WATCH: Organizing For Action Rallies For President’s Economic Plan In New Ad

Organizing For Action, the non-profit 501(c)(4) that succeeded President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, released a new ad on Friday highlighting the president’s economic speech tour. The minute-long video, titled “A Better Bargain,” features points from the president’s speech in Illinois on Wednesday, in which he pushed for legislation that would create jobs, improve education, and reduce poverty.

“Thanks to the grit, resilience, and determination of the American people, we’ve been able to clear away the rubble from the financial crisis. We’ve started to lay a new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth,” Obama said. “But we’re not there yet. What we need is not a three-month plan, or even a three-year plan, we need a long-term American strategy.”

The president’s economic plan, which the White House calls “Securing The American Dream And Strengthening The Middle Class,” urges Congress to pass policies that would allow the federal government to invest in industries that help middle-class Americans gain the skills they need to earn a living wage, while simultaneously cutting the country’s deficit.

“I won’t be able to do it alone, so I’m going to be calling on all of us to take up this cause,” Obama said. “Good jobs, better bargain for the middle class and for folks who are working to get into the middle class, an economy that grows from the middle out that’s what we need.”

This week, the president outlined his plan to create jobs and strengthen the middle class in speeches in Illinois and Florida. Next week, he will continue his economic tour and give a similar speech at an Amazon fulfillment center in Tennessee.

      Yep, Recognizing_Truth, and to people who have actual paid attention to the Bible it is the restatement of the Teachings of Jesus Christ. Of course, the vain ‘super-Christians’ skip over what Jesus Christ actually taught and substitute their personal Messiahs’ (Ryan, Koch, Alderson, etc) message the we should all worship money and the rich.

        Amen my son. Think about the rich man who approached Jesus Christ and asked him what he should do to attain the kingdom of heaven. Christ told him to sell every single thing that he owned and give it to the poor. He later said to the crowd on the Mount of Olives, that a rich man had the same chance of entering the kingdom of heaven that a camel had of passing through the eye of a needle; advising them that whatever you do for the least of thee…you’ve done it for me.

        I am not a Christian, but I frankly don’t recognize the Christianity that the American political right always tries to drape themselves in. They seem to focus one hell of a lot more on the Old Testament than they do on the New Testament.

        Yup, Every word out of these so called ‘Christians’ mouths is very much the opposite of true Christian values and his teachings. The sad part is they truly believe their own twisted ideas of Christianity. If Christ came back tomorrow they would be the first in line to turn against him.
