  • The cutting of the military budget has/ will continue to cut re-enlistment bonuses which thus causes my husband to choose not to re-enlist.

    Also by releasing terrorists from gitmo, he is putting my hubby in more danger.

  • Just waiting till the tax rules to change and shrink my return. Otherwise, I think O'Bama is okay. Not for supporting all the folks that don't want to work and contribute to our tax base though.

  • We're already seeing local taxes increased in response to some of his programs and the added drain they will put on the state, so "in our household" we will have less money after buying the same things we bought 6 months ago. But his job creation promises and such? Not doing much of anything at all here, aside from getting people's hopes up for no good reason.

  • It has brought more hope into my houshold. We are seeing all the reasons we voted for him come to fruition and it gives us hope that our country is headed in the right direction which makes me happy, which makes my family happier. But if you are talking about actual job gain/loss or money gain/loss, nothing has changed.
