This election comes down to what Congress has done and what Congress hasn’t done. The Bush administration did not work for eight years, and Obama has worked on getting things fixed where Bush didn’t fix anything. Jesse Ventura said on CNN a few days ago we inherited this mess. Obama didn’t make this mess. George W. Bush made this mess. We can’t rejoice on tax cuts that weren’t passed by Congress and put out there by Paul Ryan and didn’t pass his own plan on the tax bills. Pence has voted in few things, and this Mourdock doesn’t want to work with Congress and Senate. We need to find work for these people, not vote against the bills that need passes.

This Romney plan to raise insurance is not a good plan, harming the elderly’s plan on Medicare when we can’t afford our health care. What’s up with that idea? I heard someone say a few days ago, you better like the Obama plan on health care or this won’t work. Obama has the plan working for us. The math on the Romney plan doesn’t work. The leadership Obama is providing works for those who want a bill passed. The Congress has not worked at all.

Congress is all wrong going on and on about what is not getting done in this country. The Reagan years were like that. We need to go forward, not move backward. We need to see the light at the end of the tunnel and see the thinking about tomorrow still move us in the right direction.

We need to agree on things.
