GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Former President Bill Clinton made the strongest case he could last night in Green Bay for another Obama Presidency.
Clinton spoke to an audience of 2,200 people at UW-Green Bay.
Clinton says we are not where we want to be, but the country is at a four year high for home and car buying and this past year experienced the biggest drop in the jobless rate in 17 years, moving from 9% to 7.8%.
Clinton spent about 50 minutes talking about Obama’s successes in healthcare, student loans, the jobless rate, and his leadership in the auto bailout.
Clinton advocated for a return to tax rates for the wealthy that were in place during his Presidency.
Clinton also criticized Mitt Romney’s proposed budget that would cut taxes for the rich. In order to pay for it, he would have to gut the federal budget that effects programs for the middle to pay for it.
The former President went point by point through Obama’s successful policies and contrasted them to Romney’s vision for the country.
Clinton says Obama will build a new modern 21st century economy, by investing in education and programs that will train workers for jobs that employers are looking to fill, but we have to make the right decision.
