President Obama Accomplishments

Barack ObamaPresident Barack Obama has accomplished much to help Middle Class working families since elected President. More importantly, Barack Obama prevented the complete collapse of American financial and economic institutions shortly after beginning his term.

President Obama was left with the worse financial and economic conditions since the Great Depression. Over 750,000 jobs were being lost each month when Mr. Obama was elected. Over 4 million new jobs have been created since he took office.

Unfortunately, many Americans are still struggling as the recession slowly recovers. Sadly, the obstructionists Republican Congress voted down a bill that would have created over 1 million new jobs.

Also this week, the Congress voted against the Affordable Care Act for the 33rd time. They have failed to vote for one bill to create one new jobs yet they continue to waste time voting against health care for all Americans. Recently the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act is constitutional; even though Republicans have falsely claimed it was unconstitutional since the day it became law.

President Barack Obama continues to fight for all Americans while the Republican obstructionists fight valiantly for the rich and big corporations.
