Bi Partisan President Barack Obama and NJ Gov. Chris Christie Vow "They will NOT QUIT" until Cleanup & Recovery are Complete!

President Barack Obama and Governor Chris Christie soberly toured the destruction wrought by superstorm Sandy on Wednesday. They assured victims "we will not quit" until cleanup and recovery are complete.

GM/Chrysler OUT Romney for his LYING ADS about Outsourcing Jobs to China!

Desperate Romney/Ryan have been CAUGHT in Numerous LIES and GM/CHRYSLER are Outing Them!
HP Reports: Mitt Romney's round of highly dubious (LYING) television and radio ads suggesting that Chrysler and GM are shipping American jobs to China has managed to OFFEND both car companies.

A spokesperson for General Motors told the Detroit Free Press that the ad was CRASS and MISLEADING.
“We've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days,” GM spokesman Greg Martin said. “No amount of campaign (Republican) politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country.”
The day before, meanwhile, Chrysler Group LLC CEO Sergio Marchionne penned a letter to the Detroit News insisting that there was no validity to the idea that the company was shipping Jeep production overseas. Instead, he noted, the company was looking to open new factories in China to meet increasing demand there.
The Romney campaign has showed no willingness to back off THEIR LIES that American Jeep workers may end up losing their jobs. In fact, the campaign has released a radio ad in Ohio to complement the one it has on television there that repeats the insinuation.
ROMNEY'S LIES: "Under President Obama, GM cut 15,000 American jobs, but they are planning to double the number of cars built in China, which means 15,000 more jobs for China. And now comes word that Chrysler plans to start making Jeeps in, you guessed it, China."
The Romney campaign released the ads before it was rebuked by two of the nation's top automakers. But the criticism seems unlikely to change the campaign's mindset. It never announced the ads to begin with, suggesting the campaign is trying to surreptitiously throw the kitchen sink at President Barack Obama during the election's closing days.

Hurricane Sandy Update: President Obama For FEMA, Romney Against FEMA!

We have a clear choice on Election Day next Tuesday and we need to understand each candidate's position before we Vote. Consider the needs of your family, especially if a Natural Disaster like Hurricane Sandy happens in your neighborhood. Do you want FEMA? Or Not?
President Obama SUPPORTS FEMA.  Mitt Romney OPPOSES FEMA.
During the campaign season (see the video) Romney said, “(FEMA) send it to states or the private sector.  (Disaster Recovery) We can’t afford to do those things. It is immoral in my view... We can’t afford to keep doing those things. They make no sense at all!” 
Can you imagine Romney as President telling future Hurricane Victims crying for help: "Take your concerns back to your states or to the private sector. We can't afford those things." What would Governor Christie or Governor Cuomo say to Romney? A State cannot handle the costs of a disaster the size of a Hurricane like Sandy or Katrina. Would they be satisfied with a bus load of canned goods when tens of thousands had their homes destroyed or left without power? Their local infrastructure destroyed?

Governors like Governor Christie (who said today on Fox News that he refuses to do a photo opp with Romney. He is too busy working with President Obama and getting his people cared for) or Governor Cuomo DEMAND FEDERAL HELP for their people. President Obama said to FEMA as they are providing HELP to the victims of Hurricane Sandy: "Do not figure out why we can't do something. I want you to figure out how we CAN do something. I want you to cut through the red tape; I want you to cut through the bureaucracy. There is no excuse for inaction at this point. I want every agency moving forward to make sure we are getting the resources where they are needed as quickly as possible."
He added, "I told the mayors and governors if they're getting no for an answer somewhere in the federal government, they can call me personally at the White House."
We can all support the victims by donating to the Red Cross. Donate here.

Hurricane Sandy Update: Rep. Gov. Chris Cristie said "President Obama has been OUTSTANDING!"

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie praised President Barack Obama today, as his state begins to rebuild from the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. “I have to say, the administration, the president, himself and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been OUTSTANDING with us,” Christie said on Good Morning America. “We have a great partnership with them.”
Christie told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that President Obama called him on Monday night around midnight to ask if there was anything else the federal government could do to help. Christie added that they worked together to move forward with a Major Disaster Declaration for New Jersey. The Major Disaster Declaration provides funding for recovery efforts, including infrastructure projects, temporary housing, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property loss and assistance to individuals and businesses. “He worked on that last night with me…offered any other assets that we needed to help,” Christie said. “I want to thank the president personally for his personal attention to this...President Obama has been Outstanding!”

Appearing on Fox News, Christie said the storm is bigger than the election. “I have a job in New Jersey that is much bigger than presidential politics,” Gov. Chris Christie said on the show Fox & Friends. “I couldn’t care less about that.”

Meanwhile, 50's retro Romney, in a political photo op while campaigning in Ohio, collected canned goods in a bus claiming he was going to deliver them to storm victims.
The Red Cross has asked ALL Americans to send their monetary donations to the Red Cross and not to send canned goods or products which are difficult to receive or distribute during these type of emergencies. The question is, why didn't the billionaire, in private, just sent a $10M check?

"My Party (REPUBLICANS) FULL OF RACISTS!" The Honorable Col. Lawrence Wilkerson

Ed: "what do these comments against Gen Powell say about the Republican party?"

Col. Wilkerson: "My party unfortunately is the bastion of many of those people who are basing their decisions on race. My party is full of racists...the real reason they want President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character or his competence as Commander in Chief as President and has EVERYTHING to do with color of his skin."

Ed: "What does this say about Romney to allow Sununu to say this (Racist Attack against Colin Powell) without any repercussion what so ever?"

Col Wilkerson: "It says Mitt Romney will use any tactic whatsoever to win the White House!"

The Heroic General Colin Powell Endorses President Obama

Today, American Hero, General Colin Powell, one of the country's most respected Republicans, again endorsed President Barack Obama's bid for re-election, citing the Democratic president's efforts to wind down the war in Afghanistan and tackle terrorism as well as an improving our U.S. economy.

