• Margaret: “It’s up to us”

    “I’m a Republican, but I support President Obama,” explains Margaret, a retired customer services representative from Pennsylvania.

    “I can’t in good conscience vote for Mitt Romney. If he wins, he’ll send us back to failed Republican policies of years past. President Obama, on the other hand, is finally getting us out of the mess that resulted from huge tax cuts for the rich and massive deregulation, and I believe that more change is coming. He wants to keep middle class taxes low, he fought for health care, and he's the President who finally brought Osama bin Laden to justice.

    “It’s not only his policy decisions that make me believe in him, but his values and his background. He’s a good man. You can tell how much he cares about core American values like family and faith.

    “It’s up to us to make sure that he gets a second term. If you want change, you have to work for it and pitch in—you have to donate.”

    Margaret is one of more than 4 million people who have already pitched in—will you?
