Congratulations to President Obama on being elected to his second term as President of the United States. Now that the election is over, you may wonder what all of the fuss was about. Here is a breakdown of what both candidates were promising if elected to be POTUS (President of the United States). If you could have voted for President, who would you have choose?

Invest in education, small businesses, clean energy, infrastructure, and tax cuts for companies that bring jobs back to the U.S.
Cut taxes for the typical middle class family.
Develop every available source of American-made energy—including oil, gas, clean coal, wind, solar, biofuels, nuclear - and take steps to protect our climate.
Cut college tuition costs and make financial help available to more students.
Improve Medicare to help more senior citizens get medical care.
Help immigrants who want to become citizens.
