Yes, we all are
Obama prevented a depression, saved Banks, saved the auto industry, created more jobs in his first two years than Bush did in eight years. Had the GOP not filibustered in record numbers all the jobs bills the Dems proposed, unemployment would be much lower. If the GOP hadn't laid off millions of jobs in the public sector (Police, Teachers, Fire Fighters) our unemployment rate would be lower. The GOP won the House on 2010 on the jobs issue yet they haven't proposed a single bill.
Bush increased our debt by over $5 trillion with the items he kept off the budget and unpaid for; the two wars (one was illegal), Medicaid Part D, and tax breaks for the wealthy. Obama put them in the budget. That's how the GOP can now lie and say it's his fault!
Obama Killed Osama, desecrated Al Queda, led a coalition that killed Khadaffi, reformed student loans, increased TAP/Pell grants for students, slowed immigration, put more money into border security than Bush and deported more illegals than Bush, signed the Lilly Ledbetter law granting equal pay for women, credit card reform, ended 'Don't Ask Don't Tell,' Provided many tax incentives and breaks for small businesses and DID NOT raise taxes on the middle class.
But the biggest; passed Health Care Reform after over 100 of trying. Insurance companies can't drop you or deny you coverage and the CBO says it will save us billions over time. Do we really want to go back to a time where you have to hold a Spaghetti Dinner at the local VFV Lodge to pay for a family member's treatments so you don't have to sell your house?
Romeny/Ryan's plan is more of the same failed policies of Bush with even more tax breaks for the wealthiest whose tax rate is what it was in the 1950's. They will raise taxes on the middle class and take away services such as Medicaid and Medicare to pay for it. Not to mention allow our infrastructure to fall apart.
Believe what you will with all the conservative media like this radio station and Fox News but they are lying to you and they are shills for big business. Hell, they actually got average Americans hating other Americans because they are poor or worse; in a big, bad union. Uniosn have helped all workers in the USA. Most people are closer to these people than the Mitt Romney's in this country.
Romney gave McCain 22 years of tax statements when he was being considered for Vice President in 2008. McCain picked Palin. What does that tell you? When asked if Reid was lying (about his statement that Romney hasn't paid taxes in 10 years) McCain refused to answer.
The GOP will finish the job of destroying the middle class. And they will start another war in Iran and sacrifice more Americans to increase the profit margin of the Corporatocracy.
Yes of course yes. The above is a transcript of your great hero listing his accomplishments. If we as a nation go back to his catastrophic policies we can turn out the lights. Don't believe the lies you hear on WBEN.
They're better off in Massachusetts.
Thanks to RomneyCare.
Wake up Sheeple!!
NO we are Not better off.
Oh yea it's Bush's fault.
Here's my hard earned money Oh you don't want to work here's more.
