What Are YOUR Priorities for the President's First 100 Days?


I made a new website that I'd like to share with you.  White House 2 is where U.S. citizens are coming together to tell the next President what we need him to do in his first 100 days in office. Check out my video introduction.

Both candidates agree with us -- we need change, big change.  Now is the time to start getting specific.  Here are *my* top 10 priorities:
  1. Stop the Iraq war
  2. Enact universal, single-payer healthcare
  3. End cancer deaths in 10 years (2019)
  4. Make the U.S. a leader in green jobs and innovation
  5. Energy Independence in 7 years (2016)
  6. Have a press conference every week
  7. Real-time transparency
  8. Election Reform
  9. End corporate welfare
  10. Increase grants for basic scientific and tech research
What are YOUR priorities for the next President?  Go to the website and make your own list.  The homepage automatically keeps track of the most popular priorities and ranks them like the Billboard charts.  You can see priorities rise and fall in real time, based entirely on the ingenuity of the American people.
