  • I think they are damn good ideas.
  • It depends. What does he plan on cutting in order to fit this into the budget. In order to put money somewhere, it needs to be taken from somewhere else.
  • Why don't we just let the government pay for everything?, our food, our cars, our gas, our houses, our health care, our phones, our internet, our electricity, our TV's, we won't need an education because nobody needs to work, we'll just let the government take care of it all. Where would they get the money? Good question. What right does the government have to take my money and give it to someone who is not willing to work for it and pay their own way? Why should I work if my money is just going to be taken from me to pay for someone elses needs? The government knows better where and how to spend the money I earn than I do? I HATE liberalism. I hate Socialism. I hate seeing so many people so enthusiastic about the very thing that is undermining my country.
  • Education should be free, but his ideas for spending are pretty radical considering our national debt.
  • The government won't be paying for these things............we will. Where, people, do you imagine the money for such programs is going to come from? The money fairy? The magic money machine? The money tree? The bottomless money well? NO!! It'll come from TAXES paid by US!!!!!! There's no such thing as a free lunch.
  • Sounds great..but then common sense has to rule..How is that possible...its not..but doesnt have to be..just has to sound good..:)
  • Is he planning on reallocating tax dollars or jacking up taxes? These things certainly sound nice but in reality it's either going to cost something anyway...or he is just talking out of his ass in order to get votes.
  • If the government can find money to build useless billion dollar spy satellites. They can find money for College, the smarter Americans are the better America will be.
  • very nice and very very unlikely to come to pass in the way that they have been sold to you.
  • I think these are great ideas. I am unclear on how he is going to pay for the day care centers. However the tax credit of $4,000 a year sounds good for college tax credit. The future is in the education of our children.
  • I find it extremely irritating. I paid for my own college by working. I don't see why I should have to pay for others so they can get a free ride. I have chosen to stay home to care for my daughter. I don't want to pay for others to dump their kids off in daycare so they can have more stuff than I do. Unless he's planning to pay me for caring for my own child, too. In which case, why not just let us all keep our money and not redistribute it back to us. Because they'll find some way to make me pay for others' lives. The money doesn't materialize out of thin air. It comes from the taxpayers. And I'd prefer to pay fewer taxes, not more. I don't WANT them to pay for my college, childcare or healthcare. I want to pay for those things myself so I can control them. I don't need help, and I don't need to finance other people's lives either. Right now, I'm young and in the batch of people who would get more than they give... and I'd prefer to not be given, so that someday I can make it to the batch of people who give more than they get, without having my entire salary be taken away and given to people who are where I am now.
  • These are all horrible socialist ideas. The founding fathers of our country said that we are all entitled to the pursuit of happiness... that said, they sure didn't say the government was going to pay for the people to pursue happiness. Hard work gets you where you need to be... not government handouts. And where does it say "everyone" needs a college degree? Are you kidding? And daycare for my parents? We need to take care of our own families, in our own way and not let the government control everything. All that happens is they take more of our money to fund their nonsense programs. The more the government intervenes, the more things fall apart. It would be nice if it could work out, but it is the truth. Just ask citizens of countries with universal health care. If you get cancer, the government decides what doctor you see, what treatment you get, when you get treatment, etc. NOT A GOOD PLAN! Please convince anyone you know to really look at the issues and what candidates stand for this election. This is our livelihoods and the future of our children at stake. Think long and hard if you want the government to take over your life.
  • I don't know what money he's planning to pay for those things with. Oh wait, I remember.
  • He's a liar
  • You guys couldn't have said it better. I am heavily in debt cause I went to NYU, but I sure am afraid of Obama's radical socialist views. We are giving our country away. The liberals must be stopped Mc Cain Palin all the way!!
  • The daycare might be a stretch, especially since states will pay for daycare if you need it. But high school used to have to be paid for and it eventually became free, so why not college?
  • Just one of many reasons why he's getting my vote.
  • Whatever happened to the idea of working for and paying for something yourself?Obama has no money tree, so funds will have to come out of the working man's wallet.
  • Which translates into more money taken out of the pockets of the already overtaxed and underpaid working class.
  • I fail to see how businesses are supposed to grow when you're taxing them every dime they make.
  • Everybody is not as lucky enough to afford to go to college so I think it would be a great idea. You can work as hard as you want to put yourself though school but still when you end graduating you have a crap load of debt. I am so sick of sudden people (won't say what kind) thinking that somebodies trying to get over on the system cause mommy & daddy have enough to cater to me. Sudden people just don't want to see change in this country but guess what it coming. Don't get me started.
  • well like both parties and the presidents before these candidates it's great to hear about allll these things they plan to do...only 2 problems; 1. Presidents alone don't make these decisions, there's checks and balances and they have to get moved through legislation 2. these things take money to do, where is this money gonna come from when we have an anstronomical national debt and a flailing economy? They come from Taxes usually taxes the middle class pay the brunt of and get the least benefit from.
  • great for me because i'm planning on going to college in the near future
  • I think we are closer to all being sterilized than being given money to pay for college or daycare.
