Mom, wife, CFO and military veteran Velma Hart asked President Obama a powerful question at a CNBC town hall meeting Monday.
“I’ve been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people and I’m waiting sir and I don’t feel it yet…..Is this my new reality?”
In The Daily Beast, John Cox, a longtime friend of Hart’s said: “Hart’s attitude is not new; her question fit right in line with their own conversations about the president. “I understood it completely and broke out laughing when I heard [her question] because I knew exactly what she was saying,” Cox said. The two had talked together about how “we care for [Obama], we want him to succeed, we voted for him, but we’re running out of patience.””
What do you think? Is Velma Hart right? What does President Obama need to do to help improve the lives of America’s middle class?
