In Philadelphia, my hometown, 24 schools closed. In Chicago, over 50 schools were closed. Camden, New Jersey is a barren wasteland. Harrisburg, PA went bankrupt. So is Detriot. You can throw Oakland in the same category as Camden. There is over 1 trillion dollars in unpaid student debt and the president's plan will hike interest rates on federal loans when the economy and treasury markets recover. Rural poor are getting screwed in the natural gas boom around the country. People are still being illegally foreclosed on 6 years after the financial crisis began. If President Obama gave a damn about those people and fought with the same vigor he and his administration has used in defending drones, the NSA and bombing Syria, maybe our country wouldn't be in the situation we are in now.
