Unsustainable record

To the Editor:

An unsustainable record of spending and illogical decisions has put us in serious danger. Some of these easily verifiable results of the faulty decisions follow. All of this happened since President Barack Obama was inaugurated.

During Obama’s first term of office, unemployment has never been under 8 percent, until this past month.

There has been nearly $6 trillion of new debt under Obama.

For the first time in history, America’s credit rating was downgraded.

One in six Americans lives in poverty.

Forty-six million Americans are receiving food stamps.

Fewer Americans are working than when Obama took office.

The average American household income dropped by 8 percent.

The average gas price has soared almost 100 percent.

Since Obama’s health care program passed, health care costs have risen 18 percent. It is said no one in Congress read the 2,600-page bill. Unbelievably, the Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “we have to pass the bill in order to see what is in it.”

Congress is excluded from inclusion in the bill. A number of Obama’s favorites, mostly unions, also have received waivers.

If Obama is re-elected, our only hope is the rapture.
