Re: “For Obama

Think about why Romney won't release his tax forms. We'd see all the tricks he plays . . . possible dishonesty. I just don't think he can be trusted. His loyalties aren't with the "common" people. He wants us to be his serfs.

Re: “For Obama

I'm not angry about being middle class; just trying to stay so. Have nothing against being wealthy, but think the playing field should be level - they should pay same tax rate as the rest of us. Do you realize all the subsidies and breaks they also get? Think about all the money Romney has in foreign accounts - it's sitting there making more money. How many millions/billions does one need to be happy?

Re: “For Obama

There is no such thing as "free enterprise"; everything has to be paid for. Rj Ryan, do you pay for any prescriptions? Have you had any hospital stays? Do you think prices are fair? Ever been intimidated on the job? Lost health coverage or had to pay a large percentage of your pay for it? Lost retirement benefits? Lost a home? Lost a job because the boss could hire someone younger or cheaper, or shipped the job out of the country?

Romney's old company, Bain, is currently in the process of shipping 170 Illinois jobs to China. Romney has about a 51% personal interest, so he is going to profit. The company, Sensata, made current employees train Chinese workers who are taking their jobs! They have reached out to Romney without success.

This is how much he cares about good American jobs. He invented this process. Do you really believe what he says? It changes every day! By the way - the 12 million jobs he says he will create (poof! magically = jobs, ) is the number of jobs that have previously been predicted for the next year. How convenient.

Busineses need regulations, otherwise they run roughshod over everyone and tend to remain static (such as relying on dirty energy which sends carbon into the atmosphere and is poisoning our planet).

There's no such thing as "free enterprise!

Re: “For Obama

Presidents who were businessmen: Herbert Hoover, both Bushes, ruined economies. Romney and Republicans/Tea Partiers don't care about "accountability". Look what they are doing with women's rights (birth control, right to choose, equal pay). They don't respect middle and lower class - they use the excuse that we are lazy and would rather accept handouts.

Romney's economic policies are G. W. Bush's policies on steroids. He will crash the economy even worse because he will have NO regulations for banks/big business; we all know how out-of-control they were leading up to the crash. Yet they walked away with millions and continued making record profits while the rest of us have suffered.

The Republicans in congress have worked during Obama's term to make him look bad. They made sure that his jobs bill, which would have meant at least million more jobs and started work on repairing our nation's infrastructure, didn't come up for a vote. Tell me how they were doing what was best for anyone but the wealthy! They really don't care about about common people!
