Question 1 of 5

He’s concerned about the economic stimulus package and the “frickin'” war. He wants to stimulate the social security program instead.

Obama picks it up. The war is too expensive at 9 to 10 billion a month.

He picks his first baby out of the crowd and claims she was handed a birth tax to fund the war.

He also says social security is not in crisis. He acknowledges that the population is getting older. Around 2040 people will be getting 75 cents for every dollar they were expecting. Benefits will erode.

He mentions Clinton again and criticizes her plan to start a commission for the problem. Obama wants to manage it differently by raising the cap on the payroll tax which is currently $97,000. He says Clinton called it a trillion dollar tax increase.
