America can not afford Democrats to take control of Washington: Contrary to opinion
The last days of the 1980 election campaign were framed by a simple question: "Are you better than you were four years ago?" The answer was a resounding "no" President Donald Trump could ask for a similar question today and the answer would be a deafening "yes".
The US economy is growing after just two years under our command. This was due to the leadership of the president and the support of the Republicans in Congress. On Tuesday, we expect the American people to re-elect the Republicans to offer even more results.
Since Election Day 2016, businesses have created nearly 4.5 million jobs, including about 450,000 paid factory jobs.
The the unemployment rate was not lower in 49 years and we reached low levels for African-Americans and Spanish Americans. Wages and benefits are rising at the fastest pace in nearly a decade and middle-class incomes have never been higher.
After a decade, America is once again the most competitive economy in the world. This recovery is the result of the Republican's sound policy and strong leadership in the White House and Congress.
OUR CONSIDERATION: Choose a Congress that will do its constitutional duty
Together, we have restored bureaucracy at a record pace, we have liberalized American energy, and we have forged new trade agreements that are free, fair and reciprocal, and first set up American jobs and farmers, including a new agreement between the United States, Canada. We are enforcing our laws and securing our borders and we are already starting to build the wall on our southern borders.

And Congress and the president have introduced historic tax cuts, giving an average family of four to $ 2,000 of their hard earned money every year.
While the Republicans have worked, the Democrats have chosen an agenda: resist.
This party wants to restore the progress we have made in the last two years. As the Democrats showed last time in Congress, their agenda meant fewer jobs, lower wages, slower growth and fewer opportunities for working Americans.
But now the policies of democrats are even more liberal – and dangerous – than ever before. They want massive tax increases, weaker borders and a full government takeover of healthcare that will harm our families and our elderly people.
The country can not afford the Democrats to take control of Washington. This explosion began in the constituency in November 2016, but our progress could end in the constituency in November 2018.
After two years of integration, the choice in these elections is between results or resistance. President Trab, and I urge the American people to re-elect the Democratic Majorities in Congress to give more results. Imagine where we will be two years from now.
Mike Pence is Vice President of the United States.
