37. So many homeless and pathetic health care. We are ready for the change
now Mr. President. (1)Subsidized Housing (2) Universal Healthcare (3) Jobs (4) Education (5) Infrastructure

In order to do this, cut defense. Raise taxes on those earning more than 250K/yr. No more tax subsidies for sending jobs abroad.

There is much more but if he can get started on the above we will see vast improvement.
