Every candidate makes these promises. I want to see a plan. What do you mean by build the middle class?. Taxing the rich is a joke. His plan is to increase tax for anyone who grosses over $250,000. That is more than half the small business owners, the "middle class." How is he going to build the military? Drafting again?
College is affordable for many people. You just have to face the facts that you take out college loans and pay them back when you have a job after graduation. Should we just GIVE money to them to pay for college or make them earn it and appreciate it more.
Healthcare is a joke here. The insurance companies run healthcare. We need more people off medicare/madicade and get real jobs and pay for healthcare themselves. Wanna fix healthcare, fix insurance companies...then again you can't when the lobbiests and politicians are in the ins co pockets. I really don't think that Obama can do that.
