Nader: Three Questions for Barack Obama

In another clip from an email I’ve received from the Nader campaign, he asks fellow candidate Barack Obama, whose platform is heavy on “change” rhetoric, three questions.

One, why don’t you support single payer national health insurance, which is supported by a majority of doctors and the American people?

Two, why do you favor expanding the military budget which is replete with waste, fraud and abuse?

And three, why don’t you come out and support an immediate increase of the minimum wage to $10 an hour?

I, too, would like to hear the Senator’s reply to this.  I am confused as to why nobody besides Nader has come forward in favor of single-payer universal healthcare.  I am also confused as to why Mr. Obama would want to increase military funding when he says he wants to end the occupation of Iraq?  We should require less money if that were to happen, right?

The full text can be read at Mr. Nader’s campaign blog.
