The build up that has been mounting all week finally blasted out of the arena last night when President Obama proudly proclaimed “Madam Chairwoman, delegates, I accept your nomination for President of the United States.” As the rest of the speakers have proclaimed all week, President Obama reiterated, the shift of the party’s focus to re-build the middle class. President Obama unveiled several key features of his plan for the future that will help accomplish this goal. The first is revamping the tax code and make those earning over two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year pay more and bring their tax percentage back to that when President Clinton was in office. This would generate revenue and allow for more opportunities to assist the middle class in opportunities to prosper. These opportunities include lower cost of college tuition, assisting in education expenses, and rewarding companies that keep jobs in America. The second idea that President Obama acknowledged that would help get the middle class growing again is investing in infrastructure. Recently, the American infrastructure was given a D overall. They found that the nations bridges, roads, railroads, electrical grid, and schools were crumbling. Infrastructure is a cause that both FDR and Eisenhower championed, their efforts helped create the highway system across the nation and furthered the economic boom of the 1950’s. If the country can re-invest in roads, bridges, new railroads, electrical grids, and schools then the country can once again become the envy of the world. One issue that needs to be pushed to the forefront of the campaign is the Super PAC problem. This seems to be taking away the voice of the middle class since large corporations are able to donate large sums to Super PAC’s to assure that their particular candidate wins. This leads to the candidate pandering to the wealthy to fund their campaigns rather than pandering to the voters for support. If taxes, infrastructure and campaign financing are revisited, then there is no doubt that the middle class will once again become the backbone of America.
