Obama: "We Are Better Off Than We Were 4 Years Ago"

The Obama for America Presidential campaign released a new television advertisement titled “The Question” that they say affirmatively answers the fundamental question of why the American people are better off today than they were four years ago, when President Obama took office amidst the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
 

The Obama for America campaign says that "It comes down to this: when President Obama came into office, America was losing 800,000 private sector jobs a month and had lost almost 4.4 million jobs. Today, under the President’s leadership, businesses have created 4.6 million new jobs in 30 consecutive months of private-sector job growth." 


“The Question” will air in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia. 


Meanwhile, the Mitt Romney Presidential campaign just introduced a state-by-state comparison tool which claims to show how much better off Americans would be if Romney were elected and how badly they have done under an Obama administration.


The Romney comparison tool under "Florida" says that there are 1,617,176 more people on Food Stamps and that gas prices have risen $1.882 per gallon to $3.63 in the Sunshine State since Obama took office.