"I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on," the Republican, who also backed Obama in 2008, told "CBS This Morning." He added, "I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012."
President Obama welcomed General Powell's endorsement at a rally in Richmond, Virginia. "I was proud and humbled to learn that we have General Colin Powell's support in this campaign. I'm grateful to him for his lifetime of service to his country both as a soldier and as a diplomat," he told the crowd.
The President earlier called General Powell to thank him,
In his endorsement, General Powell said domestic issues such as the economy, healthcare and education loomed large in his support for a second term for President Obama. "When he took over, the country was in very, very difficult straits, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times, close to a depression ... we were in real trouble," Powell said, adding that housing market has started to pick up, the auto industry has recovered and consumer confidence is rising.
"I think generally we've come out of the dive and starting to gain altitude," he said. "I see that we are starting to rise up," he said, but added problems such as unemployment and the housing market still need work.
also criticized Romney's foreign policy as inconsistent and questioned the former Massachusetts governor's ability to address the deficit and looming defense cuts.
"I'm not quite sure which Governor Romney we'd be getting with respect to foreign policy," he told CBS, calling Romney's foreign policy "a moving target."
As for the U.S. budget, he added: "It's essentially, let's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things, but that compensation does not cover all the cuts intended or the expenses associated with defense."
Powell, a moderate Republican, served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush. Some of Romney's advisers are more conservative veterans of the Bush administration.
"There's some very, very strong neo-conservative views that are presented by the governor that I have some trouble with," Powell said.
A retired four-star general, Powell was also chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under former President George H.W. Bush and was national security advisor under former President Ronald Reagan.

Women Beware! Republicans' War Against Women: Paul Ryan, Mourdock, Akin

Women should beware if Republicans get elected in November. Republican candidates are very vocal with their attacks against women's Healthcare and against their Right to Choose. Todd Akin talks about "Legitimate Rape." Richard Mourdock says if a woman gets pregnant during rape, that it's a "gift from" the god he believes in. He even wants to arrest them! Now he's saying he's "Gained Voters since he made his comments."
In Illinois, Republican State Rep. Roger Rivard said some girls “rape so easy.” Then, Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh denied the reality of life-saving abortions.

  Paul Ryan - if elected - the person who would be next in line to the white house - says rape is "just another method of conception." (go to the 1 minute mark) He said this even after he asked misogynist Akin to step down.

Women of America are standing strong against the Republican candidates WAR AGAINST WOMEN! We will NOT Allow Men to make decisions for us regarding our Healthcare, our right to choose, or threaten to Arrest us. This is America! We are ALL equal! These Republican Men WILL NOT Rule Us! WE PROMISE TO REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!

Romney Supporter and Racist Donald Trump want our President to "Show Him His Papers!"

Racist Donald Trump's so called "big announcement" about the presidential campaign turned out to be a silly offer Trump foolishly claims President Obama can't refuse.
Crazy Trump has offered to write a $5 million check to the charity of Obama's choice if — and only if — our president releases all of his college and passport records.

Attention Craver Trump will stoop to any level to promote his fellow Republican Romney. This despicable act of disrespect to our President and to our Country illustrates how extreme and racist Most Right Wing Extremists' agenda really is. Romney is just despicable for not chastising racist Trump. They should BOTH be ashamed!

Romney's Right Wing Racist Supporters: Palin's RACIST Attacks Against Our President

In a Facebook post today, Palin wrote: “Obama’s Shuck and Jive Ends With Benghazi Lies.” She also used the term in the text of the post, which concludes, “President Obama’s shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.”

As we all know, the term "Shuck and Jive" originated in the Slavery Days when Black Slaves were tasked by their Masters to dance as they harvested crops.
What a despicable and racist term to use by a Romney supporter.

Romney's LIES and Flip Flops Throughout Last Night's Debate (Romnesia)! Denies His Op-Ed "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt!"

A day after the Final foreign policy-focused debate, President Obama rightfully criticized Romney’s rhetoric as "wrong and reckless."
As the American Public witnessed, Romney LIED THROUGH HIS TEETH! (Romnesia)
Romney LIED when he said he did NOT write his Op-Ed "Let Detroit go Bankrupt."
Romney LIED when he said he supported withdrawal of our troops in Afghanistan in 2014.
Romney LIED about his views. So hawkish before the debate, now agreeing with our President.

Etchy Sketchy.
It is NOW Abundantly Clear to the American Public - Romney CANNOT BE TRUSTED!

Today, before an audience of 11,000, our President renewed his view of Romney's Flip Flopping. "In a world of new threats and profound challenges, America needs leadership that is strong and is steady. Gov. Romney’s foreign policy has been wrong and reckless. Last night, he was all over the map," said our President Obama. "Did you notice that?"
The president truly stated that Romney was inconsistent start-to-finish at the debate, on issues from pursuing Osama bin Laden to rescuing the auto industry. To drive the point home, Obama revived the term, "Romnesia."
“Florida,” Mr. Obama said, “You know me. You can trust what I say.” Romney’s debate performance was “at least Stage 3 Romnesia. If you say you love American cars in the debate, but you wrote an article called ‘Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,’ you might have Romnesia,” Mr. Obama said. “If you can’t remember the policies on your Web site or the promises that you’ve been making over the six years you’ve been running for president, if you can’t even remember what you said last week, remember, Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions.”
The president said Americans were used to seeing politicians change their positions from four years ago. “We’re not accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from four days ago,” he said.
Our President shared a brochure of his jobs and education plans, and said his “math adds up. Compare my plan to Governor Romney’s.”

Ole Moderate Mitt Resorts to Policies from the 1920s with Horses and Bayonets!

Obama unleashed a series of zingers all casting Romney’s foreign policy ideas as old — sometimes really, really old. Obama started by tearing into Romney’s description of Russia as a “No. 1 geopolitical foe.”
“And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years,” Obama said, reviving a bit of snark he’s used on the campaign trail. “But, governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.”
(Romney answered the criticism by saying he was distinguishing geopolitical foes from national security threats. Iran is the greatest security threat, he said, but Russia continues to regularly oppose U.S. aims at the United Nations.)
Obama reached quite a bit further back for his next, practiced attack. Answering Romney’s familiar critique about the Navy having fewer ships today than under past presidents, Obama said Romney “hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works.”
“Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines,” he said. “And so the question is not a game of Battleship where we're counting ships. It's — it's what are our capabilities.”
But Obama most wants to link Romney to a more recent era. In his first answer, Obama tied Romney to the foreign policy of former President George W. Bush, noting that Romney supported the invasion of Iraq.

LIVE BLOG: The Last Presidential Debate - Let the Games Begin!




