Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard Comments on Second Presidential Debate

Staff Report

From the Office of Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard

AUBURN – Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard (R – Auburn) on Tuesday night released the following statement in response to the second debate between Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, which was sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates and held on the campus of Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York:

“According to President Obama tonight, jobs are plentiful, gas is affordable and our taxes are far too low.  We all know this is far from the truth and America today is not the perfect Utopia he painted during the debate.

Mitt Romney is a proven job creator who offered real solutions based upon sound conservative principles and ideals.  During this debate, Gov. Romney gave Obama a much needed dose of reality and held Obama accountable for the liberal, job-killing actions his administration has taken throughout the past four years.

Tonight we saw a clear difference between our conservative policies of lower taxes and less spending and the liberals plan of higher taxes, higher deficits and more spending on government programs such as Obamacare.

The Romney-Ryan team is 3 and 0 in debates thus far, and will likely sweep the series when the last one is held on Monday.”
