I think most people are glad the election is over. It’s an intense time in our country when electing our president. So many emotions run high. People become divided as certain issues come up. It’s a very personal time. Individual experiences make for some passionate feelings about who the next president should or shouldn’t be.
I am relieved to see the election come to an end. It doesn’t matter who I voted for or who my friends and family voted for. The election is over. Now is the time to focus on how this country will get back on track.
Putting the candidates aside, and just focusing on the issues our country is facing, what would you like to see change?
I am hoping the country continues to rebound. I’d like to see more jobs become available. It would be incredible if companies concentrated more on what a potential employee can bring to the table instead of focusing solely on a degree. There are many talented people out there who have so much to offer an employer if just given a chance.
I hope to see an end to the multitude of foreclosed homes and short sales. I hope the worst of the housing crisis is truly behind us.
The health care bill needs some overhauling. Companies responding to the new health care law by cutting back on full-time employees is devastating. Good intentions of securing health care coverage for full-time employees of companies definitely backfired.
How do you feel? Putting your feelings of who is or isn’t the president aside and focusing on the issues at hand, what would you like to see happen to improve our country?
Note: Please don’t mention who you did vote for or how you feel about either one of the presidential candidates. I won’t be able to approve comments that will rile people up over the outcome of the election. Thank you.
