Postby Spear » Thu May 25, 2017 5:33 pm

Why are you voting for them

Answer THAT question ONLY.

Do NOT tell me why you aren't voting for any other party, I don't want any comparison, I don't even want to see the word Romney/Ryan

Please just tell me why you feel Obama and Biden will push our country in the right direction and make life better for all of us.

and would love to hear why Obama is the right choice.

FORWARD MORE OF THIS: Getting agreement with the Russians to reduce Nuclear Weapons arsenals from being able to destroy the world 300 times to JUST 15 times over.

It did get Obama a Nobel Peace Prize after all.

1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America?s long-term fiscal problems.

2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession.

4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012.

6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs.

8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country?s largest banks via ?stress tests? of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their ?toxic? assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

9. Repealed ?Don?t Ask, Don?t Tell?: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime.

11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator?s position.

12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain ?enhanced? interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions.

13. Improved America?s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S.

14. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans.

15. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.

16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.

I voted for Obama & Biden final twelve months and nonetheless have desire that they might get our united states back heading in the right direction. notwithstanding, that's plenty too early for me to devote one way or the different for 2012. If the rustic remains interior an identical shape in 2012 that that's now, it will be no longer basic for me to come returned to a variety to offer Obama 4 greater years, till the Republicans run somebody thoroughly valueless like Sarah Palin.
