I’m here to tell you that we don’t need to pretend anymore that the U,S.
is the economic powerhouse it once was.
It is not.
The United States is an outlier in this economic race.
We’re a nation that has not been a beacon of prosperity for decades.
The country is now in a recession.
Unemployment is skyrocketing.
People are living paycheck to paycheck.
The U.N. is calling for a new round of aid, but the current package of $3.8 trillion in annual aid has not kept pace with the $15 trillion needed to repair our infrastructure.
And that’s just the spending.
As the economy continues to stagnate, many of the things that were once seen as the hallmark of our prosperity are rapidly eroding.
And if this is not the time to invest in our future, then I don’t know what is.
This is a nation of hardworking Americans, but we’ve also got a nation struggling to find our footing and keep our head above water.
The fact is, we’re in a deep recession.
We can do better.
We have a strong economy and a strong infrastructure, but there’s a lot we can do to help our citizens and their families.
We’ve been on the forefront of helping people out of poverty.
The economy is growing and jobs are plentiful, but more and more Americans are feeling trapped in poverty and destitution.
It just doesn’t seem like the U’s economy is doing too well, even though the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates near zero for nearly six years.
The Fed and other economic officials have been telling us that the best way to keep inflation in check is to continue increasing the size of our monetary base.
But as inflation spikes, our ability to raise money for our own needs is eroding at an unprecedented rate.
We need a plan to boost the economy, and it’s clear that we need to do something about the deficit.
That means raising taxes.
It also means cutting spending.
But what about the debt?
The U’s debt is at a record high.
As our debt grows, our deficits are increasing.
And even as we’ve made significant strides in lowering our debt, the deficit has continued to grow.
In the midst of this crisis, the only thing that can stop it is the will of the American people to act.
The truth is, Americans aren’t willing to stand up and demand that our elected leaders address our problems.
The people have spoken and they have demanded change.
That is why Americans are rallying behind the #RepealTheDebt campaign, an effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
I’m going to tell our citizens that it’s time for the American way of life to change.
The president is the first president to call on the American People to repeal this disastrous law, and that’s exactly what we need.
As we have witnessed the last several weeks, the country is tired of being governed by Washington insiders and special interests.
As Americans, we need a President who is willing to step in and fix our broken system, and I’m proud to say that I will be a candidate for the Senate.
Our economy is strong.
The Federal Reserve is doing a great job keeping our economy from falling into recession.
And we’ve seen the American dream come alive again.
I know firsthand the power of free markets.
In fact, I’ve worked to expand them for my own business.
I have seen how the free market works and I know it can solve a lot of problems.
So I know what it takes to make America great again.
But we must change the way we govern and the way our economy operates.
I’ve made it a personal mission to do just that.
The way I’ve built my own businesses and the services I’ve provided to the people I’ve served are the key to creating jobs, lowering our country’s debt, and making our economy more competitive.
We cannot afford to continue to ignore the problems plaguing our country.
We must take action.
We are the only country in the world that has the power to address the urgent needs of its people.
This means creating jobs and fixing our broken healthcare system, reforming our tax system, protecting our borders, and putting our military on a path to success.
I believe we have the chance to lead the world on a new direction and we must.
We will not stand for the mistakes of the past.
We know what’s best for the future.
And so, I am calling on Congress to repeal and replace the disastrous Obamacare.
And by the way, let’s be clear: No one will be harmed if we repeal and then replace the law.
The American people need to get involved in this fight.
We don’t have to sit idly by while our country goes down the drain.
We’ll do everything in our power to make sure that the American Dream is for everyone.
We believe that a healthy
