Fiscal Cliff Deal Left Most of White House 2013 Budget Unfunded: Still Worth Fighting For

President Obama proposed a 256 page with a hundred page appendix last February and yet if you turn on a television set you hear people feigning concern about his leadership or that his plans lack details. Congress has only passed a tiny fraction of what's in his budget including more money for Medicare and Medicaid, jobs, education, foreign affairs, jobs, infrastructure, patent/intellectual property protection as well as improvements in defense, energy and the environment, immigration and closing more loopholes for rich. I made some full text highlights of his proposals here or you can read the full text at the White House website here.

Why should you do that? Because as usual the press is misleading the public. February 2012 was a long time ago and yet many details of his proposal have rarely made it into the mainstream media. They are claiming that the President doesn't have a plan, that he's not showing leadership, that he is trying to increase spending on wasteful programs and not helping to grow jobs. The White House has been sending out emails to ask for your help. Get the facts and discuss them with others. The election may be over but the President needs support for his programs that will America. I believe most Americans would support the vast majority of his proposals if they knew exactly what they were.