1. Changing Middle East - New face of terrorism:
. Romney: Complains about Arab Spring. al qaeda. Muslim Brotherhood. Greatest threat - Iran, closer to nuclear weapon.
can't kill way out of events.
reject violent, radical extremism.
. Obama: Keep american people safe. done this. ended war in iraq. al qaeda's core leadership descimated. let them take care of own secuirty.
Libya - when we received phone call did all we could to secure americans in harms way; investigate what happened; go after those who killed americans. I and Americans took leadership in organizing Coalition. Liberate country. No boots on ground. Tens of thousands of libyans saying America is friend.
Romney strategy all over the map.
. Romney: strategy go after bad guys. get muslim people to reject muslim leadership on their own. go after anti american leaders. help world reject terrorists. economic development. better education. gender equality. rule of law. however see chaos now. egypt - make sure we see progress across middle east. north mali taken over by al qaeda. syria. iran. path to nuclear weapons.
. Obama: glad you realize al qaeda a threat. You said russia was a threat. you seem to want to import social policies of 1980s. A few weeks ago you said you wanted more boots in iraq. go into iraq with no WMD. troops in iraq to this day. No nuclear treaties in Russia. You said no timeline in afghanistan. Now you said maybe or depends. send mixed messages to our troops and allies. We need strong, steady leadership, not all over the map. (realize you have no experience.)
. Romney: don't concur with my own record. not accurate. talking middle east of rising tide. attacking me is not an agenda.stem the type of violence. russia is a geo political vote. and iran is the largest security we face. no rose colored glasses to russia. after election he'll get more backbone.
. Obama: what I would not have done is more boots on ground in Iraq. Just a few weeks ago you said more boots on ground in iraq. Here's one thing I've learned as commander in chief. you stand clear. You just gave a speech few weeks ago - iraq. make sure countries support our counter terrorism strategies. protect religious minorities and women. develop economic capabilities. we can't continue to do nation building in these regions. help us maintain american leadership we need.

Obama: organize international community. hasad has to go. sanctions. made sure isolated. humanitarian assistance. assist opposition. syrians will have to determine own future. all we do is in consultation with allies including israel. what is happening in syria is heart breaking. but can't get more entangled. if we do so know who we are helping. don't put arms in hands of those against us. hasad's day's are numbered.

Romney: humanitarian disaster. iran's only ally. syria remove hassad is priority. no military involvement there. work through partners. id resp within syria. bring them together in counsel. take lead in syria. arms to defend themselves.but arms not turned against us. need effective leadership effort in syria. relationship of friendship of those that take his place. afraid - let un deal with it. look to allies instead of playing leadership role.
Obama: we are leadership role. mobilizing humanitarian. Syria: stop massacre. make sure kadafhi, that he didn't stay there. romney suggested this was mission creep. imagine if we'd pulled out at that point. more american blood on his hands than bin laden. we made sure allies stayed with us when we took him out.
Romney: would you go beyond what admin would do? don't want to have military involved in syria. obj to replace hassad. put in place new govt that is responsible, armed and friendly to us. Not necessary. This should have been time for american leadership. we should have taken lead. make sure they have arms.
Obama: what you heard romney say - no different ideas - because we are doing exactly what we should be doing.
Obama: america stand with democracy. notion to run over young people in tanks -- no. now that we have dem leadership in egypt, make sure they take resp. to minorities, rights of women, abide by treaty with israel. make sure cooperate re: counter terrorism. we will help them re: deve own economy. Their young people aspiration similar to our own young people. organize how to rebuild their own economy. for americans to be successful, here at home - dev our own ecnomy, education system and energy.
Romney: support mubarik? No. we should have had better vision for future. worked more aggresively in region to have a better represetative form of govt. but felt same as Obama re: develop their own country. Our mission: peaceful world. enjoy lives. not war. mantle of peace - take leadership. be strong. begins with strong economy at home. Iran prez says our economy is weak. debt is too big. need strong military.need strong allies. connection to allies. 42 allies and france around the world. stand by principles.

What is America's Role in the world.
Romney: resp and privelege to defend freedom. make world more peaceful. elections. vote for peace. don't vote for war. recognize places of conflicts in the world. in order to lead with peace america must be strong. Get economy going. Military strong. stand by allies. israel and US tension unfortunate. Students took to street in tehrain. stand for principles. allies. strong military.
Obama: world needs strong america. ended war in iraq. refocus attention. transition process in afghanistan. refocus on alliances. alliances never been stronger. asia, europe, africa. israel. what we also do - position - rebuild america. bring manufacturing back to our shore. not rewarding companies that ship jobs overseas. cut oil imports to lowest level in 2 decades. develop clean energy. allow us to cut our exports in half by 2020. reduce deficits. cut out spending. romeny plan doesnt do it. cuts taxes for rich.
romney has proposed long and wreckless policies. praised george bush and cheney. wrong and reckless policies
romney: unemployment too high. 5 point plan. energy independent.increase  trade in latin america. training that work for workers and schools that put schools first. PUT TEACHERS UNIONS BEHIND. save and invest more. on track to balanced budget. champion small business.
Obama: in MA small biz ranked 48th. The way you define small biz it's for the RICH.
Education: reform education. gains and progress in schools.hire more teachers, especially in math in science. asked my teachers, said more teachers wouldn't help. you keep wanting to SLASH SUPPORT FOR EDUCATION.
romeny: said he did do well in education. english and math. said bipartisans put in place measures to improve.
Obama: YOU CUT EDUCATION. those results were 10 years earlier and you CUT Education. That happened before you came into office.
romney: (you said you want bigger navy, bigger military) -- cut discretionary budget -- reduce spending. cut obamacare. can't afford it. take program after program we don't need. take some programs - medicaid - take healthcare program to poor and give to states. states run more efficiently. (can you do that?) that's what I want to do.
Obama: gov romney called for 5 trillion by closing deductions. math doens't work. then spend 2 trillion dollars on military. our military spending gone up every year sicne i've been in office. we spend more than next 10 countries combined.
we can't spend 2 trillion in spending military's not asking for. 5 trillion in tax cuts. then say you are going to pay for it without saying which deductions you'd make.
you can't say you're going to do it without saying how.
(Romney looking pretty gray right now)
Romney: sayid he balances budgets. Military increase: navy smaller now than ever. unacceptable. need ships required by navy. need planes. Will NOT cut military budget plus sequestration cuts.
Obama: Budget we are discussing is NOT reducing cuts. we also have fewer horses and bayonets. we have air force carriers. don't need as many ships.
Not reflected in budget you are looking forward. It jsut doesn't work. Visited your website. Your plan doesn't work.
(Romney looking GRAY again!)

