Why I Changed My Vote

Many Americans across the country are changing their vote in 2012. Please share your story with us today.

Artur Davis
Former Congressman (D-AL) Rep. Artur Davis served in Congress from 2003-2011 and was co-chair for President Obama’s 2008 campaign.  He voted against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), and after years of disappointment with the president’s policies, Rep. Davis endorsed Gov. Romney.

 

In the last four years…

  • The debt of the United States has grown to a startling $16 trillion dollars — the largest total in our nation’s history.[1]
  • As the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reported, the Obama Administration has racked up 4 straight trillion-dollar plus annual budget deficits. [2]
  • Unemployment has remained over 8% for 43 straight months — a first since the Great Depression.[3] The real unemployment rate — taking into account those who have stopped looking or who are working part-time and want more work — is almost 15%.[4]
  • More than 23 million Americans are out of work or underemployed.[5]
  • Because of this troubled economy, the number of Americans receiving food stamp assistance — more than 46 million in all — is at a record high, according to the government. [6]
  • The United States has slid from 3rd in ease of starting a new business to 13th in the world, trailing unlikely competitors like Rwanda and Macedonia.[7]
