Women in the Obama Economy - Left in the Dust

It's highly offensive that the Obama campaign thinks women either haven't noticed -- or just don't care -- how devastating this administration's failed economic policies have been for us.

Did they ask the hundreds of thousands of women who've lost their jobs since President Obama came to Washington? Or the 5.5 million women who are unemployed? I guess not.

Thanks to President Obama's imaginary recovery, the median earnings for women declined by nearly $1,000. And the poverty rate among women is 16.3% -- the highest rate in 17 years.

And as CNN Money stated, "The 'mancession' has morphed into the 'hecovery,' leaving women workers largely in the dust."

Make no mistake about it -- women are worried.

And they're not just worried about themselves -- they're worried about their children's future. They don't want them to be saddled with debt from our generation, which has surpassed a record-high $16 trillion.

This isn't the recovery we deserve -- and it's a not a real recovery if it means that women have to take on two or three jobs just to afford to put gas in their cars and food on the table.

Unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney gets it: women drive the economy. His pro-growth, pro-woman plan for a stronger middle class means more jobs, more take-home pay, and better opportunities.

Donate now to help make Mitt's plan a reality -- and get American women back to work.

American women can't afford to be left in the dust for four more years. We need to act now.
