Election Issues
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     In November 2008 there will be an election. Voters will choose a new president. How does a voter decide whom to vote for? They listen to what each candidate has said about the issues.
 
2     One of the big issues is the war in Iraq. Many people want our troops to come home right now. They want our soldiers to be safe. They think Iraq should take care of itself. They think the war is costing the United States too much money. Other people think that Iraq needs our help. They think the United States should help weaker countries.
 
3     Another issue is health. Many people cannot afford to go to the doctor when they get sick. Many people cannot get health insurance. They think the government should help. They think every American should be able to go to a doctor when he or she is sick. But how should it be handled? Who will pay for it? These are things that must be worked out.
