Democrat candidate Barack Obama has been elected as the United States first black president following his historic win over his Republican rival John McCain.
My hats are off for the American people who have truely United beyond race and religion. I envy the quality the Americans have potrayed. I pray hard that Malaysia will someday see such changes taking place aswell.
Barack Hussein Obama II, man of the century. Truely amazing beyond words, i hope so see the change he had promised, not only to the Americans but to the whole world at large.
The following is apart of the promises he has made to the American people:
This is his promise in regards to the American health care which in my opinion depicts that liberal health care has failed the American people.
Barack Obama will make health insurance affordable and accessible to all:
The Obama-Biden plan provides affordable, accessible health care for all Americans, builds on the existing healthcare system, and uses existing providers, doctors and plans to implement the plan.
Obama will lower health care costs:
The Obama plan will lower health care costs by $2,500 for a typical family by investing in health information technology, prevention and care coordination.
Promote public health:
Obama and Biden will require coverage of preventive services, including cancer screenings, and will increase state and local preparedness for terrorist attacks and natural disasters
In regards to the war in Iraq :
Barack Obama will responsibly end the war in Iraq:
Immediately upon taking office, Obama will give his Secretary of Defense and military commanders a new mission in Iraq: successfully ending the war. The removal of our troops will be responsible and phased.
Encourage political accommodation:
Obama and Biden will press Iraq’s leaders to take responsibility for their future and to substantially spend their oil revenues on their own reconstruction.
Increase stability in Iraq and the region:
Obama and Biden will launch an aggressive diplomatic effort to reach a comprehensive compact on the stability of Iraq and the region. They also will address Iraq’s refugee crisis.
This is in reagards of education for the American people:
Barack Obama will reform No Child Left Behind:
Obama and Biden believe teachers should not be forced to spend the academic year preparing students to fill in bubbles on standardized tests and he will improve the assessments used to track student progress to measure readiness for college.
Invest in early childhood education:
The Obama-Biden comprehensive “Zero to Five” plan will provide critical support to young children and their parents. And they will help states move toward voluntary, universal pre-school.
Make college affordable to all Americans:
Obama and Biden will create a new American Opportunity Tax Credit worth $4,000 in exchange for community service. It will cover two-thirds the cost of tuition at the average public college or university and make community college tuition completely free for most students.
Personally i find Obama’s promise addressing the problems that was caused by liberal conservative ideas of capitalism and free market. With such changes, i believe America will achieve new heights. I am excited together with the American people on his election and hope to see postive changes in America that would benefit the poor and needy. Hopefully his policies would influence other countries in rebuilding their economy. I also hope that Obama will revive the US economy, too many other nations are dependant on it, the US economy must should not stay in recesion for too long or else the whole world would feel the pain aswell.
