HARTFORD, Conn. – Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman criticized Republican policies related to the economy Wednesday and touted the Democratic Party as the party of the middle class.

“This election is about a choice between two competing visions. One vision – the Democratic vision – says our economy can be built to last from the middle out by giving all Americans a fair shot at getting into the middle class and achieving the American Dream,” Wyman said at an event sponsored by Americans United for Change.

The national group, according to FactCheck.org, sprang from the ashes of Americans United to Protect Social Security — a labor-funded liberal group formed in 2005 to oppose then-President George W. Bush’s Social Security proposal. It changed its name in 2006. The group is a 501(c)4 organization and does not have to disclose its donors.

Hartford’s Bushnell Park was one of the first stops Americans United for Change made on what will be a four week, 18 state bus tour to support Democrats running for state and federal offices across the country.
