Obama Speech, 28 August 2008.



Obama's Speech:

"John McCain has voted with George Bush 90 percent of the time...

"In Washington, they call this the 'Ownership Society,' but what it really means is that you're on your own. Out of work? Tough luck, you're on your own. No health care? The market will fix it. You're on your own. Born into poverty? Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, even if you don't have boots. You are on your own...





"We measure progress in the 23 million new jobs that were created when Bill Clinton was president...when the average American family saw its income go up $7,500 instead of go down $2,000, like it has under George Bush...

"I'll invest $150 billion over the next decade in affordable, renewable sources of energy -- wind power, and solar power (OTCBB:SOPW) , and the next generation of biofuels...

"If you have health care, my plan will lower your premiums. If you don't, you'll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves...





"I'll pay for every dime: by closing corporate loopholes and tax havens that don't help America grow...

"While Senator McCain was turning his sights to Iraq just days after 9/11, I stood up and opposed this war..."