Obama; I will stand with Israel if they are attacked. Most cooperation in history.
Issue of iran - as long as I'm prez Iran will NOT have nuclear weapons.
My sanctions are crippling their economy. Their ecnomy is in a shambles due to our sanctions.
Can't afford to have nuclear arms race (like romney wants) in such a volatile region.
Sanctions work.
When Romeny talks - says in campaign, we need to take premature action - military attacks.Wrong.
Romney: no question - nuclear iran unacceptable. Obama right with sanctions. they are working. romney will tighten them he says.
Obama: get iran to recognize they need to give up nuclear program. hope leadership takes right direction. glad romney agrees with obama steps. the process is painstaking and meticulous.
(Obama is SOOOO Presidential)
Romney: says America's policies have shown weakness (what a heretic!)
says President started an apology tour. Criticizes American Policy. Says it is important for President to show strength. (How disrespectful). says we should indict
Obama: Romney - big whoppers. No apology tour. Toughest sanctions.
Romney invested in Chinese oil company doing biz with enemies. Let American people be the judge.
The strength we have shown in Iran. When I came into office, Iran was strong, now at it's weakest point.

Romney: we are 4 years closer to nuclear iran. shouldn't have wasted these last 4 years. you flew to middle east, turkey and iraq. you skipped israel.

Obama: trips - 1st trip visit our troops. went to israel as candidate. went to holocaust museum. why bond with israel unbreakable. saw where missles came down.
as president we funded iron dome program to protect children, families.
central issue - who will be credible to all parties involved. look at my record. support democracy, people, women's right - who stood on right side of history.

Bomb Iran:
Romney: not going into hypothetical - about bomb. But let's go back to what's happening in world. jihadists. trade deficits china. look around world - north korea. russia not following. don't see influence in world growing. due to economy, turmoil in israel. please repair tensions in israel.

Obama: on a whole range of issues. you've been all over the map. pleased you are finally endorsing my policies. just a few years ago said this was something you'd never do. were against sanctions, now for them. were against withdraw from iraq, now for them. was against going for bin laden. you said no, ask pakistan for permission. after we removed bin laden - talked to young girl - she was haunted by conversation from father who died in towers, now she felt relief that bin laden was killed. That's the kind of clarity in leadership.
some in my own party had the same critique you did. but I made those decision.

Romney: (you need to give me time to respond he went off track. sheiffer: you did too.)
be finished by 2014.
Pakistan important to region, world and us. Needs more stable government.

Obama:  When I came into office, still bogged down in Iraq. Ended war in Iraq. Delivered surge of troops. Met many obj that got us there in the 1st place. went there because people resp for 9/11. Now we need to transition out. Let afghanistan care for own country. Move out responsibily by 2014.
Free up resources to put America back to work. Make sure veterans get jobs, care they need. Manufacturing jobs, infrastructure jobs.

Divorce Pakistan? (Hate Us)
Romney: No. If it falls apart, there are nuclear weapons there. terrorists there. Pakistan technically an ally. Help them move to more responsible course. Can't just walk away. As we send support to them, tied to helping them become civil society.

Use of Drones?
Romney: Yes. President right in upping usage. But need comprehensive strategy to move world away from terror and extremism. Haven't seen progress we need.

Obama: Not just Bin Laden. We've created partnerships across the area. Make sure govts are not corrupt. free markets. treat women fairly. stood on side of democracy. when tunisia began to protest we stood with them. stood on side of democracy - egypt. always will be elements in these countries that don't like US. al qaeda's much weaker, less leadership.

rise of china:  greatest future threat to us.
Obama: Terrorists. China has been an adversary but also a potential parnter if they play by the rules. trade. set up trade task force to go after cheaters. reason why we brought more cases against china for trade than in both bush terms. save jobs throughout america. romney said i was too tough in tire case. took issue seriously. over long term - make sure we take care of biz at home. best education, research, technology to create great biz in US. Romney wants cuts.

Romney: greatest threat nuclear iran. china - don't want war. no protectionism. they have to manufacture goods. want economy to work. if i'm prez america will be very strong. watched as companies shut down due to china not playing by rules. we lose jobs. will label them, on day 1, label them terrorist manipulator. hacking.
(If you label them that you will start Trade War.)
No. They sell us too much for them to say war. They need to stop cheating & sa

You invested in companies that send jobs overseas.
I made a different bet. On American workers.
If we take your advice, companies invest overseas - create jobs overseas not here.
If no investment in Education/Research we will lose lead in clean energy technology.

US Exports doubled since I came into office. Currency at highest level.
Massive growth area in the future.
Can be our partner. Ships can pass through. Commerce continues. Organize trades with other countries.
China must meet basic internation standards

Auto Industry. born in Detroit. I like American Jobs. Do nothing to hurt American jobs.

Detroit - must go through bankruptcy.
(Obama: Romney you did NOT say that. Let's check the Country.)

Obama: Check the record. You keep trying to air brush history. You said you would not assist American Companies. (Romney interrupts) Check the record. You said they could get assistance from private companies and they would have gone bankrupt.

Having a tax codes that reward companies that would ship jobs overseas.
We had a decade where jobs were shipped overseas. We must go forward. (Not to bush years)

Don't want to go to policies of last 4 years. Worst economy. Jobs. Weeping. Tragedy. Last 4 years so hard. It won't help to just hire teachers. I love teachers.

President Obama:
You have a choice. We've made real progress digging out of 2 wars and worst economic crisis. Romney wants to take us back to (Bush) years. I have plan to bring back jobs. Teachers. Manufacturing. Jobs of the future. Reduce deficit. Invest in research and technology. Maintain strongest military in the world. Go after those who would do us harm. But after a decade of war, rebuild here at home and take care of veterans. Make America greatest nation on earth.

Optimistic future. Peace. Opportunity for real leadership.Make world safer. Get economy going. Two paths. President - debt - head for greece.

Me: balanced budget. back to work. 12M new jobs. Cut food stamps due to more jobs.
I know how to get along. Washington broken. Work with good dems and repubs.
Torch for world to see. Take that torch.
I'd like to be that leader.

REPUBLICAN ANGER MANAGEMENT ISSUES: Romney's Spoiled Son Tagg Threatens to "Punch Out" the President. Is only stopped because he Feared Secret Service!

Rich, Spoiled Tagg Romney said having our Black President disagree with his Dad angered him!

Tagg Romney said, “You want to rush down the debate stage and take a swing at him. But you know you can’t do that because, well first cause there is a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because it’s the nature of the process.”

Romney's War On Women is Back with "Binders Full of Women"

Binders full of women? Romney's War on Women is BACK!
Romney was asked a question about Equal Pay for Equal Work for Women. Rather than answer the question (he never answered it), INSTEAD he hopped into a Time Machine and went back to the 1950s. Romney said he supports flex time for women so they can rush home to fix daddy's dinner. Then, his time machine landed him in the Looney Bin! He said when he was governor, he couldn't find any qualified women so he sent his staff out to bring him "Binders full of Women" to help him find a qualified woman to work for him. The man was Governor of Massachusetts, the home of the most prestigious universities and businesses. He said he didn't know of ANY qualified women so he sent his staff to bring him "Binders of Women."
Who talks like that anyway? "Binders full of Women." Was this some form of Affirmative Action -- the only way to find qualified women? "Binders full of Women???"