  • I guess this will payed for by taxing the middle class who will soon be unemployed in record numbers? Can't tax big business. Oh wait, the record breaking profits the oil companies are making will be taxed - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
  • i honestly think that obama is a terrorist of some sort. he tries to say everything possible to make people happy and if he says something that a few people disagree with he revokes and appologizes about the comment. i can understand somebody trying to become president, but most people stick to their guns and follow through. hes using the same technique some guys use to get in a girls pants. i know thats not the kind of president that i want. his comments literally sound as if he has somebody off in the distance telling him what to say just so he can become president and be used as a tool. if you think about it, what kind of upper hand would the terrorist have if they have a guy on the inside-let alone the president of the U.S. dont worry im not republican or liberal, im a realist, and right now im hiding with my tail between my legs cause i know, we as the U.S. population, are SCREWED! we have a choice between a half dead guy with an aggressive "hockey mom" for Vp and a guy that, even though he may not be a terrorist, would still be taking on something that is way out of his league with a Vp thats doing it for the status. mccain - bush 3.0 obama - clinton/bush love child. you decide XD
  • This guy is a fraud sucking up for votes. Where in the hell does the money come from. From you, the taxpayer, stolen by the government. Get rid of him and this government.
  • It's just more Nanny state bullsh*t. It's NOT the governments job to pay for our college or our daycare, How do you think he plans on funding this? By taxing us to death of course! If they didn't tax the hell out of us we could afford to send our own kids to college instead of paying tuition for kids we will never meet and pay our own daycare! We can't have that! Obama is a socialist a$$hole!
  • According to Barack Obama, the only way we can get out of this mess is for this country to adapt socialistic values and enforce socialism by gaining control of all three branches of government. I’m sure that the mountain of money his campaign has collected from domestic and foreign donors, names the Obama campaign won’t disclose, will be used for that purpose. As soon as total control is gained, organizations like ACORN will have a green light to further abuse the law to suppress free speech, control the outcomes of elections and brain wash children in schools to believe that socialism is the answer to all of our problems. With total control of the government, and help from people like Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright and Antoin Rezko, who will probably be pardoned, achieving the ultimate goal, “a life of sexual confusion and moral collapse” will become a strong possibility. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjvBEKrGkDI Cybercorrespondent http://cybercorrespondent.blogspot.com
  • Why doesn't the Obamaites understand His tax increase is across the board? including the middle and low income classes.
  • The problem here is that if hes elected he just might get away with it.With Nancy Pelosi,Barney Frank,and Chris Dodd where they are,and the Dems that may very well be elected to both houses this year,the middle class might just disappear totally.
  • Fix healthcare by throwing self-serving politicians out of office Why did Barack Obama attack pharmaceutical companies before and now he has teamed up with them to promote his health care plan? Why are all the tort lawyers big democratic supporters and multi-millionaires? Obama’s true intentions are so obvious that even the left is starting to express concerns. For example, on August 10, CBS Evening News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson filed a report stating that “the White House agreed not to seek price controls on drugs for seniors on Medicare and would not support importing cheaper drugs from Canada.” According to Attkisson, “The pharmaceutical industry is now so firmly in the President's camp it's developing plans to spend up to $150 billion promoting it with TV ads.” According to the acting president of Public Citizen and founder and director of Public Citizen's Health Research Group, Dr. Sidney Wolfe, “An all sort of off the record deal was reached that is very bad for the American public.” Other experts say that for their cooperation, Obama is allowing pharmaceutical companies to charge $50 for a $2 pill and is assuring them that there will be no changes to the laws that make it near impossible for less expensive generic drugs to reach the American market. Unless tort lawyers, the pharmaceutical lobby and other special interest groups like the AMA, ADA and the AARP are dealt with to preserves the Constitution and the free market system, while also protecting the medical provider and consumer, no healthcare plan can work.

  • my opinion is that those working in this country don't make enough money to pay for all of this even if they took 100% of our money and left us with nothing to live on...but hey, we'd have crappy healthcare, daycare even for people that don't have kids and college for people that don't make the grades...
  • Does double recently mean you just heard it or you are about to hear it?
  • Sounds good on the surface, but who is footing the bill? The taxpayer. The government has its responsibilities, but I don't believe that paying for everyone's education and daycare is one of them. Now give me some downrates....
  • I was starting to feel pampered with the 65% income that I get to keep. About time they raised taxes to 50%!
  • George Soros and the progressive democrats he has in his pocket have a goal to destroy the dollar and to push for a global currency. As a result, George Soros would make billions just as he did from his attempt to destroy the British Pound. To accomplish his goal, George Soros and his team of democrats have chosen a messenger who via teleprompter will spread their message and will not oblige to his constitutional obligation to prove that he is a US citizen. To help George Soros push for global dominance, the democrats have created legislations such as the Stimulus Bill, the Equal Pay Bill, the Global Poverty Bill, the Tobacco Bill, the Climate Change Bill, the upcoming Health Reform Bill, the UN sponsored Bill that will force Americans to pay a global tax and whatever else they have hidden in the bills no one has read. If George Soros and the democrats are allowed to succeed, it will bring America to a $2 trillion dollars plus deficit, make the dollar worthless and cause this country to self-distrust. Wake up America before it’s to late. Cybercorrespondent http://cybercorrespondent.blogspot.com
