50. I know what I would like her to do

 

No more deregulation of businesses like was done during the Clinton administration.

I don't want to see her "go after" Wall Street but I would like to see more regulation on market activities that generate money for traders but don't really do anything to help the economy. I'd like to see a stock transaction tax.

I'd like to see her pass legislation and speak in favor of unions because if we have unions then the gov't does not have to take from the rich and give to the poor. The workers can do it themselves.

I would like to see her come out for national sick leave and vacation legislation. Pay double time for any work done on Sunday or an hours over 45 in a week.

I would like to see her propose paid mandatory maternity leave, greater tax credits for children, expanded gov't funds for day care and early childhood education. I want to see her reduce the need of people to have an abortion and remove the economic burdens to having a family.

Basically I would like to see her focus on MAKING WORK PAY for those that work. We are losing the middle class. This article is becoming true:

If she doesn't address the problems in this article then she's not doing what I'd like her to do.


FINALLY, and the thing I am most worried about Clinton over and the reason I voted for Obama is she just seems way to damn hawkish.
You cannot help the less fortunate when you are picking fights and waging war all over the world.
