What does the President do for me?

What does the President do for me? When I say President I mean government. He doens't make all the decisions, but he's definately the face of the country so that is why I will say. "What does the President do for me?"

Increase or decrease in taxes? Sure, I don't really notice. Increase or decrease gov't spending? Fine, I don't really notice. Raise minimum wage? I didn't notice. Provided benefits for the less fortunate, welfare, medicaid? That's great, I didn't really notice. Protect me from terrorists? Awesome, I didn't really notice.  Save for my future, Social Security and Medicare? Will I even notice?

Here is what I do notice. I know we have soldier oversees in places I don't feel we need them to be. I know Bills, influenced by Billion dollar corporations, are being written that if passed into law would take away some of my personal freedoms. I know I pay way to much in fuel and energy bills. And I know I have a lot of educational bills to pay off.

I know there is a lot more that the governemnt does, but for most of those thing I still don't really notice.

So to whom it may concern, if you want my vote, do something to lower my energy and gas bills, reduce the influence of Big Business on law making (I think this is lobbying, I'll have to do some research), make it so people don't have to pay so much for college and bring our soldiers home.

P. S.  Thanks for the grants you provided to help me pay for some of my college already, I just wish it could have been a little more.
