President Barack Obama has achieved much since taking office. Some of his many achievements include the following: saved the U.S. auto industry; passed the Lilly Ledbetter Act (equal pay for equal work); credit card reform; was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize; passed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act; passed Student Loan Reform Act (lowering heavy student debt); doubled funding for Pell Grants; passed middle class tax cuts (saving an average of more than $3,000 per family); found and killed Osama Bin laden; ended the Iraq War.
Recently, Medicare was saved $716 billion by cutting subsidies to insurance companies and payments to nursing homes and hospitals. Chinese imports have been restricted. Oil production is up and oil imports are the lowest in years. In 2010, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was passed: no caps on lifetime limits, no denial for pre-existing conditions for adults and children, savings on prescription drugs, children remain on their parents’ insurance policy until 26, free preventative services, etc.
President Obama has always been a champion for the middle class. What a record of accomplishments in just four years.
