Vision Statement: Putting Americans back to work is job one. But we have to do more. I am taking aggressive steps to put Americans back to work and create an economy where hard work pays and responsibility is rewarded. For years before the economic crisis, middle-class security had been slipping away. Wages stagnated while health care costs soared. We have to reclaim the security the middle class has lost by restoring the basic values that made our country great. America prospers when we’re all in it together — when hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded. We need an economy built to last — that creates jobs of the future and makes things the rest of the world buys — not one built on outsourcing, loopholes and risky financial deals that jeopardize our entire economy. When I took office, my administration both addressed the immediate economic crisis and laid the foundation for an economy that’s built to last. We’ve added back more than 4.5 million private sector jobs and seen 29 straight months of job growth, but there’s more work to do.
