American Future Fund is welcoming President Obama to Iowa today with a new web ad. The ad begs the question, “What has Obama done for our future?”
While there is no question that President Obama became president when our nation was struggling economically, the question Americans are now asking is what has he done to improve it. Consider these facts:
- 12.7 million unemployed
- Unemployment over 8% for 40 straight months
- A federal deficit that has spiraled wildly out of control
- $60 billion was spent bailing out the auto industry. Since then GM has created 14,000 jobs and invested $1 billion per year – IN CHINA
- $831 billion stimulus plan was a failure
- The nearly $2 trillion health care law is one of the largest tax increases in history
“When President Obama took office he promised Americans that things would be better,” stated AFF Founder Nick Ryan. ”Sadly, he has failed in those promises. His policies of outrageous spending and more taxes have taken the economy from bad to worse. He has no one to blame but himself.”
Better or Worse Script:
VO: President Obama inherited a bad economy. But has he made it better? Or worse?

VO: Three years ago President Obama said his $831 billion dollar stimulus would jump start our economy. But it didn’t work.
VO: Then there’s the health care law that will cost us nearly two trillion dollars.

VO: Do you think we’re on a path towards a healthy economy?
VO: We need real solutions.
