In Obama for America’s new television ad – “Main Street” – Americans from across the country discuss how President Obama’s policies are helping move our economy forward. When the President took office, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. But the President’s policies brought us back from the brink and we’re now moving forward again – businesses have added 5.2 million private sector jobs over the past two and a half years, the unemployment rate is at its lowest level since January 2009, and consumer confidence is at a five-year high. The President understands there’s more work to do to get Americans back to work and restore economic security for the middle-class, but as the hard-working Americans in OFA’s new ad highlight, the President’s plans are building an economy meant to last – from the middle out, not the top down.
“Main Street” will air in Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, and Virginia.
