Please do not speak for me, as a middle class citizen. I listened to you on clip that CBS THIS MORNING has on this morning, where you were giving a speech to a group of people. One person no matter for what reason they have should make a decision regarding this country should be able to ignore the congress and make decisions for the whole country. Your executive decision will be the downfall of the USA. We do not need more people depending on the government to help them through life. I feel that the future youth (18 to 23 - all ethnic groups) will now be dependent on the government the rest of their lives - there goes the middle class (no long)! You are letting our country be flooded by immigrants who will in the long run drain our country - more slums, more on federal assistance, and not enough jobs to go around. There starts the merry-go-round. More people + more government programs = no middle class. Please stop destroying our country.
