ICYMI: Chairman Priebus: “Obama Policies Hurt Middle Class”

“Yet today, as the president speaks in Reno, he won’t dare ask the question, ‘Are we better off four years later?’

“In November, a vote for President Obama is a vote for more debt and high unemployment, higher taxes and more home foreclosures.
“But a vote for Republicans is a vote for a new direction – for opportunity and prosperity. It’s a vote for policies that will secure a better future for our children and empower the middle class.”
