Election Day is just 100 days away, and it’s going to take every single person to make a difference in this election. It could come down to just a few votes in a single state, and even one conversation could make the difference between moving forward with President Obama and falling backward with Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney has been deliberately twisting President Obama’s words around to falsely suggest that the President doesn’t value small businesses or the entrepreneurial spirit that built this country. His distortions and accusations are flat-out wrong.

Today the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is constitutional. The individual mandate was upheld, along with all the reforms that ensure Americans, not their insurance companies, have control over their health. By 2014, all Americans will have access to quality, affordable health care.

The Obama campaign released a video, titled “Forward,” which will be played at the President’s campaign rallies. The video outlines the challenges America faced as President Obama took office, and the progress we’ve made toward a strong middle class and an economy built to last – where hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone does their fair share and plays by the same rules.

Today Mitt Romney is campaigning in Virginia, once again attacking the President and distorting his energy record. While President Obama is helping families save at the pump with his all-of-the-above energy strategy, Mitt Romney and his Big Oil allies continue to attack his plan, fighting to keep their tax breaks and block alternative fuels.

Mitt Romney is campaigning in Virginia with supporter Governor Bob McDonnell and Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, who just endorsed Romney. Romney and McDonnell want to turn back the clock on women’s health, winning the support of Tea Party standard-bearer Michelle Bachmann.

As Mitt Romney campaigns with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell today, the Obama campaign released “The Life of Julia,” an online interactive tool that highlights the decision women face in this election. It tracks how President Obama and Mitt Romney’s policies will affect Julia, a typical middle-class woman, at each step in her life: from early childhood, through her school years, until she has a child of her own, starts a business and retires.

Today’s analysis confirms that the House Republican tax plan would, like Mitt Romney’s tax plan, benefit the wealthiest and hurt the middle class. The House Republican tax plan would give millionaires a huge tax break while raising taxes on families making less than $200,000. An expert from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center said it would shift “the burden of the tax code toward the middle class.”

Businesses created jobs for the 26th straight month in April, with President Obama continuing to lead a recovery for the middle class after inheriting the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

Nationwide student-loan debt, which already outpaces credit card debt, is estimated to hit $1 trillion today. The U.S. Senate voted today on whether federal student-loan interest rates should double on July 1, which would cost more than 7 million students an extra $1,000. It was blocked by a minority of Republican senators who object to closing business tax loopholes.
