Lisa Stickan, the Chairman of the Young Republican National Federation released the following statement:
Four years ago, Barack Obama made promises to younger voters to deliver "hope and change". Four years later, these same voters are faced with a job market where 53% of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed.
President Obama has completely failed our generation by driving us farther into debt while worsening our job market and economic opportunity with his big government mentality.
Meanwhile, the President has never stopped campaigning. According to the Washington Post, he has already had more first-term fundraisers than George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter combined. This President would rather campaign, making more promises he will never fulfill, than govern our country and fight for average Americans.
Here in Ohio, we are fortunate to have brave, conservative leadership from Governor John Kasich, who has demonstrated that Republican leaders can deliver on their promises of delivering jobs and prosperity through a smaller, more responsive government.
Young Republicans in Ohio and across this country will fight every day to return our country to the path of economic prosperity for all Americans, especially our generation who President Obama has failed with broken promises and little hope.
