EDITOR:

In response to Douglas Iverson's Nov. 28 letter, "Use your vote wisely next time," the American people finally woke up and made their voice heard because of the lies perpetrated on us by Obama and his administration for the past six years. "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor," for one. If the stock market is so great, why did the Democrats vote down the plan to let me put some of my Social Security dollars into the market and benefit from the growth? Millions of people could now benefit. Can't have it both ways.

The unemployment percentage is artificially low because approximately 92 million unemployed workers are not counted since they stopped looking for work. Aren't they still unemployed?

Iverson pointed out that the deficit for the year has been reduced, but why didn't he point out that Obama's $8 trillion increase in our national debt is more than all of the other presidents combined?

Minimum wage should be a state issue, not national. The minimum for New York certainly would be different that Mississippi. The middle class' average income has declined because of the regulations placed on businesses from the Obama administration. Businesses have taken full-time jobs and made them part-time because of Obamacare. They can't make a profit and grow. Obama doesn't believe in capitalism. The Keystone pipeline would create jobs at good wages, but was voted down by Democrats.

Thank you, America, for your vote.
