The United States of America is approaching towards the direction of a “Greece-like setting” with inadequate job opportunities for youth,presumed Republican presidential nominee told college students in Ohio as he and President battle for support from young voters.
Mitt Romney said yesterday at Otterbein University in Westerville, a town of Columbus. Instead of focusing exclusively on overhauling the economy when he inherited a recession in 2009, Obama followed “his own program to metamorphosed America” that piloted to an anemic recovery and did not formulate a future course of action for a sustainable growth”.
Furthermore he said, “At some point we have ended being the kind of free- enterprise nation the founders envisaged, that’s what’s at risk, that’s what’s at stake in this election.”
Romney’s tripe to the schools were followed by Obama’s visit this week to college campuses in three other states -- North Carolina, Iowa and Colorado -- and an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” all efforts to appeal to young voters.
Romney told his Otterbein spectators that Obama’s deliberation on passing the revamp of the health-care system when he first took office and the rise of U.S. Budget deficits have put the country “on track to becoming Greece,” with its debt crisis.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that if this president were to be re-elected, we will eventually face a Greece-like situation where people will speculate whether they want to loan money to America, and loan money to America at low interest rates,” Romney said.
The former Massachusetts governor criticized Obama’s tax policy and said, “If your priority is to punish people, President Obama’s the right guy to vote for. If your priority is to get more good jobs, I’m the right guy to vote for.”
