I was reading on yahoo today about a proposal by McCain that congress needs to get rid of the gas tax for summer and make sure that students can get loans next year. This effects me a lot as I’m a student who has to drive 2 hours to school when I have class. The worst part is most of my classes are at night and on different days. I also take online classes to keep from having to drive.
I think this would be a great idea even if they were to cut the taxes in half it would help many people who have to drive a long distance. I also think making sure that student can get loans is a big deal as many who have them need them to continue in school. I am one of those, if I can’t get a loan I don’t go and then I have to start paying back the loans I have, with no job because I haven’t finished my degree. I know many students are in the same place I am, hopefully something will be done to help us all.
This is one reason I’m an independent voter, sometime candidates come up with some great ideas, but they are from a party you don’t normally vote for, being an independent I don’t’ feel ties with any one party. It’s nice, but I’m still not changing over just yet. I still disagree with the war, but I have gone from liking Hillary more, to liking Obama a lot more. I think he could be a president that can fix the image of the US and bring the country back together. I also like how he speaks, he does it well. Hillary does too, but I noticed the other day I had to turn off the TV when they interviewed Bush because I can’t stand to listen to him. He does not sound like he knows what he’s talking about, even if he does. I have the same problem with teachers sometimes. If they don’t sound right I don’t want to listen.
Anyway back to gas prices. What do you think about getting rid of the gas tax from memorial day to labor day?
