San Francisco (Obama.net)- As earlier noted, President Barack Obama and other members of his administration have set out to campaign for their fellow Democrats that are up for reelection on the November 2nd Midterm Elections. With Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden, and others traveling the United States of America, Monday saw the President of the United States come to Atlanta, Georgia.
Obama used the fundraiser to express his thoughts on the proposed policies of the Republican Party. After a year and a half of struggling to find bipartisan support and having numerous measures attempt to be blocked and compromised, Obama is losing his patience with Republicans.
Obama heavily critiqued the Republican Party during his speech in Atlanta. He compared their policies those to the disappointing Bush Administration. “They don’t have a single idea that’s different from George Bush’s ideas, not one,” according to President Obama.
Obama added, “You cut taxes for millionaires, you cut rules for special interests, and you cut working folks loose to fend for themselves. That was the philosophy of the last administration and their friends in Congress.”
Currently, Republicans want to keep all of those policies, but Obama is not willing to extend tax cuts to those who bring in at least $250,000 annually. Obama only wants to extend tax cuts to small businesses, the poor, and the middle class: those who need it.
Obama said that the election in November is about one clear choice, “whether we want to go forward, or whether we want to go backward,” and relive the days of the Bush Administration and neoconservative policies again.
While the Obama Administration has stabilized the American economy and is slowly rebuilding it, the Republican Party has done all it can to protect the rich and stand in the way of providing support for the middle class of the United States.
With the leadership of President Obama, the economy can continue to grow and strengthen. But if Congress is taken over by the Republicans on November 2nd, a rewind back to the costly ways of the Bush Administration is more than likely.
