RIGHT-ON to President Obama - Speech in Boston

October 30, 2013 -  President Obama at Faneuil Hall, Boston 
BOSTON - October 30, 2013, Today in Boston, MA, President Barack Obama, took on his negative critics and doomsayers regarding the "delay" of the operation of Healthcare.org, the website for people to signup for health care insurance.

He spoke of the importance of having quality health care and cited why the Affordable Health Care insurance mandates ensured better/best plans in the marketplace.  He spoke of the long haul.  He praised the Massachusetts plan and reminded the audience of the "delays" and growing pains of the Romney plan prior to getting the quirks out of the plan.

He spoke of his displeasure with the delays of the website and vowed to see it through for correctness.

Hecklers
True classic and smooth demeanor, the president's rebound after "hecklers" was true eloquence.  His response statement to the hecklers was a Barack Obama smile and a comment, "that is the wrong rally - we did Energy this summer".  He was responding to what the heckers were protesting for.  He was truly, Mr. President. 

His comments were as always rooted in leadership for all, fairness, calm, common sense, calibrated and pressing forward.  These are not the points that the doomsayers are taking into consideration.  The gamesmanship continues at the risk of the masses.  

"I feel that there is constant overreaction by those who want the Affordable Health Care law to fail.  Additionally, the Republicans and uninformed individuals, have overplayed their hands with disengenuousness.  They look straight into the camera and speak with mostly to all misrepresentation of the facts.  That is not helping our country.  The Affordable Health Care law is the law of the land.  Yes.  It is also a major accomplishment for the people of America - It is also the Signature law of our 44th President, Barack Hussein Obama, Mr. President", said Mary Glass, Chair/CEO, Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC.

    State Rep Jon Richards,19th District Running for AG - He's added to MPA LLC Political Transcript Vetting

    MILWAUKEE | State Representative Jon Richards, 19th District, has entered the race of Wisconsin Attorney General.

    MPA LLC adds him to the Vetting of candidates Political Transcript - Burke and Walker for Governor.  Below is his announcement.
    ========================
    Dear Friend,
     
    My name is Jon Richards and I'm running for Attorney General.

    I’m running for Attorney General because I believe Wisconsin needs an experienced, independent leader who can set politics aside and focus on real priorities for our state’s citizens.
     
    As your Attorney General, I bring the experience as an attorney and lawmaker with a history of team-building to tackle some of Wisconsin’s toughest issues. I will be tough on crime and ensure that local law enforcement can count on a reliable partner at the Department of Justice. We need to address head-on the scourge of violence in our cities and schools, the alarming increase in the rate of heroin abuse, the problem of domestic violence, the needless apathy about drunk driving, and the delays in justice in our court system.
     
    I know we need to be a stronger partner with local authorities to improve our neighborhoods. That’s why in my role on the state finance committee I was the lead voice for fair pay for our state’s prosecutors and smarter investment in our criminal justice system. We need to give local law enforcement tough, smart tools to prevent crime. As Attorney General, I want to support programs like the successful drug courts operating around the state, which hold drug abusers accountable but addresses their addiction without filling up our jails – saving taxpayers money.
     
    Wisconsin expects an open, transparent government to do the work of the people. Your Attorney General is your watchdog on this front. You can count on me to fight for every Wisconsin citizen’s right to vote, without unfair and discriminatory barriers. I have a long record of fighting for every woman’s right to control her own health care decisions. I have fought for civil rights and equality under the law, and I will restore the Department of Justice’s historic role in protecting consumers and preserving Wisconsin’s natural resources.
     
    I hope to earn your vote for Attorney General. Please contact my campaign if you want to join the effort. I look forward to working with you.
     
    Yours,
    Jon Richards
