5. Obama care was a huge flop.
One of Obama's major campaign issues was nation-wide health coverage. Today, almost three years later, we're no closer to that goal. In fact, the bill he passed isn't even close to being nation wide, as there are over 1300 exemptions to the bill. Entire states, unions, government employees, corporations are immune to the bill.
4. Vowed to lower debt; debt is now higher than ever.
Another one of Obama's major issues was the budget, debt and deficit. Taxes were too low, spending was too high, and the difference between the two was huge. Today it's even worse. Taxes haven't gone up (thankfully?), but spending hasn't gone down. It's not only gone up, it's gone WAY up. If Bush was bad on spending, then Obama is horrendous.
3. Vowed to end the wars; now in more conflicts than before.
Yet another one of Obama's main issues was the conflicts overseas. He promised to bring our young service men and women home, but in fact, he's sent them to even more places than they were before. Fighting has extended into Pakistan, and there are even troops staged waiting to enter Libya.2. Government pay is out of control.
Salary of the US President ..................$400,000
Salary of retired US Presidents .............$180,000
Salary of House/Senate .......................$174,00
Salary of Speaker of the House ............$223,500
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders ...... $193,400
...Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN $38,000. Where do you think He wants to make his cuts? To the Military pay, of course. Let's not forget about the whole teacher's strike where they're demanding even more money, when they already are making on average $70,000 a year when you're including their benefits. Ludicrousness.And lastly, my favorite;
1. He hasn't kept a single promise!
At least President Bush did what he said he was going to do. Even if you didn't like the man, you knew what he was going to do politically. It feels like Obama uses a D12 to make his decisions. Ehhhh, today I feel like sending troops to Pakistan. Ehhhh, today I feel like taking some out of Iraq. Ehhh, nah, lets send them to Libya. Hmmm, I think I'll take a vacation for a month. Deuces!
Anyhow, join me in saying Nope in 2012.
Oh, this one is probably a better #2 than the #2 that I posted (but, government pay is a huge issue for me, so I had to include it). African Americans are worse off today than they were in 2008. And they are more worse when compared to 2008 values than any other ethnic group.
