Wasserman Schultz says November election choice between finishing what started and beginning of end for middle class

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz told Wisconsin Dems the November election boils down to a fundamental question of whether inauguration day 2013 is the day they finish the changes they started or the day that marks the beginning of the end of the middle class.

“Here’s the good news,” she said. "Our opponents don’t get to decide the answer to that question. We do.”

Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., also made a pledge to the crowd that no one will outwork Dems this fall, saying it is her motto for this year’s elections. She drove home that point by noting she didn’t say no one would outwork “me” but “us,” adding the party needs their help to knock on doors and make phone calls.

If they do they, Wisconsin Dems will help send the president back to the White House for a second term to finish what they started in 2008 “and be sure that American remains now and forever the greatest country on the face of the Earth.”

Wasserman Schultz contrasted that with what she said was Mitt Romney’s approach to the election. She reminded the crowd that after Romney won the primary in her home state of Florida, he told his supporters they must not forget what the election was really about. She said she figured it would be about getting America back to work. Instead, he said it was about beating Obama. She called the comments incredibly disappointing and out of touch.

“This election isn’t about Barack Obama,” she said. “It’s about you and your families. It’s about us. It’s about the worker pounding the pavement looking for a job. It’s about the mom wondering if she’ll be able to afford college for her kids and it’s about the young person wondering if he’ll ever be able to pay back his student loans.”
