The race for the 2016 Presidency has brought to light two polar opposite candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Though both are uniquely qualified, the candidate that has earned my support is Hillary Clinton. With over 30 years of political experience and accomplishments, her nomination as the Democratic Presidential candidate was very much self-earned. Three of Hillary’s political platform topics that help solidify my support and my vote are that she “believe(s) in science”; she has a viable plan for an affordable college education and a way to tackle the existing student debt plight, and she wants to reform and fine tune the Affordable Healthcare Act instead of repeal it.

Education is expensive and unaffordable to many Americans; and total student debt has now surpassed $1.2 trillion dollars. Being a “struggling student” myself, I empathize with the students of the US that are trying very hard to get a good education without getting into tens of thousands of dollars in debt with student loans.

With Hillary as President, I am confident she will fight for affordable health care since she has been fighting for it her whole career. If elected president, Hillary plans to protect and improve the healthcare act by bringing down out of pocket costs, lowering the costs of prescription drugs, offering health insurance to the poorest people in America by expanding Medicaid, and doubling the funding to community health centers. She plans on continuing the beginning efforts the Affordable Health Care Act has made which include but not limited to making it possible for 20 million Americans to have insurance, and making it possible for those with preexisting conditions to not be rejected or dropped by
