China is cheating.

Year after year, President Obama has had the chance to label China a currency manipulator. But he hasn't.

When China cheats by holding down the value of their currency compared with ours, it makes their products artificially cheap. It's a rigged set-up that drives American manufacturers and American producers out of business, and kills jobs.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will hold China accountable, and ensure they play by the rules. American goods, and the hardworking people who produce them, deserve a fair shake in the global marketplace.

Help us win in November so we can put an end to China's cheating.

It's time for China to play fair. With your help, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and the Republican team will make sure it does.

Thank you,

Lanhee Chen, Ph.D. Policy Director Romney for President, Inc.

the only way:

I'll cut to the chase:

The only way we're going to re-elect President Obama with a Democratic majority in Congress is if we close this spending gap right now.

A Super PAC connected to Eric Cantor just announced that they're dumping another $X million of ads attacking President Obama and our Democratic candidates.

If we want to win the House, we can't let these Republican lies and distortions go unanswered. We have to raise $X million by Monday's 50 Days Out deadline if we want to match them.

Will you donate $X or more to fight Republican attacks and help win a Democratic House for President Obama?

We know Republicans are going to keep lying about Medicare, Obamacare, and the economy to get votes. It's up to us to set the record straight. On Monday, we'll know where we stand for the 50 days of this campaign.

You know what's at stake in this election. Don't leave one vote on the table.

Donate $X or whatever you can today: [url]
