Change We Wish To See...

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

Change We Wish To See...

Categories

  1. Our nation has been on the trail to socialism for a long time now. Socialism distorts values and encourages waste. Socialism puts money in the hands of those who do not know what to do with it.

    By reversing our trend towards socialism will be a fundamental change and lead us towards true sustainable change and more prosperity.

  3. We can not allow the cascading effect to the manufacturing industry in the US that would result from the failure of the Big 3 auto makers. Now is a time for real leadership which neither President Bush nor the current Democratic Congressional leadership appear willing to accept. Hopefully change implies a willingness to be bold and even temporaily unpopular in the face of the country's current economic crisis. The President elect has indicated support for government measures, but time is critical and if the current administration and Congress will not act now, he should step up to the plate and…

  6. Suspending federal income tax on the working would allow the people of this country to fix the economical problem themselves. So much money is being wasted on a plan that ultimately will fail. Handing those of us who didn't make smart decisions will not fix the problem yet only extend the problem and eventually we will be right back to this place we're in now. Set a time period of suspension, give the people back their money and watch the economy grow.

  7. Please do not continue to provide any bail out assistance to banks such as CHASE that are unwilling to work with customers in need of some help/bailout. Ummm...it is our money (taxpayers) and they are unwilling to share the help with us.

  11. I am South African. In my opinion, one of the big problems of the previous ruling party was a 'disconnect' from the world's voices. More than that, it was the pursuit of an agenda that differs from the people that it serves. This happens here in South Africa as well, so its not unique.

    My suggestion (as outsider affected indirectly) would be to create mechanisms for listening, and tools for responding and feedback. Clear, simple ones... like this one!! This will earn USA the global respect it so richly deserves...

  12. First Principles dictate that the guarantee of Life ranks first among the unalienable Rights clause in the US Declaration of Independence of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". Without honoring life, one can not be in a free and just society.

  13. It's simple:

    • Anyone who already has a mortgage automatically qualifies

    • One package available: 30-year fixed

    • Below-market interest rate, but high enough to be budget-neutral when balanced with the long-term T-bills that would finance the program

    • And the kicker: FULL RECOURSE. I.e., if the borrower defaults the federal government has options beyond foreclosure that allow it to recover the full principal of the loan.

    This plan would increase middle-class cash flow significantly and for the long term; it would stem the tide of foreclosures and soften if not end the housing-price crash; and it would only be available to people who…

  14. Direct upcoming rescue package (approximately $750B) directly to the American people to resolve current credit card and mortgage debt. The govt. should allocate up to $200,000 to each homeowner to help alleviate debt and infuse the economy. Govt can work to ensure specific percentage of funds are used to pay current personal debt providing appropriate oversight. Bottom line...resolve the issue by addressing the root cause.

  15. The world has made strong and sustained progress in reducing extreme poverty, but this is now being undercut by higher prices - particularly of food and oil - and the global economic slowdown, according to the UN’s Millennium Development Goals Report 2008.

  16. China and Japan greatly surpass the United States in funding for stem cell research. This cutting edge science is already showing promise in areas as diverse as limb and organ generation, treatment of chronic diseases such as diabetes, and reconstruction of parts of the human nervous system. It is a tragedy that the United States has fallen behind in this area.

    Dear President Obama
    Does it really take rocket scientist to figure out the downfall of our economy today?

    Do we really need to search any further then the dwindling honesty Americans have lost over the years? We, as American Citizens have deceived ourselves right into the poor house and now we want to blame the Government and expect them to bail us out?

    These are the questions I'd like to see answered-by anyone.

    As a woman I have owned and operated my own service related business for the past 20 years or so. I find that…
