    I say NO!
    (1) Obamination went through:
    Its going to be a gigantic job killer. A ton of people in the lower and middle class will lose their jobs aka group health insurance and will now be required to buy insurance. :eusa_eh: The lower class has a larger unemployment rate than the middle class and its about to go up!
    (2) Amnesty is next:
    Healthcare dominated the news, but there was a pro-illegal alien march on Washington. They want amnesty and more incentive to illegal immigration. Amnesty adversely effects the lower class the most. Most come over and compete for jobs they could and would do. They also overburden hospitals and schools to which the poor is more effected, since they are likely to use these same facilities.
    (3) Lastly - CAP and TRADE and Global Warming regulation:
    Obamination killed job, cap and trade will pick off the ones still left. Ouch! So in the end the hardest hit sector of unemployment is going to get hit 100 fold harder by Obamination, Amnesty and Cap and Trade. Then they are required to get healthcare or get fined or tossed in jail.

    He is no Robin Hood that is foresure!:(

    So, because Obama didn't fall for your GOP fearmongering and talking points, it is your opinion that he is not for the poor/lower class? Does that about sum up your BULLSHIT post?

    When we look at the result of Reagannomics, Bush I's 'Voodoo Economics', and Dubya's 'give the rich everything they want' policies, we KNOW poor and middle class people didn't flourish under them. In general, poor and middleclass people have done much better under democratic party economics than they have under GOP economics.

    The Marxist Obamination cares for poor people just about as much as Marxist Mao did.....

    ...let's see...how many poor did Marxist Mao kill?.....about 70 million or so...?

    You must think Obama some sort of messiah? You expect him to fix in one year, what it took Dubya 8 to F up. Newsflash, he is not a messiah, eventhough by your expectations, you wingnuts seem to think he is.

    He said his stimulus package would keep unemployment from exceeding 8%.

    He either lied or is incompetent - most likely both.

    It's rare finding a Republican who can even SAY the words, "Middle Class".
