With the endless speeches, exhaustive punditry and partisan cat fights, it’s easy to lose focus on what the candidates are saying about financial security and health care reform. Here’s a brief snippet of some comments recently made by Senators McCain and Obama on two subjects near and dear to our hearts at Shaarpsession…
McCain: “We want a system of health care in which everyone can afford and acquire.”
Obama: “I’ve put forward a series of proposals that will foster economic growth.”
McCain: …To keep families in their homes and businesses growing…
Obama: We can’t wait to fix our health care system
McCain: We will replace…
Obama: We are going to invest…
McCain: We are approaching…
Obama: We have the chance to solve problems that we’ve been talking about year, after year, after year, after year…
The real question we have here at Shaarpsession is this: Is all this going to turn out to be same old empty campaign rhetoric, or do we finally have two candidates who will work to enact real change?
Call, write, email, text, tap into your latest Jedi mind tricks, but most of all, GET INVOLVED and let these folks know that the time for talk is over. What we need is action.
