Obama's Record: Here Are The Facts; Just The Facts!

Facts are tough.
They're hard for a lot of people to face.
They can be brutal.
But if you're considering voting for President Obama, you need to face these facts -- and face them now. All of these things have happened since President Obama took office. They happened on his watch. Here are the facts:

1) Unemployment: The number of people unemployed has grown by over a million during Obama’s presidency.

2) Long-term Unemployment: The average duration of unemployment has more than doubled, to an astonishing 40.8 weeks.

3) Jobs: Nearly 1.7 million jobs have been lost.

4) Income: Median household income has declined by nearly $1,000.

5) Poverty: The number of people in poverty has grown by over 6 million.

6) Hunger: Food stamp participation has increased by more than 14 million people, to a devastating 46.2 million.

7) Health Care: Average family health insurance premiums have increased by more than $1,500.

8. Energy: Gas prices have doubled -- and are currently rising at an alarming rate.

9) Housing: Foreclosures have spiked to a record one-million-plus annually.

10) Debt: Each family’s share of the publicly-held national debt has skyrocketed by more than $35,000, to nearly $90,000.
