What´s next for Obama: Midterm Congressional Elections.Main Issues: Health Care plus Economic Signs of Recovery.


United States President Barack H. Obama

President Barack Obama needs  to maintain momentum after U.S. lawmakers passed his healthcare reform last Sunday, but politics is mobile -specially in a electoral year-  and  Obama still faces a number of  pressing domestic issues, like:  Banks and the finantial sector,  Unemployment that notched 9.7 percent last month, Growth (it´s the economy!..) ,  National Security and Terrorism, among other issues. So the question is what´s next for President Obama.  He is now in a better political position, since Sunday, but any major mistake could condemn his Democratic Party to painful losses in November mid-term congressional elections.

The main objective for  the Democratic Party for 2010 is to win the congressional mid term elections. This is also President Obama´s target for this year. There is nothing else the White House can do in terms of new bills, in the next few months (eastern and summer holidays included,then the campaign).

So, once again, what is next in the plans of President Obama?   Well, in order to perform well  in the congressional elections, the president and his Party must win now the health care public debate, and it can be an easy task because the republicans are now on the retreat.  However the polls are showing that many Americans oppose the plan or are confused about it. So, President Obama must use this moment of victory to work hard to sell the healtcare plan to the public. It does nos help that Biden and Obama´s entourage are convinced that this is a “f…deal” , but the american public must be convinced that this was a f….deal for them.  Having done that, plus some improvments in the economy, it should be enough to maintain the congressional democratic majority in november.
