 In the last four years...
  • The debt of the United States has grown to a startling $16 trillion dollars — the largest total in our nation's history.[1]
  • As the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reported, the Obama Administration has racked up 4 straight trillion-dollar plus annual budget deficits. [2]
  • Unemployment has remained over 8% for 43 straight months — a first since the Great Depression.[3] The real unemployment rate — taking into account those who have stopped looking or who are working part-time and want more work — is almost 15%.[4]
  • More than 23 million Americans are out of work or underemployed.[5]
  • Because of this troubled economy, the number of Americans receiving food stamp assistance — more than 46 million in all — is at a record high, according to the government. [6]
  • The United States has slid from 3rd in ease of starting a new business to 13th in the world, trailing unlikely competitors like Rwanda and Macedonia.[7]

Jodi is the proud mother of triplets and a former ICU nurse. She is also a lifelong Democrat. In 2008, she not only voted for President Obama, but she also contributed to his campaign. In 2012, she's excited to change her vote to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan
Lynne B. ~ Voter from Davenport, IA

Lucas W. ~ Voter from Omaha, NE
Lucas is a veteran of 3 tours in Iraq & Afghanistan, who previously voted for Sen. Kerry and President Obama. Upon returning, Lucas started his own global courier business. He believes the president has not done enough to help small business owners and is changing his vote this year.

Anita is a proud mother of two daughters (one of whom, Katelyn, joined her in talking about why she is changing her vote). Anita recently found work in a factory. While she was an Obama supporter four years ago, she's voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in 2012.
