As people head to the polls...

Some people, like my family, with PEC will be thinking how they finally can get affordable healthcare, hundreds of thousands of people who've never had health care before can now enroll.

Some will be driving to the polls in cars they could afford thanks to Cash for Clunkers.

Some might go to the poll after a day of work on a job that was created by the Recovery Act.

Others might go to the polls on road that was rebuilt by the Recovery Act and will pass a Recovery Project Sign as they go to vote.

Still more might use their local school as a polling center, a school that was recently expanded and improved by Recovery Act money.

Some will lock the doors on the new homes they bought with the Homebuyer's Assistance Program as they leave to go to the polls.

On the other hand...

They might remember how Republicans tried to kill the HCR bill and how we could have had an even better bill if they didn't work to kill it.

They'll recall how Minority Leader of the Republicans, Boehner said the recovery act was like trying to use "a Nuclear weapon to kill an ant".

Or they'll remember Rush saying the poor and unemployed can go Dumpster Diving for food, and that life for the poor was not that bad.

Or they'll remember Boehner saying again that we should raise the age for receiving Social Security to 70.

Or that not a single Republican voted for the Recovery Act, HCR, Cash for Clunkers or the Homebuyer's program.

Yes, people will have a lot on their mind this fall when they go to vote.
