Why did anyONE vote for Obama? 62 million people voted for Obama.<quoted text> If you voted for Obama, tell me why? Tell us all why anyone would vote for Obama when he said it would cut the debt in half and then it was increased 4 tril in 4 years. Tell my why under his watch Congress did not do a budget when they were trillions of dollars in debt? What problem does the United States have that supercedes the debt? I'm not running for Congress but i do know if 6 is taken in and 9 is spent on a consistent basis then that is a recipe for diaster. They are ignoring the problem, they are not doing their jobs.
Each had their own reasons, but for me it was choice between fiscal and regulatory policies. Supply-side economics and deregulation have had a fair run to produce results, and the result was deficit, decline of the middle-class, jobs out-sourced at an ever-increasing clip, and global economic catastrophe.
Any idea has the right to be given a chance. Supply-side has had over ten unfettered years now to produce. It has been a dismal failure for all but the top percentile. They got a shot, it didn't work. For me, it was a decision to say No Thanks to that, and give these new ideas the same chance. Given what he inherited in Jan '09, and the unembarrassed obstructionism of the opposition, I think he's done pretty well so far. Apparently about 62 million Americans agree.
