My hope is that both candidates can get down to the truth. Would it not be nice to know that one can depend upon what the candidate is saying is true? I guess it is not possible because they each have to "one up" the other one.
Of course, everyone is interested in the economy. The American people do seem to have forgotten that it did not takes just four years to recuperate from the previous eight years. Partisan politics get in the way of appreciating any progress that has been made regardless of which party a person is a member.
Health care also becomes an important issue despite the fact that Obamacare seems to be working okay. I do not think that Romney's plan willno include pre-existing conditions as he said in the first debate. According to everything read, his plan does not. This is an important issue.
For the seniors citizens [I am one.], social security and medicare are a prime issue, It needs to be left alone or enhanced, but not reduced. In today's economy, for those people who are unable to work any longer or who are single and just barely making it...anything less would be devastating. Do not mess with these programs!
Education must be taken care of. If left to the states, I do not know what will happen. My state does not take care of educaation as it is...I am not sure what would happen if the federal subsidies were not there.
Job availability is important.In a recent poll, 2000 women were asked to list in order the problems that they were concerned about with regard to electing a president. This is the results of the poll:
Schools, health, insurance, war, jobs, medical issues, education, peace, crime, healthcare, abortion, deficit, poverty, globalwarming, elections
These women were exactly right. The future lies in the education of the young. The health of the nation must also come next. My main concern is that we do not take steps backwards in anyway.
