I am doing the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. President Barack Obama is running for the Democratic Party and Governor Mitt Romney is running for the Republican Party. Currently President Barack Obama is holding the position of “President” and Governor Mitt Romney is running for President. President Barack Obama went to the University of Harvard and he won the Presidential Election in 2008. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and he was the first African-American to hold the office of President. Governor Mitt Romney was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts. Mitt Romney spent 30 months in a Mormon Missionary and he is a successful business man as well as a politician.
Taxes- Obama wanted to continue his tax plan which helped 98% of the american people but Mitt Romney says to not add any tax cuts.
Health Care- Obama wants to keep his Obamacare while Romney want to repeal it and allow families family plans.
Social Security- Obama plans to lower costs on Medicare and to get rid of overpaying insurance companies. Romney wants people to have a voucher and buy their own medicare, also he wants them to be allowed to choose which program or plan they want to get into.
