It is simply illogical. President Obama asking the American people to vote for four more years of economic failure and bad policy just doesn’t make sense.
We’ve endured three straight years of an unemployment rate above 8 percent. Gasoline was $1.68 a gallon four years ago. Today, it is more than $4 a gallon. Today, 52 million are on food stamps under President Obama, a 45 percent increase. Some $716 billion has been taken from Medicare to support the Medicaid part of Obamacare, creating higher costs and less available care for seniors.
With no Canadian pipeline, thousands of potential jobs are lost, and the oil will go to China. Billions of dollars were given to Brazil so they can drill for oil. Why not here in our own country? We are assuming debt at $3 million a minute; $2.5 trillion is spent in entitlements; 49 percent of households are on some kind of government assistance, and $4 billion is added to our debt each day. Our debt is now at $16 trillion.
Four more years of the same simply means four more years of economic failure, ballooning national debt and lost opportunity. If we hope to return our contry to prosperity and sensible government policy, logic must prevail as the American public goes to the polls this November.