ROMNEY: Thank you. An important topic, and one which I learned a great deal about, particularly as I was serving as governor of my state, because I had the chance to pull together a cabinet and all the applicants seemed to be men. And I went to my staff, and I said, "How come all the people for these jobs are — are all men." They said, "Well, these are the people that have the qualifications." And I said, "Well, gosh, can't we — can't we find some — some women that are also qualified? And so we — we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women's groups and said, "Can you help us find folks," and they brought us whole binders full of women."

Only today we find out this was a Lie. It was actually a Massachusetts Woman's Group that asked Romney to hire more women and Romney didn't know any. So they gave his staff this binder of resumes which Romney referred to as "Binders Full of Women!" Apparently, Romney, in all his years in Business or in government didn't know ANY qualified women.
The man is a misogynist. He wants to end Healthcare for Women (Contraceptives); demolish Planned Parenthood, Veto "Obamacare" and the Dream Policy on DAY ONE! And now he loves BINDERS FULL FOR WOMEN!! And he was extremely rude to debate moderator, Candy Crowley.
What a misogynistic character from the 50's!

It's Your Civic Duty! Vote for Somebody!


Romney regurgitated his war against Latinos. In last night's debate he said:
1. NO Amnesty: Instead put in place mandatory (though flawed) e-verify system. Mass "Voluntary" Deportation. Eliminate "Magnets" including Drivers Licenses.

2. Called Undocumented Workers "Illeegals."
3. Streamline (Reduce) Legal Immigration giving green cards only to those who graduate from college with "skills we need." (Northern European Countries)
4. Lied when he said "I didn't say Arizona Law was a model law." President Obama reminded him that he did say this and that Kris Kobach who wrote sb1070 - the racial profiling bill, is his chief Immigration advisor.

I will be LIVE BLOGGING the Presidential Debate tonight.
It starts at 9:00pm ET.
I will be looking for the discussion tonight regarding subjects Romney LIED about in the last Debate. I ask EVERYONE to LISTEN for the following Topics. Believe me, I WILL BE REPORTING THESE TOPICS LIVE TONIGHT:
1. VETO Obamacare. (barely spoke about it)
2. Significantly reduce funding for Medicaid.(barely spoke about it)

3. Cut Taxes for Rich by $5Trillion and Eliminate Tax Deductions which will impact the Middle Class and Poor. (Discussed)
From my perspective, I also want to see discussion on: . Women's rights. Will Romney admit he said he will overturn Roe v Wade? He opposed the Fair Wage act (Lilly Ledbetter)? (Discussed)
. Immigration: Will Romney admit he said he'd veto the Dream Policy on Day 1? Racial Profiling? Sheriff Arpaio? (Discussed)
. Gay Rights: Will Romney reveal his party's agenda? (Not discussed)
. The 47%, will Romney admit what he said? (Discussed)

Candy Crowley from CNN is the Moderator - introduces the structure of the debate. Excellent Job by Candy.

Romney gets first question:
. Employment: Will I get job?
ROMNEY: Pell grant program growing. Loan program going. Want you to get job. Know what it takes to make econoy grow. will change current. more jobs. more opps. will bring back economy. (Very Stiff)
Obama responds: You're future is bright Jeremy.
1. Create good paying jobs in this country. Build on 5M jobs we've created in this country. Build manufacturing jobs. Not let Detroit/jobs go bankrupt like Romney said. Create Jobs Here.
2. best education system in the world. trained for jobs of future.
3. control own energy. oil. natural gas. build energy source of the future. reduce deficit. invest in future. rebuild america. your future and america's future.

follow up question by candy: long term unemployed:
ROMNEY: I have 5 point plan. prez policies didn't put americans back to work. fewer jobs today vs when he took office. (romney doesn't count the drastic downturn from 2008 - 2009 as a result of Bush's tanking of the economy)
Romney very weirdly says Obama took Detroit bankrupt.
OBAMA:. Obama says Romney lied. Romney wanted Detroit to go bankrupt.
. Romney has 1 point plan. folks at top has 1 set of rules. Cut taxes for the rich.

Candy Keeps control and stops Romney from interupting.

Energy? Lowering gas prices not the job fo the energy dept.

 Obama: continue support energy policies. But also need to think of the future. lower oil imports. continue to open new areas for drilling. priority for natural gas. Efficient energy. reduce demand. keep gas prices lower. romney says let oil co. write oil policies. got oil and gas part but not clean energy part. doesn't think of our own economy future. Germany and CHina ARE thinking of the future. get jobs and lower price for gas
Romney: (very uncomfortable) sites production on Federal Lands. Talks about migratory birds. Says he wants to make sure of oil gas, coal, nuclear. don't need prez tostop us from coal, regulations, pipeline. good jobs back.
Obama: candy  = will you bring prices down or is this new normal. what romney said not true. opened up drilling on public lands. natural gas - encouraged and working with industry. when romney says he says in favor of coal - he shut down coal mines. not champion of coal. obama invested in coal and cleaner and smarter. same with oil and natural gas. production up. build cars more efficient. creating jobs. save money. strategy we need.
- Romney: not what you did in last 4 year. (Obama NOT TRUE - produced more jobs -  if you want to drill on public lands = production up) == Romney shaken up.
- Obama: gas prices - if energy policies working. when i took office - economy on verge of collapse. consequences of same policies gov. is promoting. with same policies BACK IN SAME MESS (Audience laughs at Romney.) Romney has no energy strategy for the future.
Romney starts pacing as questioner asks questions. Looks like a robot. Woman is taken aback. Obama says "you're doing great." (She's nervous as Romney stalks).

