Congressman Mike Honda Today Released the Following Statement in Reaction to President Obama’s Speech in Cleveland, Ohio

“Today we heard the President articulate two fundamentally different visions for how we grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt. We in the Asian American and Pacific Islander community know what’s at stake in this election, and it’s clear that the path laid out by the President is the right course for America’s economic future.

President Obama understands that we must invest in our middle class now in order to create an economy built to last. He believes America prospers when hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone gets a fair shot. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is offering the same failed policies of the past that benefitted a few, crashed our economy and devastated the middle class. The President’s speech in Ohio today was a clear indication of the choice we as AAPIs and all Americans have in this election: We can continue to move forward with President Obama or go backwards with Mitt Romney.”
