    The big ones for me are health care reform, ending don't ask don't tell, officially outlawing torture, and ending Iraq war combat.

    The Health Care Reform Act will likely be turned down at the Supreme Court level, It is not "reform" by the way, it is a whole new game. Officially outlawing "torture" will cheer those who would do harm to the United States, and all the democracies. The Iraqi war is not over, and thousands of Americans may have died, or been seriously injured, in vain.

    Im all for Gays in the military and that sex should never be an issue.

    I'll provide some lists below, there have been 159 promises kept just in the first 3 years. I'll mention a few of the promises that meant the most to me:

    Ending the Iraq war and withdrawing our troops. McCain had stated he was fine with keeping them there 50, even 100 years as we did in Japan and Korea.

    Ended the practice of torture.

    Made the first step to transition to UHC with the historic health care reform.

    Financial Regulation (although more is needed yet)

    Middle class tax cut

    Increased CAFE standards for cars and trucks

    Reduce CO2 pollution

    Historical funding of alternative and nuclear energy

    Reduced unemployment

    Repeal of DADT

    Here are some more:

    Now, what promises has the GOP leadership in Congress kept???

    Membership increased back to 60 on the swearing-in of Paul G. Kirk, the designated interim replacement for Ted Kennedy, on September 24 till February 4, 2010 133 days

    183 days equals one month??? How does that math work?

    He also promised to kill jobs. You forgot that promise.
