CHANTILLY, Va. — Arguing that President Obama’s policies have harmed small businesses and divided Americans, Mitt Romney pledged Wednesday that he would ease regulations, increase domestic energy production and reduce taxes to right the nation’s economy.
“Democrats say they like a strong economy. They just don’t like business very much and you see the economy is made up of nothing but business and so we have to encourage entrepreneurs. I will make America a great place for entrepreneurs again, for small business, for women-owned business, for men-owned business,” Romney told supporters in a warehouse in the suburb of Washington, D.C.
Romney made the remarks in front of a group of female small business owners in an overt appeal to female voters. He was introduced by his wife, Ann.
“We appreciate all these women being here. It is, it is a great country, and it’s exciting to see what women can do,” she said to applause. “Yes! We know! We know what women can do. And how wonderful is the world, and how women actually do make the world go round."
