President Barack Obama Inaugural Swearing-In

President Obama on Monday (Jan. 21, 2013) conveyed  his main agenda items during his second inaugural address. At no any time did President Obama mentioned “gun” in his well outlined plan as to what he would like to achieve over the next four years. Here are five of the points mentioned: 1) Bring down deficits and the cost of health care: “We, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. We must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.” 2) Protect federal entitlement programs: “The commitments we make to each other through Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, these things do not sap our initiative. They strengthen us.” 3) Combat climate change: “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations.” 4) Ensure equal rights for gay Americans: “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal, as well.” 5) Enact immigration reform: “Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity, until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.”
