Education- McCain voted for the No Child Left Behind Act. NCLB requires certain schools to achieve certain test standards, before receiving federal dollars. McCain also thinks that schools should compete for students, just as businesses compete for costumers.

Obama wants to reform the NCLB act. He would also like to award high achieving teachers. Obama would like kids to start learning from kindergarten to college. He also wants student to start studying harder, and taking their work seriously. Last, he wants to spend more money on schools.

Response- I think that it is very nice that McCain voted for the NCLB Act. I also think that it is very nice to award high achieving teachers.


War in Iraq- McCain voted in favor of using military force in Iraq. He thinks the war hasn’t been handled very well. McCain said the United States didn’t send enough troops, (people) to do the job right around the year 2003. Iraq’s neighbors are causing war and trouble. He said Iraq’s neighbors are sending weapons to the insurgents.

Obama opposed the 2003 military invasion of Iraq. He spoke against the war since the beginning. He also voted for war spending bill that would have withdrawn most U.S. troops from Iraq.

Response- I would not want to be in Iraq because Iraq’s neighbors are making trouble and war. I think Obama was very brave to speak against the war from the beginning.


Healthcare- McCain wants to reform healthcare, and make it more affordable for individuals and families. McCain will also allow people to take their healthcare plans to their other jobs if they move jobs.

Obama would create a national health insurance program that would cover uninsured individuals. It would require all children to be covered, and all people under the age of 25 will be covered with their parent’s heath plan.

Response- I think it was so nice that McCain will make healthcare more affordable. I also think it is so caring that Obama wants to cover ALL kids.


I don’t really know who I would vote for, but I would probably put more percentage on Obama because he is making good decisions, and he is young. But they are both making great decisions. But it really makes you think. I would want our president to make stuff more affordable.
