• A Catholic’s Support for Our President

    Dianne is a licensed independent social worker living in Taos... and a devout Catholic. She is standing up for the President because Barack Obama stands up for what she believes in:

    "Listening to the Living Word in Mass has been a place of solace for me. I try to do my best to let my decisions be guided by the words and actions of Jesus Christ. As a woman who loves and cherishes her Catholic faith, I voted and am volunteering for President Barack Obama. In my heart I know it is the right and just thing to do for our country.

    In the past four years, President Obama has demonstrated steadfast leadership with strong values. Values that resonate with me and my faith: compassion, commitment and courage, to name a few.

    These values have been evident in the important objective of the Obama administration to support women and families. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, financial support to organizations that serve pregnant women, enhancing the Adoption Tax Credit and protecting safety net programs. Not to mention, with perseverance, the President signed a health care law that will allow millions more Americans to obtain affordable health insurance and free preventive care, such as cancer screenings, that lead to wellness and empower individuals to make healthier decisions.

    Our President is committed to the American people. He has courageously led the way in rebuilding our country from when he took office four years ago, as seen in the creation of millions of new private-sector jobs and providing tax cuts for working families and small businesses.

    Barack Obama is a President for all Americans. This is evident in the laws he has signed and policies he has put in place such as strengthening Medicare and Medicaid for seniors and people with disabilities, giving children of undocumented immigrants the opportunity to pursue their dreams without fear of deportation, allowing LGBT Americans to serve openly in the armed services and helping women receive equal pay for equal work.

    I am not supporting President Obama despite my faith. I am supporting President Obama BECAUSE of my faith."
