When governor Romney and his allies in Congress tell us us we can somehow lower our deficit by spending trillions more on new tax breaks for the wealthy, well you do the math. I refuse to go along with that. I refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions." I'll bet these promises have appeared in every speech of political parties since the 1970's. Research show, people are being layed off jobs, economy is bad, taxes and deficits, college funds, so on and so forth. In his speech, Obama stated "I don’t believe that another round of tax breaks for millionaires will bring good jobs to our shores, or pay down our deficit. I don’t believe that firing teachers or kicking students off financial aid will grow the economy." But why not? Of course the economy is horrible. What does he believe in? One speech he will state how cutting taxes won't bring jobs back, yet in another speech he will talk about tax reductions. Another thing that upset me was he's promising America a better life, big changes, but life keeps getting more difficult day by day. When is he planning on making the changes? He says years from now, but why not start right now? He believes education is the "gateway" to life, it was for Michelle. But I don't understand, why does he have the mentality he has? If he thinks "cutting financial aid and firing professors won't bring back jobs and a good life," then what's the point on putting education as a priority. That's the part that confused me. Overall, the speech was interesting. There were pinpoints he put out there that had the crowd applauding. Some faces were amazed and some sat there with no reaction. If I were to be present, I'd probably have my "confused face on". I'm looking forward to the next couple of years. Let's see what the greatest President really will change. Is it just a promised speech, or is it really time for a change?
