Nov. 1st: KSLA News 12 Re-Elect President Obama Editorial

Posted: Updated:

There are times in our lives that we find ourselves in a mess, and it can take years to get back on our feet. Four years ago, the middle class was in such a predicament.

After eight years of crushing republican right wing policies, the rich got richer and the middle class got poorer.

In four short years, President Obama has restored our hope and faith in our future by protecting social security, making a college education more affordable, and equalizing pay for women, the fastest growing segment of the American workforce. President Obama ended the war in Iraq, reunited military personnel with their families, and wiped America's most notorious enemy from the face of the earth.

Most importantly, President Obama fought for comprehensive healthcare reform.

I believe Barack Obama should be re-elected because he cares more about the middle class, not just the millionaires.

President Obama is not for the rich getting richer at the expense of the middle class, has not put profits over people, nor replaced the vow of social security with a voucher to end it.

Look, Rome was not built in a day and it is going to take time for us to fully recover. I know the grass may look greener on the other side when things are rough...but don't turn back.

Let's continue moving forward four more years with President Barack Obama.

I'm Stephanie Lynch with the Democratic Party in Caddo Parish.