New Questions: which tax credits will you eliminate?
Romney: no taxes for anyone making $200K on investments. says he will reduce tax burden.
Obama: Middle class families need relief. have been hard. Cut taxes for middle class families. I did that. Cut taxes for small biz. Did that 18 times. Continue those tax cuts for middle class and small biz.
However if we are serious - make sure rich pay more. 98% save. 2% pay more. above 250K go back to tax rates of Clinton. Take us from deficits to surplus. good for nation. on 60 minutes 2 weeks. yes fair for tax increases for middle class. we need tax credits for middle class. tax cuts for rich. won't work.
Romney: top 5% tax increase. bring rates down for middle class. bring rates down for small biz. look at what happened last 4 years disappointment. 23M struggling. 3.5M more women in poverty. don't have to live like this.
energy independence. more trade. crack down on china. balanced budget. fix training programs. know why jobs grow.
Obama: won't allow top 5% have tax cuts. No it's not settled. cost of lowering rates for everyone - 20% plus eliminate corporate rate; = 5 trillion; plus continue bush tax cuts = 1 trillion plus 2M in increase for military. he doesn't tell you how he's going to do it.
He took capital gains off the table. no specifics on how to do this. just firing big bird. asks romney if someone says how are you going to cut 8T and doesn't say how you're going to do it, you wouldn't accept it.
this is only taking care of additional, doesn't even discuss current deficit.
YOU ARE GOING TO PAY FOR IT AND LOSE DEDUCTION. No one that is serious believes it.
Romney: (doesn't add up - response) - Of course they add up. I was someone who ran biz and olypics and balanced the budget. ROMNEY SPUTTERS.
New Question: Pay Equality for ALL - including Women:
Obama: Supported and signed the Lilly Ledbetter bill - fair pay for women. Talked of Mother and Grandmother. Expanded Pell Grants for all, including Women.
(SIDE NOTE: President so articulate, informing, knowledgable and strong.)
Romney: Said said he supports equal pay for women. He said when he was Gov he asked "can't we find some women also qualified?" Took EFFORT to Find qualified women (????). (what a maroon!)
(Romney still struggling)
Obama: When Romney campaign asked about whether he supported Lilly Ledbetter bill, his campaign said, "We'll get back to you." Major difference - romney comfortable having opposed employers make decision as to whether women get contraceptive as part of health care coverag; contraceptives; cancer screening. Child care credits - must be included. Not just women's issues - family and economic issues. We all participate. have 2 daughters. ALL participate.

New question: I'm undecided. Not satisfied with current economies. Blame Bush. How do you differ from Bush?
Romney: Uncomfortable -- don't believe bureaucrats in
all women access to contraceptives.
Bush and I are different people. different times. 5 point plan so different.
energy - get all we need in north america.
trade - crack down in china and latin america. more free trade agreements.
balances budget - didn't balance budget. forecast for next 4 years.
small biz - our party focused on big biz too long. all i do will add jobs for small biz, keep taxes down.
obamacare troubling: small biz says it keeps them from hiring more people.
my priority is jobs. bush had different path for diff times.

obama: 1st of all - we did come in through tough times. losing massive jobs before and as we came in. saw 31 consecutive job growth.
romeny : tax cuts is his
outsource to china. invest in companies build surveillance equip for china survillance on folks.
we are doing task force for trade. twice as many cases against unfair trade cases as previous adminstration.
china cheap tires, saved 1000 jobs. romeny opposed it.
ways romney different than bush: medicare voucher; self deportation; no comprehensive immigration; trade; romney is more extreme.

obama: what have you done - expensive. we've gone through tough 4 years. cut taxes for middle class. end war in iraq. osam bin laden. health care reform. reign in excesses of wall st. created 5M jobs. making progress. saved Detroit auto industry. many still struggling. put jobs program. savings from ending wars to rebuild America. Energy for future. Commitments made, kept. Those not able to keep, not for lack of trying.
romney made commitments: no tax pledge don't ask dime from millionaires and billionaires. he said me too. when they said cut planned parenthood - me too. repeal obamacare he said me too. not the kind of leadership you need. choice you make: who's plan is more likely.

romney: i think you know better. last 4 years not so good. if you elect him, repeat of last 4 years. by now we'd have unemployment at 5.4%. reform medicare and soc security - not done it. 1st year immigration plan - not done. not able to do what he said he'd do. didn't cut deficit. if obamacare implemented more $$. doesn't understand what it takes economy to get going. unemployment still high. food stamps: 47M on food stamps. growth of economy slower this year. hasn't let economy grow. In Reagan recession created twice as many jobs.  (longest rant)

IMMIGRATION- your plan.

Romney: welcome LEGAL immigrants. give visas to green cards to people who graduate with skills we need. stop illegal immigration. 4M people waiting.
not grant amnesty. put in place employment verify system.
won't put in place magnets: no drivers license.
Kids need pathway to become perm resident. (if college; military)
Prez didn't pass anything.

Obama: We are a nation of immigrants. a few miles away from ellis island. talent from all across the world want to come here. also a nation of laws.
we need to fix a broken immigration system. sought cooperation from congress.
1. streamline immigration system. reduce backlog.
2. more border patrol; flow lowest in 4 years
3. focus on criminals, not students or workers.
4. Dream Policy: make sure pathway to citizenship
Romney said "I will veto Dream Act." Main strategy: "Encourage Self Deportation" make life miserable. Called AZ model for nation. Racial Profiling. Check Papers. We can fix system in comprehensive way. sat down with dems and repubs including senators that previously support it. Their standard bearer says he cannot support.
Romney:1. said he did not say AZ law was model. said everify law was model. (LIE)
2. why would you file. standard bearer wasn't for it.
3. self deportation:let people make their own choice. called Latinos "Illeeegals."
not in favor of rounding up people and taking them out of country.

Obama: Said Romney denies that he said AZ sb1070 was model law though his chief Immigration advisor on his team is Kris Kobach - the author of sb1070. (I can hardly wait to hear the ANTI's on this one)

Question: Libya - Internation Security
1. beef up security
2. investigate what happened; hold cul
3. find out who did it and hunt them down. when folks mess with america, we go after them.

romney put out press release trying to make political points. not how commander in chief into a political issue.

when it comes to national security i mean what it says.
bin laden
when it comes to issue: when we are going to find out exactly what happnd. hold them accountable. these are my folks. you know i mean what i say.

thank you kerry for your question:
buck stops at his desk.
failure in not providing security resource.
feel sorry for families.
other issues - many days that passed - spontaneous or terrorist attack. took long time to find out. ask yourself why didn't we know 5 days later.
more troubling: day following assassination prez flies to las vegas for political fund raiser. these actions have symbolic significance. call in eye witnesses. says it was not demonstration. attack by terrorists. lok whats happening in syria, egypt and libya. iran.syria. (rambles on). says prez had apology tour.

obama: sec clinton done extraordinary job. she works for me. I am responsible. day after the attack. i stood in rose garden, said we would find out what happend and hunt down those that committed those crimes. there greeting caskets and grieving with families. suggestion that anyone on my team, whether sec of state un amabassador or mislead, is offensive. not what we do. not what i do as president or commander in chief.
President said it was an act of terror on 1st day. Romney said "Oh no you didn't." President said, "Yes he did. It's on Tape." Romney said, "Are you sure (acted like he was lying)." Candy Crowley Fact Check said "YES HE DID. It's On Tape!" (ROMNEY LOOKed LIKE A FOOL!

