"Let it be said by our children's children that ...with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."
President Barack Obama
"'I'm a Christian by choice...also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we allhave to have as human beings, that we're sinful and we're flawed and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God" President Barack Obama, 9/28/10
Well there's been alot of debate about this question, but here are a few highlights for now...
- The first bill signed into law by President Obama was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, relaxing the statute of limitations for equal-pay lawsuits. Five days later, he signed the reauthorization of the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to cover an additional 4 million children currently uninsured. President Obama has appointed two women to serve on the Supreme Court in the first two years of his Presidency - Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
- In the first quarter of 2010, the U.S. economy expanded at a 2.7% pace after growing at its fastest rate in six years in the fourth quarter, 5.7%. In July 2010, the Federal Reserve expressed that although economic activity continued to increase, its pace had slowed and its Chairman, Ben Bernanke, stated that the economic outlook was "unusually uncertain."
- Stay tuned for more to come tomorrow...
