This news is a couple of months old, but it’s just a reminder of one of the many reasons not to vote for ANY Republicans on Election Day.




How do you feel about someone who is willing to hurt the people the have sworn to represent just because they don’t like the president?

Working Class

I am 63 years old.  My future depends on this presidential election more than any other factor.

             Obama will continue in the tradition of the New Deal which gave the people opportunity, dignity and security.  The America we grew up in, the America the
“Greatest Generation” fought to protect is the America Franklin Roosevelt created.  Now, many Republicans and a few Democrats are working to dismantle the only way of life we have ever known.

            Think, for a moment, of all the government protections we take for granted.           Romney will take us back to the economy of the 1920’s and before where Big government and Big business were one.

             Anyone my age can remember how polluted the air and water was before the EPA when industries were allowed to “police themselves”.  Business in almost all cases follow Romney’s Bain Capital business model where profit, executive salaries and dividends for their stockholders and the only measures of success that matter.  You may think that is great for a company where you own a few shares.  But, is that the kind of company you want to produce the food you feed your children and grandchildren?  Is that the kind of company you want to dedicate you career to?

            I want my daughters and granddaughter to have equal rights, equal pay and equal  opportunity.  I don’t want their paychecks to tell them that they are worth only 70% of a man.

            I want to see workers get the fruit of their labor; not see the bulk of it go the  richest among us who already have more money than they could ever use.

            We need a president who understands the struggles of working families.  A president, like President Obama,  who grew up in a middle class family, who lived and worked with the poorest inChicago.

Who doesn’t like Obamacare?

Do you know anyone who refuses to keep their 22 - 26 year old kid on their health insurance because they disagree, in principle, with Obamacare. How about someone with a child who has a pre-existing conditiond refuses tohave that child insured because they had to switch insurance?

Ronald Reagan sounds an awfully lot like a certain someone else here … It turns out support for the Buffett Rule, aka tax fairness, transcends time and political parties. 

Would Ronald Reagan be a liberal, now?

The number of prescription drug shortages tripled between 2005 and 2010. Besides having serious consequences for people’s health and well-being, drug shortages drive vendors to charge outragous prices for drugs that are normally affordable when in stock. One report found that price-gouging vendors mark up prices on drugs in short supply by 650 percent, on average.
(via By the Numbers: 650 Percent | The White House)
It’s good to believe in free markets and their efficient nature, but one must also be willing to acknowledge when a lack of regulatory oversight causes inefficient developments.
