It’s Sunday and while re-broadcasts of the President and Nancy Pelosi signing the HCR into law is exciting …reports are that our President made a surprise visit to Afghanistan, his first;updates when needed. This week was great even the low points were exciting and eye-opening because it gave me new energy…we have a fight on our watch ladies and gentlemen … to push the US to be the best it can be, to be more self-sufficient, to be number ONE again. We have a chance to move into the 21st Century and with that we can also be compassionate enough to help other Americans; to pitch in a little more so that others can begin to do better, to finally demand no force financial regulations; oh the list of good things are so long it’s just incredible. The last administration left such a mess the clean-up could last years. This week, we saw President Obama act with resolve, he pushed back, stayed the course…with nancy pelosi’s/harry reid’s help passed HCR, showed tough love to Israel, russia/US agreement to reduce nuclear arms, use a well-used procedure to get his cabinet filled because Republicans have decided to break him if and or make sure he cannot govern the way a President should,possibly create more sanctions for Iran to think about and took the student loan process away from the banks and guess what? we will save 60billion dollars to re-invest in … Americans people!!! We the People… good …no that’s huge
It’s Saturday …Some not all Democrats have definitely shown Americans exactly who are the adults in both Chambers of Congress. The world didn’t end, no one saw anything different happen with the exception of the New Law of the Land that will help everyone not just poor people. If implemented correctly, smoothly HCR will cover over 30mil people and create an obvious up-tick in employees; it will also move us into the 21st Century and that is about time. The fight is not over as concerned voters, we need to push movement toward climate, immigration, education and more

In direct response to the party of no, the party that said hell no to Boehner, Cantor, Palin and those on the right who have been blocking the Obama administration and it’s right to govern the President has or will make recess appointments and believe me i am relieved.
