For all who LIKE Obama,outside of Obama Care and Bin Laden, give me FIVE things that Obama has done to make it better for all Americans during his term. What positive things has he done?

No put downs or bashing towards others. That means everyone in the peanut gallery tick your locks lol

If anyone is curious for an explanation, ask nicely.

Here are five per your request (the list is larger but you only asked for five)
Note: They may not necessarily be the "top 5"

1) Eliminated Catch-22 in Pay Equality Laws: Signed Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, giving women who are paid less than men for the same work the right to sue their employers after they find out about the discrimination, even if that discrimination happened years ago. Under previous law, as interpreted by the Supreme Court in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the statute of limitations on such suits ran out 180 days after the alleged discrimination occurred, even if the victims never knew about it.

2) Passed Credit Card Reforms: Signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure Act (2009), which prohibits credit card companies from raising rates without advance notification, mandates a grace period on interest rate increases, and strictly limits overdraft and other fees.

3) Achieved New START Treaty: Signed with Russia (2010) and won ratification in Congress (2011) of treaty that limits each country to 1,550 strategic warheads (down from 2,200) and 700 launchers (down from more than 1,400), and reestablished and strengthened a monitoring and transparency program that had lapsed in 2009, through which each country can monitor the other.

4)Expanded Hate Crimes Protections: Signed Hate Crimes Prevention Act (2009), which expands existing hate crime protections to include crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation, gender, or disability, in addition to race, color, religion, or national origin.

5) Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

Escalating gas prices that he used to blame on Bush when he was in office and now he blames it on Congress. And of course Obama care that is bankrupting most states and thats why theyre fighting it in Supreme court.

the question was for All americans not just women and Minorities. There's a reason women don't make the money men do is simply cause they are not as good of workers than us men, that's why there's mens leagues and womens leagues. If u think women can work as well as you than you have an inability cause I know no women can out do me at anything.
