Just Sayin' - Periodic Comments on Our Political Situation

Welcome to Just Sayin' what will be some common sense comments on what is going on in the world of politics. Posts will be brief, to the point, and usually cover a certain topic.

For the first post since the State of the Union is today, I wonder why all the Republicans think our country is in such a bad state. When President Obama took over, the economy was in the worst state since the Great Depression. Seven Years late the stock market has nearly doubled and unemployment is at 5%. Most surprisingly for Republicans must be that the job growth has come mostly from the private sector as public sector employment has gone down. Regular monthly totals constantly show over 200,000 new jobs created. Yet they'll say the economy is a disaster. There is a way to go like ensuring pay equity and getting more full time employment for people, but Republicans don't seem to have these as their priorities.

Millions of more people have health insurance thanks to Obamacare, giving them more security that they will get the care they need when they get sick. Republicans don't like this and so want to get rid of Obamacare and will say that it's ruining America.

These are a couple of the accomplishments that many will not give Obama credit for. However it's been that way for seven years just voters need to be aware of the truth when Republican distort it on the campaign trail this year. Just sayin'......