NEXT QUESTION: During prez national convention: ak47 out of hands of criminals -- limit availability of assault weapons. believe in 2nd ammendment. too many instances.
OBAMA: Believe in 2nd ammendment however KEEPS GUNS OUT OF the hands of criminals and mentally ill. and stop assault weapons. Need comprehensive strategy.
ROMNEY: not in favor in new legislation on guns. don't want automatic weapons. enforce gun laws we have. change culture of violence we have. Greatest failure fast and furious. (GOV GOES OFF TRACK -- CANDY BRINGS HIM ON TRACK)
Romney flusters. Said his Massachussets Ban wasn't really a Ban.
OBAMA: Romney for ban before he was against it. Changed his mind due to his allegiance to National Rifle association. We should focus on Education to resolve these types of issues. Math, Science, Community College, Retrain workers; train for jobs.

ROMNEY: Lost jobs to China. Manufacturing jobs lost to China. Made it less attractive to have jobs in America. Make it more attractive for entrepenuers to invest and grow in america. Make sure other countries and China follow the rules; in jobs; in currency; Punish China. More tariffs. Reduce Tax Rates here in America. Stop/reduce regulations. rambles on and on. Keep China playing by rules.

OBAMA: We need to create jobs here. Lower corporate tax rates. too high. Close loop holes that allow companies to deduct tax loop holes when they outsource. romney supports these tax loop holes.
Keep jobs here. Less outsourcing. We are on pace to double exports. creates jobs across country.
Romney invested in companies that outsourced; supported outsourcing.

Candy: ipad; technology manufacturing - how to bring it back to US.
Romney: china cheating. steal technology. play on fair basis. 2. make america attractive place.
Obama: some jobs won't come back - low wage, low skill. I want high wage, high skill. we want best science best research. we don't need tax cuts that cuts educations, training, high skills.

LAST QUESTION: what do you believe is biggest misperception about man and candidate?
ROMNEY: characterize me as someone who doesn't care about 100% of people. spent life in private sector. care about people. believe in God. care for one another. Olympics. Schools. can get country on track. don't hav to settle for high gas. high food. food stamps. college students out of work. reform medicare and social security. i've done these things.

OBAMA: i believe the free enterprise system is the best world has known. risk takers rewarded. everyone gets fair shot. equality for all. world's greatest middle class. romney good man, loves family and faith. But when Romney said 47% of country believe themselves as victims. folks on social security. veterans. students. soldiers. I want to fight for them. the middle class. when they succeed we all succeed. GI Bill was not a handout.

President smiles. shakes hands with audience. hugs Michelle. Mixes with audience. Everyone is hugging, talking to President and  Michelle. It's amazing. Young people, men, women, white, black, brown all hoving around the President and Michelle.
Romney looks like a robot. Looks stunned. Romney is talking to some Old White Guy. Romney talking to another OLD WHITE GUY.

President was AMAZING!!

Mitt Romney Cancels His Commitment to Appear on the View! The Big Chicken is AFRAID of Whoopi!

Barbara Walters announced on Monday's "View" that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney canceled his commitment to appear on the ABC daytime talk show. Mitt is JUST TOO SCARED! Romney had earlier announced he would visit the program in October after his "47%" video during a fundraising event was released through a secretly recorded video. This weekend Romney called the ABC talk show and cancelled! He claimed he had some schedule conflices, though we ALL know the Big Chicken is just afraid of Whoopi.

Remembering Your Grandparents, Mothers and Fathers, the Blood, Sweat and Tears that Brought Us to Today!

Sometimes I wish we had the technology of today back when my father was growing up. Then we could record, and put on youtube, all of the struggles that they encountered.
My Dad was born in 1914. He was only 15 years old at the start of the Great Depression. He was at the top of his class when his Father came to school and pulled him out. "Times are hard. You have to put away these childish things and go to work to help support our family through these hard times."
There were no video games back then, only hard, back-breaking work for a young 15 year old. He worked in the fields from dawn to dusk, alongside his father, uncles and younger brothers. They travelled across the country finding any available jobs, all to send home money so the family could survive. As the Great Depression became worse, my father found a job working as a trucker/recruiter for the State of Michigan. He found jobs for many working families, picking fruits, vegetables and travelling from harvest to harvest to help provide food for all Americans. My father served as one of the foreman. Yet, my father never held against the owners that he was not allowed to eat or go to the same restrooms as other non-Latino supervisors. This type of discrimination happened all across America. All minorities just had to live with it.
Later, my Dad found a job in the Auto Industry and helped others find jobs too.
My Dad LOVED the Unions. The Unions promoted fairness and safety for all and helped increase wages from pennies to dollars, with healthcare benefits, while providing safety in the workplace.
My Dad believed in Equality for every person, regardless of race, color or creed. He helped so many other families find jobs and even offered them a place to stay, in our own home, until they could stand on their own.
My Dad was a good Christian and petitioned our Catholic Church to have Masses in Spanish.
My Mom and Dad had 10 children - 5 girls and 5 boys. He instilled in each of us a need  to complete our Education. He insisted that Education was the Great Equalizer. We must do well in school and complete our Education. We must speak English impeccably -- because he knew of the discrimination provided to those with an accent, but he also insisted that we must ALSO remember Spanish and our heritage -- where we came from.
Growing up, my father -- who worked at the factory from 6am - 3pm, then worked as a painter from 4pm until 9 pm, then had a 3rd job on Saturdays - hauling sawdust for the Factory, and also found time to help the church (as a painter) and help the priests as a handyman. My Mom cooked for the Priests. ALL to serve as payment for our Tuition at Catholic School (a premiere education.)
As for me: My father insisted that every summer, we work in the fruit fields, picking Cherries and Strawberries. Even though he earned a good wage at all of his jobs, he insisted we work. Why? To instill in each of his children a good work ethic.
He said to each of us: "Work Hard! Never be Lazy! Never take a Hand-out. Stand on your own. Learn to be self reliant." We learned. Every summer, we worked from dawn to dusk, harvesting crops. My mom kept us on quotas. The more you picked, the bigger the allowance. I was so happy to receive my allowance for my hard work each week.
Yet, there was so much discrimination back in the fifties and sixties. We "Mexicans" were not allowed to swim in the same areas as the Locals. The church reserved Mass Times "Just for the Mexicans" at 11:00 every Sunday. The other Masses were not for us.
We were housed in garages and barns with outhouses and showers segregated from the staff. But that's how it was in those times. We just had to live with in.

