On April 29, 2009, Barack Obama had punch 100 days as President of the United States. He had inherited the biggest financial and fiscal mess, probaby in history. In his Inaugural address, he said we had to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin the work of remaking America. The first 100 days proved they weren’t just empty words… he has lead the way for change every step of the way.
Let’s take a look at what’s he has accomplished in the first 100 days!
** The 1st Executive Order was to close Guatanamo. Guantanamo has been the sight of much torture and abuse – known about and endorsed by the previous American government.
** Tax cuts in a stimulus bill to help the average American
** Refinanced mortgages for millions of families, who in Obama’s words, played by the rules. He has saved their homes.
** He has lifted the ban on stem cell research, paving the way for new cures for many diseases including Parkinson’s Disease.
** His anger over the AIG bonus scandel, stopping them from paying out millions in bonuses, after accepting billions in a bail-out. How can you bonus someone for putting a company near bankruptcy?
** Stood up to the automakers for reckless spending, and while having their hand out, did not have a feasible plan to put the company back on track.
These are just a few of Barack Obama’s accomplishments in his first 100 days. I wonder has his critics accomplished that must in the past 100 days.
