The President’s strong record on Israel
President Obama’s commitment to the state of Israel has never wavered. That was reaffirmed earlier this week when he and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had an hour-long conversation in which they reiterated their shared commitment to addressing the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, and pledged to stay in close consultation. Take a look at this video of Israeli President Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Ehud Barak talking about the President’s unprecedented level of support for Israel, then share it with your friends:
Romney’s still-secret tax returns
This week, Newsweek reported that Romney asked Paul Ryan for 10 years of tax returns before picking him as his running mate — showing that he understands their importance as a vetting tool. But Romney refuses to give the American people the same level of disclosure that he asks of others. He needs to come clean and release multiple years of tax returns, so voters know whether he tried to avoid paying his fair share — and judge how that might influence the tax reform debate if he were president. Watch this videoabout Romney’s refusal to release more than one full year of his tax returns, then share it with others.
Obamacare by the numbers
We’re already seeing clear signs that Obamacare is working. Reports show that consumers have saved more than $2 billion on their premiums with the help of Obamacare’s protections against overcharging by insurance companies. And the Census Bureau reported this week that the number of uninsured Americans fell from 16.3 percent to 15.7 percent this year — the first decrease in years. Take a look at this post on Obamacare’s impact, and be sure others do, too.
The choice for middle-class and low-income families
Over the past four years, President Obama has been dedicated to strengthening the middle class, and making sure everyone who is willing to work has the opportunity to climb out of poverty and into the middle class. But Mitt Romney has a different plan — he’d return us to the same failed economic policies of the past that benefited a wealthy few, let down the middle class, and crashed the economy. Check out campaign policy director James Kvaal’s post about what each candidate’s economic plan would mean for middle-class and low-income families, and pass it along.
