The American economy has been stagnant, stuck at a dismal 2 percent growth during the Obama Administration. As Americans, we can and must do better.  On paper the unemployment level has fallen; this is primarily because many able-bodied Americans are no longer looking for work.  The employment-to-population ratio for workers aged 25–54 has actually decreased by 2.5 percentage points since the months leading up to the financial collapse of 2008.

Instead of responding to signs of a struggling economy with a pro-growth agenda, the Obama Administration has further crippled businesses and the economy with overbearing regulations and a toxic business environment. That's why I am pursuing a positive agenda to grow the economy, strengthen businesses, and get Americans back to work.

I have taken action to get America's economy back on track. With basic principles like balancing our budget, expanding options in education, and increasing productivity, we can get our economy going and restore America to a nation of limitless possibility.
