What the candidates say:

OBAMA
“Those of us here tonight can’t solve all our nation’s woes.  Ultimately, our recovery will
be driven not by Washington, but by our businesses and our workers.  But we can help.
We can make a difference.  There are steps we can take right now to improve people’s
lives,” Obama said to a joint session of Congress Sept. 8, 2011.

– Create jobs by out-educating, out-innovating and out-building the global competition
– Invest in education, small businesses, infrastructure and research
– Eliminate tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas and create tax incentives
for businesses bringing jobs back home
– Double exports and create 1 million new manufacturing jobs

ROMNEY
“Business and growing jobs is about taking risk, sometimes failing, sometimes
succeeding, but always striving. It is about dreams. … It’s the genius of the American
free enterprise system – to harness the extraordinary creativity and talent and industry
of the American people with a system that is dedicated to creating tomorrow’s
prosperity…” said Romney in his Aug. 30 Democratic National Convention nomination
speech.

– Amend the National Labor Relations Act to protect the right of business owners to use
money as they see fit, and guarantee a secret ballot in all union certification elections
– Reverse executive orders that tilt the playing field towards organized labor
– Consolidate federal retraining programs and funding and return management to the
states
– Raise visa caps for highly skilled workers and grant permanent residency to eligible
graduates with advanced math, science, or engineering degrees
