Pork Bills

John McCain votes against lots of bad things. One thing he wants to vote against is a pork bill. A pork bill benefits only a little bit of people but everyone has to pay for it. It started in 1817 when the bonus bill was made to build a highway linking the East and South of the United States to its Western frontier. And they still do it. The congress recently spent $2 million to put sand on the beach at Topsail Beach. Another time they spent $50,000 for the sesquicentennial celebration in Morehead City.

When McCain is president we will no longer have to worry about pork bills. Personally I think pork bills are wrong and therefore should be banned. I bet McCain feels the same way.

John McCain

I just read this about John McCain.

It says the he might have picked a Vice President.
McCain kicked off his day with a tour of a General Electric Co. plant, followed by a town hall meeting with workers.

A GE employee asked McCain what his plans would be for his first 90 days in office.

"Call Tom Ridge to Washington from whatever vacation he is taking and get him to work," McCain answered, to much applause.

So I don't know if it is for sure, but maybe he picked him. It sounds kind of like that. I will have to go read about him for a little bit now. Oh and I'm going to do another video about John McCain!!!!

John McCain likes families

Remember when I told you John McCain liked families a lot? Well it's really true. And not just cause he has more kids than that other guy either. John McCain likes families and wants to do things to help them.

This is from his website. I'm still looking at his site. But this is what he says about helping families:

He will help Americans hurting from high prices.
He believes we should send a strong message to world markets that we will be using less of their stuff and more of our own so they should prepare for it. It's nice of him to warn them about that so they can get ready for it to happen.
His work will make the dollar worth more. It will still be a dollar but when other people in other places want to exchange it for their money, it will take more of their money to trade.

This will make American's money last long and worth more. That means they can buy more stuff for less money again. Which is really good.

It's like if you had 1 dollar now, you could only buy one piece of candy maybe a Hersheys bar or whatever you like. But with his plan that dollar could buy you more stuff probably two Hersheys bars. Families need that cause it takes a lot of dollars to buy everything they need and it would be nice to get more.

Economy by John McCain

So I was reading John McCain's website and I seen a very good video on there. You can watch the video here.

It's called Jobs for America

And it is about what John McCain to change about the economy. You should watch it. But if you go lower on the page you can learn about taxes and what he wants to do with them.

A little I learned is that : He wants to keep taxes low, ban internet taxes, ban cell phone taxes and allow business to have deductions on equipment and technology that workers use for the first year. This means they will want to buy more stuff and that gives workers better ways of doing their jobs.

This is what he says about keeping taxes low:

Entrepreneurs are at the heart of American innovation, growth and prosperity.
Entrepreneurs create the ultimate job security - a new, better opportunity if
your current job goes away. Entrepreneurs should not be taxed into submission.
John McCain will keep the top tax rate at 35 percent, maintain the 15 percent
rates on dividends and capital gains, and phase-out the Alternative Minimum Tax.
Small businesses are the heart of job growth; raising taxes on them hurts every

That's really good from him.

You should go look at the whole thing and read it yourself.

Stuff about John McCain

I watched this video about John McCain.

It's good that he was in a war a long time ago because we are in a war now and we need someone who knows something about it. I feel bad that he was held up over there but I think that makes him care more about the soldiers we have in Iraq now cause he doesn't want anyone to have to go through that like he did.

I don't think Obama was in a war ever. I looked for something that said he was but I gave up cause I just found other stuff. But I think that if he had been, he'd probably do a commerical about it or something. I haven't seen any and I watch a lot of commericals . I don't think he was even a soldier either. That's not good. The best thing is serving your country, and he probably didn't do it. So he shouldn't get to be President now. John McCain loved the USA so much he was a soldier. Obama didn't. Maybe he loves the country now, but he's still not a soldier. Maybe he should go be a soldier and then try later to be a President. But I guess he might be too old to do that now cause all the soldiers are sort of younger than Obama and he might not be able to run as fast as they do. That wouldn't be good. So maybe he should just do something else. But not be President. Cause I want John McCain to be President.

And I like this video too. It is about how Obama doesn't support things that are good for jobs and how he tries to raise taxes and how it all hurts families because the economy isn't good when you do that. John McCain loves families and kids and so he tries to do things that will help all families. I think he has like four kids. That's more than Obama. So he must like kids more too.
