The accomplishment of post 1 would take a Republican in the executive office working with a Republican control of both Houses of Congress. Do you think America is up to it? To me It seems a matter of socialist and socialist sympathising voters outnumbering the American Constitutional voters to reelect the socialist president. You must admit there are a whole lot of mullygrubbers in this nation who would gladly vote with the socialists. I early voted R/R.

It's easy to use President Obama as a scape goat but those of us that remember the truth, all of it will vote for Obama. Here's some facts for those with a short memory.

BILLS REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS HAVE BLOCKED:
* Republicans held the Unemployment Extension bill hostage for 8 weeks until Obama extended tax breaks for the wealthy.(People forgot how the Republicans held the US hostage during the Debt Deliberations because they wanted and still want to gut Medicare and Social Security.)

*Oil Spill Liability- Raises the liability on what companies can be made to pay to clean up after an oil spill. Republicans blocked this.

*Political Ad disclosure bill- Would have required all donors to political campaigns to reveal themselves. Republicans blocked this, not once but twice.

*Tax on Companies that ship jobs overseas- A bill that would have eliminated a tax break that companies get when they ship jobs overseas.(Republicans blocked this, allowing companies to keep the tax break they receive when they ship jobs to other countries.)

*Health Care for the 9/11 First Responders who got sick from being at Ground Zero- Would have provide health care to help the 9/11 First Responders who were at Ground Zero on 9/11 and are now sick because of it.)

* Health Care- Prevents insurance companies from discriminating against you on the basis of "pre-existing conditions". Requires that insurance companies spend 85 cents of every dollar that you pay on your actual health care. Limits health insurance companies profit margins.(Republicans blocked this for months before it finally passed.) Romney will repeal it.

*Wall Street Reform- Puts stricter regulations on the banks, preventing them from becoming “too big to fail”. Curbs reckless spending practices that caused the banking crisis. Republicans attempted to block this.

*Fiscal year 2011 increase in military basic pay.

*Senator Franken’s Anti-Rape Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill - Makes it so that women raped overseas while working for foreign contractors have the right to have their case heard in an American court instead of having their case mediated by the company they work for.(Only Republican men voted against this, but it passed.)

People who blame Obama alone for the political sabotage and economic treason of outsourcing American jobs by wealthy corporations, are now paying BILLIONS (NOT TO CREATE JOBS OR BUILD ROADS) but toward putting a corporate sponsored puppet in the White House to deregulate and outsource, opening the door to finish the manufacturing exodus the Bush administration began.
