The President visits my hometown today and I’m sure I’ll get a chance to see the motorcade while at work. President Obama will be speaking at Benedict College around midtown Columbia. I hope the President addresses issues such as South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley reluctance to accept Medicaid funding to help South Carolinians who qualify under the affordable care act and restructuring student loan obligations such as attending 2yr colleges for free.
I haven’t seen the President in Columbia since the eve of the South Carolina democratic primary in February 2008. I just hope the President continues to advocate for the affordable care act, energy independence, and strengthening the American economy for good jobs.
