  • Obama/ Biden Entitlements: •Entitlement programs- Food stamp president. 31.9 million to 46 million. It went to double when he left office. More people were in poverty. •Disability president: Social Disability greatly increased. Obama Made it easier to get disability. * Under Obama wealthy took home more money than the poor. Top 1% made more money. Median income declined for 6 years straight. •3 years in a row at 14% for unemployment. •Record Stimulus spending that did not stimulate. Just new debt because money is taken from tax payers or borrowed. * Unemployment stayed about 8% for 48 months. * 1st time in 38 years that companies went under more than companies started. Obamacare and government regulations crushed businesses. * He also predominately created low wage jobs. * He was not the first president to inherent a presidency after a recession: Reagan after carter, Bush after Clinton. On average it took 22 months to return the economy to before levels. It Obama’s took a little more than 70 months.

  • War on Oil While Obama lavished taxpayer money on “green energy,” he was an enemy of the American oil industry. When Obama took office, the national average gas price was under $2.00 per gallon. Obama set about “correcting” this as soon as he could. Using the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as a pretext, President Obama issued a moratorium on offshore oil drilling to ensure safety through a view of extraction procedures. But Obama’s 2010 budget proposal, submitted to Congress two months before the BP oil spill, indicated that government revenues from offshore oil drilling would drop from $1.5 billion in 2009 to $413 million in 2015. Obama envisioned big restrictions on offshore drilling; he just needed an environmental disaster to use as political cover After the moratorium, already rising gas prices spiked to nearly $4.00 a gallon. The national average gas price would stay above $3.00 per gallon for a record 1,410 days, which stymied the struggling economic recovery. Obama also opposed the Keystone XL pipeline, which would deliver 700,000 barrels a day of crude oil from Canada to coastal Texas oil refineries and create an estimated 20,000 jobs. Obama delayed making a final decision until after the 2014 midterm elections. After Republicans won control of the Senate, Obama threatened to veto any bill approving construction of the pipeline. Later, he made good on that threat, stating: Because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest -- including our security, safety, and environment -- it has earned my veto.Never mind a State Department environmental impact study on the proposed pipeline that concluded the pipeline would have a minimal impact on greenhouse gas emissions and posed little threat to the surrounding ecosystem.Obama’s war on oil didn’t stop there. He did as much as possible to slow down, if not stop, oil production in the United States. His administration cut back the amount of federal land available for shale oil production and blocked oil exploration in Alaska, a potential source of about twenty-seven billion barrels of oil and thousands of jobs.Federal drilling permits were delayed. It’s no surprise that, on Obama’s watch, oil and natural gas production on federal land dropped 6 percent and 28 percent. Oil and natural gas production on private and state land, however, increased by 61 percent and 33 percent respectively thanks to innovations that made previously inaccessible oil and natural gas available to extract at low cost. But Obama tried his best to interfere in private sector efforts, too. In 2011, he proposed more than $60 billion in tax and fee increases on American energy production.A year later, Obama proposed exempting oil and gas companies from eligibility to receive a tax credit that encourages domestic manufacturing.Thanks to the boom in private oil and natural gas production, Americans got much-needed relief at the gas pump in 2014. According to AAA, the plunge in gas prices saved American drivers more than $500 million per day. It’s a good thing Obama’s war on oil failed; otherwise, the slim economic recovery we managed may never have happened at all.

  • Appointed radical Justices to the courts: After the retirement of Justice David Souter in 2009, Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to replace him. Controversy soon arose when Americans heard her past comments on gender and nationality in the judiciary. Sotomayor said, several times over the years, that she hoped that “a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”85 Her past writings and associations also raised questions about her attitude towards race and equal justice under the law. As a college student, Sotomayor described herself as a Puerto Rican nationalist and had clearly negative attitudes toward the United States.86 Obama’s own Department of Homeland Security classified Puerto Rican nationalists as potential domestic terrorists.

  • Releasing Criminal Illegal Aliens Obama is not alone in his support of amnesty for illegal immigrants. But releasing convicted violent criminals who entered the United States illegally is not in the best interest of American citizens-this should not be a controversial position. Yet Obama, in his quest for amnesty, did just that. The Center for Immigration Studies reported that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released over 36,000 convicted criminal aliens awaiting deportation proceedings. Many were guilty of serious crimes, including 193 homicides, 426 sexual assaults, 303 kidnappings, 1,075 aggravated assaults, and an astounding 15,635 DUIs. Other convicts released committed robberies, arsons, assaults, sex offenses, larceny, and burglary.75 Besides the 36,000 awaiting deportation proceedings, the Obama administration also caught and released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013 who weren’t put into deportation proceedings. According to Jessica M. Vaughn, the Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, the policies of the Obama administration “frequently have allowed political considerations to trump public safety factors and, as a result, aliens with serious criminal convictions were allowed to return to the streets instead of being removed to their home countries.” Obama argued that changing our immigration policy was “the right thing to do for our economy, our security, and our future.” Only in the Obama administration could releasing tens of thousands of convicted criminals back into the U.S. population just because they are illegal aliens be considered “the right thing to do” for our security.

  • The fact that there were some who would admit to not voting for things that would be good for us as a nation ----- BECAUSE ----- you would get crucified by your own party for doing so!!!!! ------ Then they were not serving the USA but raising their political party and "their" beliefs above the welfare of the nation and that they as individuals were too cowardice to buck the wishes of their leaders! That's called a cult!

Remember this man obama was elected at his first term, because he was "black" and cheated using the same cheating voter machine. "You will see." Table is turning even those they're telling you it's not and wanting Trump to concede. Did you know obama's second term he lost 3.5 million votes compared to his 2008 win. Trump gained 11 million votes in 2020!! America is at war from within! If you actually take the time to look at obama's track record, he hasn't done much for America and spent too much time in china, and middle east building up relationship to sellout our country to bring china as world power then change our regime to UNITED STATES OF CHINA COMMUNiSM!! There are soo much, you don't know. Remember Trump asking joe "who built the cage, joe?" Many of you may think that Trump built the cage but that is false. Why? Because the cage was built in 2014! Who was the president and vp at the time? obama & biden. When did Trump elected? 2016!! That is just one TRUTH!
