Romney Calls Economic Growth Report Discouraging

by AP posted Oct 26 2012 10:35AM


     WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says a new report on the nation's economic growth is "discouraging."
 
     The Commerce Department reported Friday that the U.S. economy expanded at a slightly faster 2 percent annual rate from July through September. But Romney suggested that pickup wasn't sufficient to create enough jobs and improve take-home pay. He argued he would do better.
 
     The report comes as the GOP nominee prepared to deliver an economic speech in the swing state of Iowa. 
 
     Romney is focusing on the public's economic concerns heading into the final days of the campaign as polls suggest Americans say they trust him more than President Barack Obama to handle the issue.
