This election is first and foremost about the economy. Based on this, I cannot vote for Barack Obama for the following reasons:

1. We are now over $16 trillion in debt. This is inexcusable and there is no sign that the president is willing to curb his spending. Obamacare will not only increase the deficit but will also increase taxes which will hit the middle class. Candidate Obama stated that if he couldn’t cut the deficit in half during his first term he would not deserve reelection. So be it.

2. Our true jobless rate is higher than the 7.8 percent that was recently released. There are millions of Americans out of work, under employed or who have given up on finding jobs. Our president has never held a private sector job and does not know how to encourage private sector jobs.

3. For the first time in our history, the credit rating of the United States has been degraded twice during this administration. We went from AAA to AA and now we are at AA-. If we cannot control our spending we could get downgraded again.

4. There has not been a federal budget during Obama’s presidency. The Democrats controlled the White House, Congress and the Senate during Obama’s first two years. If Obama could not get a budget passed then, he clearly does not deserve another term.

5. Family incomes have dropped eight percent since Obama took office. Healthcare costs have increased even though Obama promised if his Affordable Care Act passed, healthcare premiums would fall.

6. Gas prices have increased 100 percent.

7. Entitlements continue to increase — over 46 million people are now getting food stamps. Medicare recipients have increased significantly. We need jobs.

8. Obama has stifled our gas, coal and oil production. Rather than encouraging domestic production, Obama is sending money to other countries to help them develop their energy resources. This is not only bad business — we should be in competition with these countries — it continues our dependence on foreign energy supplies. We need the jobs these industries would provide.

9. Obama has shipped jobs and stimulus money to other countries. Obamas jobs czar, Jeffrey Immelt, shipped thousands of jobs to China even though his company GE received stimulus dollars. And who can forget Solyndra and all the green energy jobs that took stimulus money then either folded or moved to another country?

10. Obama is working for the unions, not the workers. Had GM filed bankruptcy and restructured, they could have saved jobs while we could have avoided the debt this caused our government. What happened to the GM stock the government purchased? It was given to the unions.

These reasons are all economic but there are more regarding foreign policy and “leading from behind,” tax codes,“Fast & Furious,” and our standing as a world leader.

While I am also not an Obama supporter I must point out that Medicare is coverage issued to individuals on social security retirement benefits or disability, these people paid into the system, it is not the same as food stamps or medicaid. As people continue to age, the medicare roles will increase no matter who is the president

Why not? Sherrod Brown does it all of the time and doesn't work for it. All of the congressmen vote to increase their wages. Well, IF I were on city council I would vote to increase the policemen's salaries. They put their lives on the line every day and night, even if it is not their shift to work.

The field is open. Perhaps you should run for council. However, you will find that it's a lot different from the outside looking in that it is from the inside looking out. The councilperson's letter was needed to set the record straight. The only thing that suprises me is that the EXAMINER printed it!

That's funny coming from someone who benefits from tax $$$, who pays her insurance? Entitlements? Ask her and Mr. Personality if they want SSI, they live pretty good off our taxes as it is. She's typical of the kind of dolt you find around here.

This coming from a "Legislator" who votes to raise her kids salarys that the tax payer provides, who railed against the Stimulis but had her hand out for the checks they were writing, but she's not the only one, i see one of the other councilmen got it approved to get new sidewalks, curbs and a new street put down in neighbor hood.. all small town politics must be corrupt...
