    Dear Mr. Obama,

    On page 13 of your published Blueprint for Change, under Technology, Innovation and Creating Jobs you say you’ll:

    Support Job Creation: Barack Obama believes we need to double federal funding for basic research and make the research and development tax credit permanent to help create high-paying, secure jobs. Obama will also make long-term investments in education, training, and workforce development so that Americans can leverage our strengths – our ingenuity and entrepreneurialism – to create new high-wage jobs and prosper in a world economy.

    Invest in U.S. Manufacturing: The Obama comprehensive energy independence and climate change plan will invest in America’s highly-skilled manufacturing workforce and manufacturing centers to ensure that American workers have the skills and tools they need to pioneer the first wave of green technologies that will be in high demand throughout the world. Obama will also provide assistance to the domestic auto industry to ensure that new fuel-efficient vehicles are built by American workers.

    By “…funding basic research…” does that mean We, The People are going to buy stock in fledgling research companies like Adobe, Apple and Microsoft used to be? Does this mean We, The People will reap the dividends when those stocks hit?

    By “…invest in America’s highly-skilled manufacturing workforce and manufacturing centers…”, does this mean that We, The People will be buying stock in General Motors, A T & T, and other icons of American industry? Will We, The People reap the dividends when those stocks stabilize and begin to rise and pay dividends?

    This is the kind of stuff Congress aught to be working on, eh?

    Thanks in advance,

    -Joe
