HOW CAROL? By screwing those already screwed, by taking from those who need the most. By taking from the elderly woman who cannot work, who is living on social security trying to support two adult handicapped children alone. How do you propose she continue to support these individuals if Romney cuts the small amount of assistance she gets? How can she afford medication for herself as well as for these two adults with his proposed cuts? I don't see his campaign bus visiting her trailer to visit with her.
He proposes cutting but offers no solutions to those affected by those cuts; but, he will increase spending to the military that he's going to withdraw from the Middle East. Makes a great deal of sense, or does it.
The Romney/Ryan Medicare reform won't even kick in until another 15 years down the road. Plenty of time for those under 50 to start looking ahead.

Even then, they will have a choice. If they're well off by the time they retire, they can choose a private insurer for better coverage. If they aren't so well off, they can still get on the government plan with just not the same good coverage.

Seniors and those on the threshold of retirement will not be affected in the least.

Obama, on the other hand, has already taken over $700 million dollars from Medicare to fund Obamacare. A lot of present day seniors could be affected by that decision.

What is Obama's plan for Medicare down the road when those under 50 expect it to still be there and it's bankrupt?

Here read this link and use so common sense and see that if Romney were President, I would not be working a a whole lot of other people wouldn't either. But the rich would be getting their $300,000 cut it taxes. I guess when we are starving they should get that money. That it the biggest thing that Romney wants to do.

While Obama supporters were standing in line to go to an Obama rally, held at George Mason University in Virginia, they were asked who they go to to get their news. The top three news people cited were Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart and Bill Maher. A number of them stated that they do NOT turn to Fox News.

The main reasons these Obama supporters listed these three individuals is because they believe they are honest and tell all of the facts. They believe that a flaming lesbian gay rights activist and two stand-up comedians are trustworthy, honest and tell the whole story.
Really?


So when I heard the Obama supporters in the interview say that they relied on these three for fair and accurate reporting, that only confirmed my views that most Obama supporters have never heard the truth and probably wouldn’t believe it if they did hear it. That also explains why they have no clue how Obama’s policies are driving the nation to financial collapse.

Come on Carol, who is the delusional one, Negative growth in Europe almost every country broke and you expect the USA to stand out with China who stimulate everything including their mother with Government money. Seeing Mitt stands for stimulate "nothing" how delusional is it to think that increasing military spending and cutting taxes will fix the debt. That shows your logic is bordering on insanity! A bit like trying to build a Casino for high rollers in the middle of ghetto.
I see Mitt Romney as a decisive leader who knows how to get things done, who is no stranger to the global economy and who understands how foreign and domestic businesses run more efficiently.

I see Mitt Romney as a doer and not a dreamer who will get this economy back on track, put the federal government back in its place and will give more power back to the states to manage their own affairs more efficiently.

I see Mitt Romney as a problem solver and the right man at the right time for the right job.

So what is so great about the status quo again?

Important stuff / reforms, your leaving it to Romney?

eX- Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts?

Romney as Governor of Massachusetts, had a approval rating of 34% thats from the people who ran him out of town / or the state.

News flash 34% is not good.

That actually a lot of disapproval from people who know him better than you.

The state of MA that Romney was Governor of isn't voting for Romney for president, he is losing BIG

Romneys disapproval in Massachusetts, see it here

The last two republican presidents was named, George H W Bush and George W Bush. Both of these republican presidents ended their presidency with a recession, which we are still trying to get out of. Republican mitT roMney offers the very same.

Now go vote - Obama

Let's get in touch with reality.
China stimulates what it stimulates with our money.
They have enough of our money to do that and also loan our own money back to us, then we pay interest on our own money we send to them.
Being China is like owning a candy store in a neighborhood where the biggest idiot there is the richest kid in the world.

The President did and he did it the right way. Not like you and the neo-cons want him to, they are so eager to go to war. Listen to Colin Powell. He knows alot more about what is going on with things like this than fox news.

Giving $300,000 to the rich doesn't creat jobs. If President Obama was elected and not Bush he would have had a surplus to work with
