Mitt Romney on Promoting Economic Freedom in America
September 19, 2012
Since our founding, America has promoted personal responsibility, the dignity of work and the value of education. Those values made our nation the hope of the earth and our economy the envy of the world. Efforts that promote hard work and personal responsibility over government dependency make America strong. When the economy is growing and Americans are working, everyone involved has a shared sense of achievement, not to mention the basic sense of pride that comes with the paycheck they earn. [..] Economic freedom is the only force that has consistently succeeded in creating sustained prosperity and lifting people out of poverty.
