This agreement sets a precedent that will remain in place as long as the President in office: deficit reduction must be achieved in a balanced way. Everyone must pay their fair share because that’s how our economy works best.

Under this bipartisan deal:

The President spoke directly to voters about his vision for an economy that grows from the middle out, while Mitt Romney spent the night on the defensive, doubled down on the same bad ideas that crashed the economy, and got testy when he was pushed on specifics.

Romney confirmed that he opposes a single dollar in new revenue to reduce the deficit and continued to hide the details about how he’d accomplish his plans because he knows they don’t add up and are bad for the middle class.

OFA launched its “For All” initiative to engage young Americans between the ages of 18 to 29. It speaks to the shared values of President Obama and young Americans across the country – fairness, opportunity, liberty and justice – and the promise that if we all work together, we can keep moving our country forward.

“For All” asks supporters to post a photo on social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram that highlights why we are greater together regardless of race, background, sexual orientation or zip code. It takes three easy steps:

President Obama believes education is critical to creating an economy built to last, keeping America competitive and growing our economy from the middle class out.

President Clinton believes that voters face a clear choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt.

Energy Independence: President Obama believes America’s energy independence is critical to creating jobs here at home and creating an economy built to last.

President Obama is creating jobs by investing in homegrown energy. His plan keeps investing in promising clean energy industries like wind power, which supports about 7,000 jobs in Iowa and 75,000 jobs across the country.

We’ve doubled the amount of electricity America generates from wind since the President took office. We’ve built the equivalent of 12 Hoover Dams’ worth of wind energy in the past four years. That’s creating American-made clean energy that can power nearly 13 million homes.

Mitt Romney’s latest welfare ad is a complete and utter lie. If Romney wants to talk about issues, he should start by taking his own advice.

As governor, Romney stifled start-up creation in Massachusetts. He claimed his business experience would help Massachusetts small businesses, but he failed to create an economic environment that would attract entrepreneurs and encourage small business owners to grow and hire. Instead small business activity slowed dramatically.

Mitt Romney has been deliberately twisting President Obama’s words around to falsely suggest that the President doesn’t value small businesses or the entrepreneurial spirit that built this country. His distortions and accusations are flat-out wrong.
