First Lady speaks at Broward College
DAVIE, Fla. (WSVN) -- First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to a crowded South Florida collage, as the President gets ready for his final debate Monday night.
First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to a crowd of 2,000 people at Broward College in Davie Monday. "So we have 15 days to go, 15 ... we got a couple of weeks," said the First Lady.
Mrs. Obama spoke about heath care, Medicare and taxes and said that firefighters and teachers should not pay more in taxes than higher income families. "We have a President who believes that teachers and firefighters should not pay a higher tax rate than millionaires and billionaires, not in America, not in America," she said.
In her speech, the first lady urged audience members to vote and help in her husband's campaign. "We only have a few more evenings left, just a couple more weekends, just a couple more hours knocking on some doors, talking to your neighbors," said the First Lady. "Look at this room. This whole room, if everyone focuses, could swing an entire precinct for Barack Obama, and if we win enough precincts we will win this state, and if we win this state, we will be well on our way on putting Barack back to the White House for four more years."
Mrs. Obama also made a reference to the first presidential debate. "And we also believe in keeping out priorities pretty straight coz we all know good and well that cutting 'Sesame Street' is now way to balance out budget," said Mrs. Obama.
"You feel like you have to go out and move," said an Obama supporter. "We gotta go out and start doing something today and not let a moment go to waste."
The first Lady will join her husband at Lynn University Monday night for the final debate.
