 

Now, not only does Governor Romney disagree with this plan, today it was reported in The Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were ‘pioneers’ in the outsourcing of American jobs to places like China and India.  Pioneers! 

Tampa, we don’t need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a President who will fight for American jobs and American manufacturing.  And that’s what my plan will do.
