Presidential hopefuls, McCain and Obama, battled wits and policies in the final debate. Many are saying that this debate was very viscious and personal. After the debate ended last night, many news correspondants and professionals had a difficult time trying to decide who won. Let me clarify a few things. There were several tough questions to be answered by each candidate. Obama and McCain have different plans for healthcare reform. Barack talked about his plan to offer healthcare at a reduced rate and to fine large businesses that do not offer healthcare to their employees. John McCain’s plan is to offer a credit of $5,000, in order for Americans to choose their own plans. Unfortunately for McCain, Barack’s plan seems a little more reasonable. Healthcare costs much more than $5,000 in the U.S. This would only cause Americans to fall short. Insted of McCain taking the time to speak in depth about his plan he decided it would be best to ask Obama how much the fine would be. McCain also mentioned “Joe the Plumber” over twenty times in the debate. “Joe the Plumber” took up a large chunk of debate time, time McCain could have used more wisely. McCain also tried to call Obama a pro-abortionist. Obama shot back saying that he believes the Roe V. Wade decision is to help women and that there should be more preventitive maintainance and adoption options open to young women. McCain seemed eager to try and stump Barack Obama. McCain used a militaristic approach on Obama, but Obama stood strong and composed. And the smirk on McCain’s face is a whole nother blog entry in it’s entirety. Barack seemed to close the deal for presidency with this debate. Now it lies in the hands of the voters…yes I know, SCARY! Let me know what you think!
