Nancy Churchill’s facts are off base

Here goes Nancy Churchill again in her Oct. 1-7, 2014, article. She says Republicans are just the wrong choice for moving our country forward. I don’t know where she receives her facts.

For example, Obama’s economy has hit his voters the hardest. Young people, single women and minorities have fared the worst during his administration. Their median household income has fallen 4.4 percent, or in dollar terms, household income fell to $52,098 from $54,478. According to the Sentier research, households headed by single women saw their income fall by roughly 7 percent. Those under 25 had their income decline by 9.6 percent, black heads of households fell 10.9 percent, and Hispanic income fell 4.5 percent. The highest jobless rates are for the key components of the Obama voters — blacks (12.6 percent), Hispanics (9.4 percent), those with less than a high school diploma (11 percent) and teens (23.7 percent).

Nancy Churchill indicated “People are out of work because there are at least 2.1 job seekers for every available job.” That may be part of the problem. However, with all the government entitlements, it is not always beneficial to seek employment. The yearly entitlements can range from $26,000 to $32,000 (not including free or subsidized health insurance).

A recent poll indicated only 22 percent said they are better off since Obama took office. Under the Obama and Democrat-controlled Senate, our debt has reached $17.5 trillion, more than doubled under his administration. Also, we can’t forget the substantial increase in the 47-plus million on welfare.

Finally, let us look at all the scandals/cover-ups.

1. Benghazi — caused by a video?

2. Fast and Furious — Eric Holder and Obama knew nothing about it.

3. IRS — investigating Republican, nonprofit applications

4. NSA spying — Obama said he was not aware of it.

5. ObamaCare — Obama said you will keep your doctor and hospital and have lower costs.

6. ISIS/Iraq — finally. Our brave soldiers died for the victory, all for nothing because of Obama’s political decision to withdraw our troops.

We need to go to the polls and vote the Democrats out and give a strong message to President Obama.

    OMG!! I have never read such a letter full of malarky. We can thank the GOP for voting AGAINST everything President Obama has tried to do. And YOU can thank Bush for getting us into the economical disaster we found out about AFTER he left office. Come on, be truthful, Mr. Vitelli!!!

    Exactly right on the article Frank. I am an college upperclassman at Monmouth College studying Austrian Economics (often the economic theories behind many conservative plans). Keynesian Economics is the opposing side, and often used by Liberal economist (these are often times true but not always i.e. Bill Clinton being a Democratic Austrian economist and Bush Jr. being a Keynesian economist). People are starting to see these cover ups and complete waste of tax payer dollars, and the recent voting shows the American people are rejecting Keynesian economics. The democrats do not look at the future picture, they look at the now. Their plans do not include inflation, any sort of innovation, and market fluctuations. They try to get the American votes off pure emotions and no real evidence what so over, and now the American people have spoken with their votes showing that real change needs to occur. We are 18 trillion dollars in debt now, and what precious little to show for it? All we have are bailed out Crony businesses which prevented competition and innovation, and a dysfunctional misleading health care system. Hopefully now we will start promoting the American individual which will create entrepreneurship and innovation, and we will stop listening to Democratic politicians telling us they know “what is right for us.” Let the people tell what is right for themselves, and who is some stranger politician to tell us what is right for us.
