The latest big win for the President helps college students with their loan debt and provides funds for higway construction jobs for Americans!The Bill is another effort by President Obama to help college students and put people to work across the states in highway construction jobs.
Why then, is it so hard for
people to support jobs and education Bills this President presents? Some elected officials are angry about the plan
to keep interest rates on education loans low on students while in school. Others are mad the transportation part of the
Bill didn't have more money set aside for infrastructure work - but it would
mean raising gas-related taxes which no one wants to do. But, many know it is necessary to raise taxes
in some areas in order to put Americans back to work on projects the county
needs. And rest assured, if the Bill
would not have passed, many would be complaining the President did too little
and did not lead.
Well, give the President credit
for leading when he does get something passed with this grid-locked
Congress. Congratulations Mr. President
on this Bill and The Affordable Health Care Act being sustained by the Supreme
Court. It was the President's knowledge
of Constitutional Law that made sure the "Tax Clause" argument was the
secondary rational cited in the government brief in defense of the Act. He knew the opposition would only focus on
the first defense stated in the brief - the Commerce Clause - and he was
right. He out-foxed the others
AGAIN. He knew the High Court would
review the secondary defense if it found the first one to be insufficient and
that's exactly what happened. A true
leader always has a fallback position!
You go Mr. President!
Let's Do it Again - RE-Elect President Obama!
