I agree. Obama says that if he starts to see a serious probelm, than he will change the policy, but for now he's watching the Cubans have the freedom they deserve.They aren't hurting us.

Should undocumented immigrants have access to social services such as Medicaid, welfare, or public education? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should undocumented immigrants have access to social services such as Medicaid, welfare, or public education? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Obama states that "We have to demand responsibility from people living here illegally.  They must be required to admit that they broke the law.  They should be required to register, pay their taxes, pay a fine, and learn English..." I agree with this because they shouldn't have the right to have any of this that Americans have because as Americans we pay taxes, we know how to speak english, and things Americans have to do. Undocumented immigrants should, as Obama said, regesiter, pay taxes, pay a fine, and learn english.

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agree with Obama when he states, " for my mother to die of cancer at the age of 53 and have to spend the last months of her life in the hospital room arguing with insurance companies because they're saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don't have to pay her treatment, there's something fundamentally wrong about that." I think its wrong to not help someone with their medical bills because they can't afford it, if there sick, and they can't afford to pay the bill, they should atleast get help with it.

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agree that same sex marrige should be legal. In the Decleration of Independece, it gave us our independece. If two people are good to each other, no matter boy and girl, boy and boy, or girl and girl, they should have the right to be together. It bothers me to think that a president can be against that because the United States is supposdely for the people, and care about the people, so if your against same sex marriage, how do you actually feel about the people? There is nothing wrong with the same sex loving each other, because at the end of the day they love and care for each other just like any boy girl relationship would. Their not weird, or stupid, their humans who have their own independence to love and care for who they want. Thats what America has taught us.

Should sex education in our schools be based on abstinence only? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should sex education in our schools be based on abstinence only? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

Although it doesn't state that Obama is pro or con, I do agree with what he says. Obama states "If a teacher is given a chance or two chances or three chances but still does not improve, there's no excuse for that person to continue teaching." I agree because our taxes that our parents pay goes to teachers, if a teacher has had many chances to imporve there teaching ethics, than they should not be able to continue teaching. Our tax money should go to teachers who help students progress and learn a good education. A tenure should not go to someone who can not do there job right.

I would have to agree with Romeny here. Since Obama has been in office, the gas prices have been very high.

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

For starters, I completely agree with Obama, and disagree highly with Romney. Obama states, "Today, the wealthiest Americans are paying the lowest taxes in over half a century. This isn't like in the early 50s, when the top tax rate was over 90%. This isn't even like the early 80s, when the top tax rate was about 70%. Under President Clinton, the top rate was only about 39%. Today, thanks to loopholes and shelters, a quarter of all millionaires now pay lower tax rates than millions of you, millions of middle-class families. Some billionaires have a tax rate as low as 1%. One percent..." Middle class pays the most in taxes, and in the economy the middle class has it the hardest, with jobs, taxes, education, money, etc. Millionaires don't have to face the problems we middle class do. It would make more sense for people with loads of money to pay more than people that don't have a lot of money. It's easier for millionaires to do it than middle class citizens.

Should most adults have the right to carry a concealed handgun? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should most adults have the right to carry a concealed handgun? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I'm against adults having the right to carry concealed handguns because I think it would give them the thought that  they can shoot anything that "disrepects" them. Having a concealed handgun might, like Obama said, a "potential atmosphere where most innocent people could get shot during altercations."

Barack Obama (D) - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Samantha Aruanno Political Opinion | Scoop.it

I agee with Obama's opinion because even though people told him to just let the industry die, he refused to let that happen. Obama did everything possible to restore and reconstruct the industry. Obama did what he could to help automakers settle there differences. He made the industry boom, Chrysler grown faster in the United States than any other car company, Ford is still investing billions in U.S plants and factories. The industry, because of Obama increased 160,000 jobs.

 

"On the day I took office, our auto industry was on the verge of collapse. Some even said we should let it die. With a million jobs at stake, I refused to let that happen."