However, in the early sixties, everything changed. President John Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta said TIMES WERE A CHANGING! They said we must Stand Up and Protest. We ARE ALL EQUAL!
I believed them.
In the late sixties, my girlfriends and I joined other protesters and fought for equality for all. We Protested. We Stood Strong. We carried signs. We demanded Equality for All!
I remember nights where the police, in full regalia, including night-sticks, were patrolling down the sidewalks in front of the apartments I lived in, all trying to silence the protesters from protesting for equal rights. However, WE WEREN'T AFRAID! We stood up. We protested. We held out for Equal Rights.

Today, I do see the Fruits of our Labor, Trials and Tribulations.
Especially for our Young People, I do see more equality. I do see less discrimination.
The abusers are much to smart to be blatant or obvious. There still is Discrimination and Racism, but not nearly as blatant nor to the level of Past Racism. It certainly isn't the racism my Father experienced where he was denied the use of Bathrooms and Eating Places.
It certainly isn't to the level that I experienced, only segregating us from swim places, movie theatres and Masses but still very much alive.

Today, it's much more subtle. You only see it in whispers, political t-shirts, websites and signs, only whispered under the abuser's breath.

Sometimes, I think the worst offense is in our children themselves. Our children FORGET the accomplishments of our ancestors (My Dad, their Aunts and Uncles) of the Past.
They forget that the sins, the racism of our past, is so easy to reproduce.
They forget ALL OF THE HARD WORK it took to get us to Today.
They forget to HONOR the sacrifices of my Dad & Mom and of their own Aunts and Uncles to get them to where they are today.

All I can say to our children is:
Please stop and think of ALL of the Sacrifices of your Ancestors before you.

Think of the sacrifices your Grandmother, your Grandfather, your Mother and Father, your Aunts and your Uncles were forced to undergo JUST TO GET YOU TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY!

Remember, this country was formed on the premise that WE ALL are Created Equal, regardless of Race, Color or Creed. Our country was Founded on the Social Compact that we would NOT allow our Seniors to be thrown Out into the Cold and Forgotten.

Be thankful and rejoice in YOUR FAMILY and YOUR ANCESTORS.
Without their struggles and hard work, you would STILL BE IN CHAINS.


WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN NEXT 2 DEBATES: On Day ONE -- Romney Obliterating Health Care and Tax Deductions for the Middle Class and Poor!

During the debates, both Romney and Ryan said they will make changes ON DAY ONE that will significantly impact the Middle Class, the Elderly and the Poor.
1. VETO Obamacare.
2. Significantly reduce funding for Medicaid.
3. Cut Taxes for Rich by $5Trillion and Eliminate Tax Deductions which will impact the Middle Class and Poor:

1. VETO OBAMACARE: What most Americans don't realize is that many provisions within the Affordable Healthcare Act (ie: "Obamacare") have been in place since 2009 and Romney's VETO of "Obamacare" will ELIMINATE these provisions ON DAY ONE.
a. Pre-Existing Conditions Coverage Protection: --
(Watch for this during the debates)
THIS IS THE BIGGEST FACTOR that Healthcare Providers and Business Owners want to Eliminate. Romney LIED during the 1st debate saying his Plan would cover pre-existing conditions "just like Obamacare." This is a LIE and after the debate, Eric Fehrstrom, Romney's Top Aide, told CNN that Romney's plan would ONLY cover pre-existing conditions "for those who already have insurance." This means that millions of Americans today who are guaranteed with Pre-existing Condition Protection will LOSE IT as soon as Romney Vetos "Obamacare." The Romney/Ryan plan is to END THIS PROTECTION and hand-off the implementation of a privatized Healthcare system to States. States may determine whatever they want, no guarantees for anyone.This means that those with pre-existing conditions which is over 75% of seniors, will be forced to find a carrier that will provide them coverage and if Ryan's voucher system replaces Medicare, Seniors will only have a measly voucher to pay for their coverage. This is perhaps the most SHOCKING aspect to the Romney/Ryan plan.
b. Coverage for children 23 - 26: This has been in place since 2009 and it will be gone on day one of the Veto. Back in 2009, I remember my old employer griping and complaining about having to cover the 23 - 26 year olds. I can just imagine how quickly these employers will give these young folks (primarily college students) the Boot - as soon as Romney signs the Veto!
c. Closing the Donut Hole for Seniors on Medicare: Most Americans are unfamiliar with the donut hole. Seniors with medical conditions are very familiar with it. Prior to "Obamacare" seniors who required costly medications were forced to pay "out of pocket" for their prescription costs between  (approx) $2000 - $5000 (the Donut Hole). Starting in 2009, "Obamacare" started closing this hole by paying between 10 - 50% of these costs -- with plans to close the hole by 2020.
Remember, OVER 50% of seniors rely solely on Social Security and Medicare. Can you imagine how costly this was for them to pay for their prescriptions while in the Donut Hole? Many of them are forced to decide whether to take their medications or to eat. Most seniors view this coverage as a Godsend. Now, with the VETO, Romney/Ryan will take this coverage away!
d. Preventable Healthcare Coverage: Since 2009, Obamacare pays for needed/required preventative coverage including Colonoscopies and Mammograms. (So you thought this was covered by your insurance company out of the goodness of your heart??) Nope. That's Obamacare and that goes away on Day ONE of Romney signing the Veto.

2. REDUCE FUNDING FOR MEDICAID: On Day One, Romney/Ryan plan to cut Medicaid by $750 BILLION. This means that MILLIONS of Seniors will lose their Medicaid coverage. These Seniors are the Most Vulnerable! These are the sick, disabled elderly, many in Nursing Homes.
(click on picture for larger view)

3. Cut Taxes for Rich by 20 percent ($5Trillion) without causing the US Govt revenue. He can only do this if he Eliminates Tax Deductions that impact the Middle Class and Poor:

a. Mortgage Income Tax Deduction: This is the favorite deduction of the middle class. This deduction benefits all home owners -- primarily the Middle Class. These are deductions to buy, build or improve your home.
b. Family Tax Credit: This is the favorite deduction for Working Families -- most are Middle or Lower income families.
If Romney/Ryan are elected, the elimination of these Tax Deductions will IMMEDIATELY and DIRECTLY Impact ALL Middle and Lower Income Americans.
