Change We Wish To See...

What should be at the top of Obama’s agenda for change?

Change We Wish To See...

  1. Not everyone can be the best teacher, but we can try to document the best teachers in the country and allow students the opportunity to telecommute to any of their lessons.

    The Videos can be an award for outstanding teachers and we can give those teachers a huge national award, say for the best lesson on simple addition, multiplication, the Gettysburg address, etc... This library of videos and knowledge can then be used to either help train other teachers, or for students directly. Universities like MIT and Standford are experimenting with ideas like these by putting their coursework online, but…

  2. This pristine part of our country has been threatened by this administration and members of Congress throughout this administration. We must once and for all provide it with the protection it deserves.

  3. Has allowing citizens say 55+ years old withdraw up to perhaps $250,000 from their IRAs or other shelters with no tax penalty been considered as a remedy for stimulating the economy. Many would pay off their mortgages, purchase new residence, etc. thus putting money back in to the economy.

  4. A new system of highways would SAVE LIVES (about 41,000 a year), allow for goods and services to get to market faster, and allow for electric cars as the view of the car as a status symbol diminished. You would just get in the next car some day because you rent time. Current technologies for self driving cars require them to interact with people driven cars, but a infrastructure where only computer driven cars were allowed would allow the cars to communicate with "ground traffic control" and each other.

    This would help the automotive industry, where people would want to…

  5. Something needs to be done so that our broadcast media is not simply platforms for advertising, but rather a source of information and news. It may be time to re-regulate the media industry so that five or six companies no longer control our televisions, newpapers and our radio.

  7. By replacing the 650,000 vehicle government fleet with hybrid vehicles, we put GM employees to work, save $500M per year in fuel costs and can refit the old GOV's to be hybrid and give them to the states.
    Congress should OK the bailout to do this.

  10. I'm astonished it is even being considered?! The system is already stressed, I am 20yrs away from receiving it yet the majority of my taxes get paid into this fund I wll never see a return on and now you want to give it to people that did not contribute, does not respect our country enough to take it as its first country and are here against the law.

  11. Paying taxes isn't optional, and neither is jury duty. There are many civic duties in a democracy and voting should surely be the most important.

  14. One of the worst side effects of a nasty campaign is the disillusioned voters that didn't win. Important sections of the community are actually scared that Obama will be President. I think most of this is caused by all the reaches the Republican part had to make in order to stay in the race at all. Negative ads, rumors, etc.

    So, tell these good people that you're not going to take all their money and give it to people who don't want to work and want to live off of the government. Tell them that their 2nd Amendment rights are…

  15. We cannot continue to believe that we have an endless supply of funding for all of the things we try to do. The national debt is not just a number, it represents the reality that our leaders and we as a nation are not at all financially responsible. We have a few options - raise taxes, do less, or actually reform the budget to cut down on the rampant misappropriation of the money we do have.

  16. If you don't get your Health Insurance from your employer, you pay in post-tax funds. If you do, it's pre-tax.

    A simple way to help people out would be to make all insurance and medical expenses to be deductible from your gross income regardless of whether it's self-insured or employer-insured.

  18. Time had an article in their January issue on all the things you could do with a trillion dollars. They indicated that if the amount were divided among the population of the US that EVERY man woman and child would recieve approx $3500 each. I think a better idea would be to divide that amount between all the people who actually file income tax. The amount would be substantial and the govt could take tax out of that money. People could pay their own mortgages and bills and i believe this would do more to stimulate the economy.

  19. Currently Health insurance billing is really messed up and in a number of cases health insurance companies reject bills from health care providers for a number of silly reasons like punctuation, etc... We need to standardize the medical billing industry and bills that pass the standard, will be required to be payed. The web has complex validation software for things like CSS, XHTML, HTML 4.01 transitional, argh, well its complicated. There is no reason that a validation engine for medical bills could not be built and maintained by the government.

  20. The automated payment tax (APTtax.com) is a tax program that puts the burden of taxes on banks and payment authorities. The idea is simple, whenever you transfer fund between any two accounts, there is a 0.3% tax. The tax can be so low because there are so many transactions. The best part is that people who make money from money are usually taxed more heavily, while people that work for it are taxed less. If you want to read more about the Automated Payment Tax please visit apttax.com.
