Question o' the Week: What should President Obama's top priority be going forward?

Tom McWilliams: Jobs. Jobs, and more jobs. We have got to get people working again.

Jess Herrington: New jobs and freeing up energy companies during the 

MsHollypd: Debt must get better. I want to be able to get my Social Security when I get older. I want to be able to retire before 70 years old. Stop giving all this SSI away to people who don't really need it.

Jeremy Polk: Getting rid of the NDAA and indefinite detention.

Ralph Watson: 1. Fixing our voting process--this day and age we as Americans should never have to wait to vote. We all have Social Security numbers and know how to use phones or mail ballots. 2. Green energy=green jobs. Did you know Mississippi is one of three states that do not have reverse metering legislation? Yet we're in the second best zone for solar. 3. Fix the filibuster in the Senate.

Michael Kennedy: We must ALL work together going forward on a myriad of issues--the economy, women's equality, health care, securing the Medicare Trust, civil and equal rights for all citizens.

Use the rest to repair/improve the nation's creaking infrastructure. 2. Health care reform. Get what's been done carved in stone and then start work on a rational, equitable, single-payer system (can you tell I'm British?). 3. Keep hammering at equal pay and protecting reproductive rights for
