Democrats are asking for your vote tomorrow and what's more they've worked hard to deserve it.
Here is a list of some of the reasons why Democrats have earned your vote:
Democrats, having inherited the Bush Recession which was in the process of shedding millions of
American jobs, stepped up to the plate and passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009. This helped America find the bottom of the crisis, created millions of jobs and prevented America from sliding into a Second Great Depression. Only three Republicans voted for this.
Democrats saved the auto industry in America, thereby keeping millions more Americans employed. Some Republicans thought Detroit should go bankrupt and take a lot of hard-working Americans with it. Democrats said No.
Democrats brought you the Affordable Care Act, the first meaningful health care reform in years. This will lower the cost of health care, increase access and actually lower the deficit. Before this, every American was an intersection or doctor's visit from being uninsurable for life. Only one Republican in Congress voted for this, but the Republicans in the House have voted to repeal it over 30 times.
Democrats got Bin Laden, ended the Iraq War and are winding down the war in Afghanistan.
Democrats reformed Wall Street with the Dodd-Frank Bill limiting the risk that Wall Street firms can take on in order to stop the financial industry from wrecking the economy. Again.
Democrats prevented Republicans from privatizing Social Security and will do it again if the need arises. The other guys want to put the same people who lost half your 401(k) in charge of your Social Security benefits. Democrats put their foot down and said No.
Democrats increased the number of Pell Grants, created tax credits for families with children in
college, kept student loan interest rates low and are working to improve education at all levels.
Democrats have a job plan that is ready to pass and can be implemented immediately. Economists
have argued that The American Jobs Act (which is fully-paid for) will create more than two million jobs through targeted tax cuts and badly-needed investment in infrastructure.
Democrats cut taxes for 95% of Americans.
Democrats learned the lessons of Katrina and rebuilt FEMA which saved lives and helped Americans
struggling with last week's storm.
Democrats have passed policies that have primed the economy to create 12 million jobs over the next
four years. Republicans are hoping they can claim credit for those jobs, if they're elected.
Democrats have restored American power and respect around the world.
Democrats have voted to protect the rights of all citizens in our democracy. From the right to marry
who you want to the right to decide what to do with your own body to the right to be paid the same for the same work, Democrats have championed your rights over and over again. Republicans like to talk about liberty, but primarily it's your freedom to be screwed over by Republicans they are most
interested in protecting.
Democrats have worked hard for America and will continue the struggle to create a better, stronger,
fairer America. This healthier America can only be created with the help of all of us.
VOTE DEMOCRAT tomorrow, Nov. 6!
