Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney reacted to the July unemployment rate, calling it “a hammer blow to struggling middle-class families.” More specifically, the increase in the unemployment rate. Mitt Romney has said nothing about the growth in jobs, which was higher than expected. Also in the remark, Mitt Romney spoke about his new plan for the middle class, and said by the end of his first term, twelve millions jobs would have been created. That’s about three times the amount that has been created so far during the Obama Administration. Mitt Romney has been focusing his campaign on the economy.
