"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history.  There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things.  Among them are...Texas oil millionaires and an occasional politician or business man from other areas.  Their number is negligible and they are stupid." 


--President Dwight D. Eisenhower, November 8, 1954

As we ring in 2015, here is a list of things we can thank President Obama for.  In spite of total, unrelenting opposition from the Republican Party, he has managed to accomplish the following on a national scale:
 
  1. Economy growing at its fastest rate in a decade
  2.  Lowest gas prices in 5 years
  3.  Stock market at record highs, above 18,000
  4.  Personal income up 3% in 2014
  5.  Payrolls grew by 300,000 in November
  6.  10.9 million jobs created during the past 57
       months of straight growth

  7.  Manufacturing at strongest growth since the 90's
  8.  Deficit at pre-recession levels, cut by 2/3
  9.  Trade deficit falling; exports increasing
10.  Consumer spending up, consumer confidence
       highest in 8 years

11.  10 million people enrolled in Obamacare, beating
       targets

12.  Health care costs falling

As a result of the above, a majority of Americans view the economy as 'on the right track.'  Thank you Mr. President!

From Elizabeth Warren for Senate:

A few days ago, I spoke at the Re/code conference – a room full
of some of Silicon Valley’s top tech executives.

Somebody asked me:

“How are the 50% of people who can vote – that don’t –
supposed to actually believe any politician who says we are
going to rebuild this country? Energy infrastructure,
Internet infrastructure, education – all these things matter…
Why aren’t we doing that?”

I got a little wound up in the two-minute answer I gave
him – but it seems to have struck a nerve with a lot of
people. In the past couple of days, more than 2.3 million
people have watched the clip on Facebook.
