The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

President's broken promise(bad):
No. 234: Allow five days of public comment before signing bills

To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama "will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days."

Allow All Veterans Back into the VA: Reverse the 2003 ban on enrolling modest-income veterans, which has denied care to a million veterans.

Hate crime(bad):
Expand Hate Crimes Statutes: President Obama and Vice President Biden will strengthen federal hate crimes legislation, expand hate crimes protection by passing the Matthew Shepard Act, and reinvigorate enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section

Improve Information Sharing and Analysis: Improve our intelligence system by creating a senior position to coordinate domestic intelligence gathering, establishing a grant program to support thousands more state and local level intelligence analysts, and increasing our capacity to share intelligence across all levels of government.

Wake Up

When are the American people going to Wake Up?? (6) years of Bush & the Republican Congress did everything they could to hurt the middle class & the American people just kept on re-electing them!! If you are one of the voters who keep on re-electing the same old sorry politicians then you have no right to complain.

The USA is heading towards becoming a third-world country, quickly. Have lost millions of good paying American jobs but are allowing millions from other countries to replace them thru all the various VISA programs.

What a shame that this great country is being sold down the drain!!

Bush & Congress had approval ratings of less than 30% & Congress still does. But they could care less about that or about YOU.
