YouTube description: In the face of 41 straight months of unemployment above 8 percent, President Obama is calling for a tax hike on nearly a million business owners. In the Weekly Republican Address, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) says there's a better path forward: "The way to an American economic comeback, the way to help those out of work today find a paycheck, is to unleash the forces of job creation in America." Portman calls for comprehensive tax reform, debt reduction, scaling back burdensome regulations and increasing domestic energy production. "The government-knows-best approach of the past few years has given us the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression. It's time to turn things around. We know we can restore America's greatness by harnessing the power of free people and free enterprise," he says.
