Why Obama?

 The SOAR Executive Board unanimously endorsed President Barack Obama for reelection and strongly believes he deserves to be re-elected for a second term.  He has earned the right to continue the job he was elected to do in 2008.  He has turned around our economy that was in the midst of a deep recession by focusing his efforts on creating jobs, recommitting our nation to manufacturing and enforcing U.S. trade laws.

President Obama and his Administration have succeeded in regulating Wall Street and passing health care reform. Because of the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies no longer can deny care to those with pre-existing conditions, no longer can drop people when they get sick, and no longer can they place lifetime limits on care.

Because of President Obama’s emphasis on jobs and his administration’s emphasis on enforcing our nation’s trade laws in his first term, our members who work in a wide range of industries including, steel, aluminum, glass and paper making; auto parts and wind turbine manufacturing; copper mining, tire building, and oil refining all have benefited from his policies.

President Obama has extended the life of the Medicare Trust Fund through strict enforcement of fraud protections and has enhanced Medicare by changes made through the Affordable Care Act. President Obama is committed to protecting Social Security and is a strong advocate of keeping Wall Street’s greedy hands out of the Social Security Trust Fund.

This President has upheld his commitment to the working middle class and retirees of this great nation and deserves to be reelected President of the United States of America!

Jim Centner, SOAR Director
