To help the lower middle class I would look at starting FICA widthdrawls at $50k and stopping them at $400K for annual incomes. This tax is a flat tax and can’t be avoided thru loop holes in the tax system.

I suggest we build more High-tech Scientific Medical Research Hospitals.All Americans should have access to free medical and healthcare. I think if Canada can do it so can we. Bring more industries here and return our manufacturing jobs…clothing, shoes, and product manufacturing and high tech, auto manufacturing, airplanes etc Don’t allow our manufaturers to go overseas. Fine them if they do. We need to grow with more high tech jobs but we also need to keep what America has lost for the average worker…trade jobs. Where did our steelmills go and why did it cost more here in the USA to continue with our own resources? Where are the farmers, the bricklaying, the glass and pottery companies, the call centers, steelmill workers..how can we thrive if all our resources are sent overseas. I live in Florida and now KSC has 8,000 workers laid off and it all has a trickling down affect on our economy here in Brevard alone. And crime has increased and yet, our policeforces are renewing proposals to lay off law enforcers when we need them the most! Our schools are affected too. Since when did we as children have to provide our own school supplies or expect the teachers to pay for them? Our public schools had the supplies and resources they needed to teach back then.
We need more schools built, more shopping malls, more small businesses but this economy as it is cannot improve without enough jobs period. We need to think high tech sure, but most of all, we need our trade jobs back too..the foundation of America that once all other countries looked up to. And the elderly, where are their breaks with increased rentals and higher prices on everything. How can social security be enough without people sacrificing by eating less, spending little at the grocery stores and cutting back on their prescriptions and doctor visits. The world is not looking very good and we all need hope and change. Don’t just say it, do it. Times are tough. We do not and cannot allow ‘illegal’ immigration…it takes away what jobs there are, costs more in medical and education for our own people…I believe in “American’s First”. We have always been a compassionate nation but illegal is just that..a crime.

when the republicans ask “are you better off today than you were 4 years ago?” ask romney and gang, “how much better off are you than you were 4 years ago?”
the implication is that romney and gang have done significantly better than joe blow…and should maybe give them pause to think about the significant problems we have come through…maybe not smelling like a rose exactly yet, but on the way.

Who wants a president that can hide money just like, or better than Bernard Madoff? Madoff didn’t have the interests of the people in mind, only himself. It’s the same as Mitt Romney. I’m not at all confident with the idea of a president who’s able to direct government funds to businesses he may own or benefit from. How would we know if he continuously presents a maze of business entities, and neglects to reveal his taxes on the sources of his multiple sources of income.
Is he funded by Madoff-like backers? He should be forced to put up, or get out of the race. We want to see the tax records. It is important because our president should be an open book, not hidden behind a maze of loopholes and shell corporations. NO WALL STREET PRESIDENTS ALLOWED.

The best way to address this is to take this video – and essentially have a voice over that says
“You did it because greedy corporate friends of Romney put you there – without any consideration for American jobs”
Put some one that most people know is a straight shooter on stage for maybe 10 min. Mon thru Wed. prime time. Huge screen, I repeat (Hugh Screen). Show the person that is telling the lie. Remember people believe what comes out the mouth of a person before they believe the he say/she say. Show the Pinocchio fact checker after each lie or truth, and have his noise grow and in some cases pants on fire. ( his pants on fire lets save pinnochio and put him out.)
The people who is going to vote for Obama is already good, we know him, You don’t have to spend as much time re-selling him. If the Repub can reschudule a whole day to a storm. you guys should be able to work with 10 min.
Obama-Biden 2012 Stop The Romney Lies

Obama is not a Democrat, he is his own ideology. He is not an American. I fear for my country! It needs to get out that Obama is a Communist, the media is communist, he has communist followers protecting him. I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK! I do not want a communist as president! PLEASE DO NOT WIN THIS ELECTION!

Dear Sirs, Please ask President Obama to have ” Fireside chats,” with the American people at least once a week until the National Election is over, like FDR did. And tell it like it is as well as the negative side of this radical Republicanism fostered by Romney and Ryan. I am surprised that is own staff did not mention having Fireside Chats.
Also, he needs to counter the Republican Documentary, “2016, Obama’s America.” And show what devastating results American’s will face if the Romney and Ryan ticket is elected. To me Ryan, is no more than an egotistical politician so he can have his moment of glory no matter what happens to the Middle Class or the Working Poor. What a scarey thought!
To me the best Democratic Ad I have seen on TV is where Grandma is thrown out of a wheelchair over a cliff. But this time Romney and Ryan will be throwing everyone over the cliff. That ad visually stuck with me and I am sure it made an impact on millions of voters.

Last week I made a suggestion to remove subsidies for oil companies and subsidies alternative fueled cars instead. I made the suggestion assuming Democrats gain control. Then I realized that even if they gained control it may not happen because big oil controls congress. However, I think that just by offering it up you will win the election by a landslide. Everyone wants one of these cars that don’t use gas but only the rich can afford one. It’s the rich against the poor in this election and we all know there’s more poor than rich. The problem is they are brainwashed by the right wing media to vote against what’s best for them. There’s more right wing media because it funded by the rich. We don’t even have left wing radio in our town. So, if you really want to win this election, say you will try to make it happen, even if know it doesn’t have a chance in hell of actually happening. I think it was Henry Ford that said he wants everyone to afford the model T and that almost happened. It could be believable if you say it too. It’s just a little fib that could put you over the top if it’s done at just the right time. I personally think the perfect hybrid would be electric/hydrogen but nobody is even proposing that yet. Maybe if the oil companies have to keep their subsidies you could put them on this project to get it.
