What does it say about our society If we can't even sacrifice a bit to see more of our innocent children get the health care that they need and deserve? If John McCain doesn't even support taking better care of our children then how do you think he is going to help adults and seniors? McCain's health care plan basically says, "Don't get sick."
John McCain is out of step on health care with a large majority of Americans, 72% of people polled approved the renewal of S-CHIP while only 25% opposed it. There is an education impact here as well. How can we expect many of our children to improve their education scores if they are constantly sick and out of school because of not having adequate health care? If the children are our future then Barack Obama is clearly the best candidate to take our kids into a better future than we saw. He is the candidate with the vision to see what needs to be done to renew America to give optimum opportunities for our youngest citizens.
He is the candidate of change who is pushing the creation and increased growth incentives for "green collar" jobs so that our kids in places like Michigan have more choices for job employment as they enter the work force. Think how much faster we could build these type of companies and how much more people we could employ if we used some of the Iraq war money to help the green economy grow.
I have seen the potential and success of the green economy first hand with my wife working for a green company. They are growing quickly and can't hire people fast enough and the same goes for two other major green companies that have come to the area. People are applying for these jobs in droves so the demand is there.
John McCain maybe a little "greener" than many conservatives but he's not taking the bold, decisive and progressive steps toward a major shift in our economy toward green jobs like Barack. It's a win-win that Obama is talking about all across the country, we gain more jobs and bring down fuel costs. As well as help reduce the effects of global warming. John McCain has nothing on Obama in regards to the environment with "Mr. Environment" and Nobel Prize winner Al Gore on Barack's side to name yet another advantage for Obama. An advantage that ultimately is about the American people.
John McCain is not the candidate of the future but rather the president of "stay the course" and we all know where that path has taken us and our kids.
