Former Rep. Artur Davis

This is a powerful speech!

“When they say, ‘We have a duty to grow government even when we cannot afford it,’ does it sound like compassion to you or does it sound like recklessness,” Davis continued. “When you hear the party that glorified Occupy Wall Street blast success, when you hear them minimize the genius of the men and women who make jobs out of nothing, is that what you teach your children about work?”

“When they tell you America is this unequal place, where the powerful trample on the powerless, does that sound like the country your children or your spouse risked their lives for in Iraq or Afghanistan,” Davis continued. “Do you even recognize the America they are talking about?”

“John Kennedy asked us what we can do for America. This Democratic party asks what can government give you.”
