Your voice: the economy online comments

November 3, 2012 

We want to hear from you on important issues facing our nation. Today: the economy.

President Obama says the economy is heading in the right direction in part because he created more than 5 million new jobs to help the country begin to dig out of the Great Recession, but critics question that number. Mitt Romney says the president hasn’t done enough and that he would create 12 million new jobs in four years, but some economists say the economy will generate that many new jobs regardless.

What do you think? Who is more likely to turn the U.S. economy around?
