Address America: Jobs focus of convention feedback

August 28, 2012 by NCC Staff


The National Constitution Center is in Tampa and will be in Charlotte getting citizen feedback as part of our Address America campaign.

Address America asks people to give us a "stump speech,”  in exactly six words, that sums up their thoughts on key election issues.

On Monday, we asked people who were also dealing with some weather issues in Tampa for their six-word stump speeches.

And jobs seemed to be a topic on everyone’s mind.

“We need [a] strong economy and jobs,” said one voter.

“Let’s try competence for a change,” said another.

“Stop blaming others. Let’s solve problems,” was another rallying cry.

We also ran into Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett, who gave us his own stump speech.

“More jobs, less taxes, Romney Ryan,” said Corbett.
