I’m 27 and I’ve been a registered Republican voter since I was first eligible to vote. (Should I admit that on a blog for a Democratic president? Oh well.) But come November, I’m voting Obama. Here’s why:
Student loan debt. I have it. A lot of it. Obama has actively pushed legislation that offers real solutions to ease this burden. “Go ask your parents to borrow money” is not even close to being a real solution.
Education. I’m going to a teacher, and Obama wants to help make sure I have better odds of finding and keeping a job. Jobs kind of come in handy when you have to pay back student loans.
Health care. I’ve gone without it for years at a time. It’s meant paying hundreds of dollars to fill just one prescription for things like an asthma inhaler. While Romney seems to think I can afford this, Obama recognizes I cannot. Heck yeah, Obamacare!
Bottom line, I feel like President Obama has my back. So come November, I’ll have his back in the voting booth.
