• “A Special Message from Barack”

    On January 2nd, 2008, the eve of the Iowa caucus, the Obama campaign released this video. It’s a message from candidate Obama to caucus-goers, setting out what he’d do if elected President:

    “…fix health care, make college affordable, become energy independent, and end this war.”

    Four years later, here’s what we’ve accomplished:

    • Reformed our health care system by introducing the Affordable Care Act, making sure that millions more Americans will have access to good, affordable health care.

    • Made college more affordable by doubling funding for Pell Grants and introducing student loan reform.

    • Made progress toward energy independence by increasing domestic oil and gas production, introducing historic fuel efficiency standards, and doubling funding for clean energy.

    • Ended the war in Iraq.

    Tomorrow, voters in Iowa will go to the caucus again to support President Obama. Join them by saying you’re in for 2012.
