Money is one of the top measurements of success. But money at what cost?
Gov. Mitt Romney promotes big business, deregulation and fewer taxes for the wealthy. As one who is wealthy in part because of deregulation and big business, these sentiments serve him well.
In contrast, President Barack Obama promotes the success of society as a whole. He understands that good business should be defined not only by the success of shareholders, but also by the living wage given to its employees. True achievement should not be money for money's sake, but how we use that money to better ourselves and others.
Obama wants to use our tax dollars to fund Medicare, Social Security, education and to create new jobs by updating infrastructure.
Romney supports cutting government jobs, tax cuts for the wealthy, and he defends deregulation. Why?
History has shown us that profit is too seductive for most businesses to resist. Regulation helps protect our financial security, safety and environment.
Romney fights hard for the group in which he belongs the top 1 percent of Americans.
Obama fights hard for the group in which he belongs the rest of us. Let's keep him!
