Local views mixed on Obama's second term


Lee Faulkner, 60, of West Oneonta, said he voted for Obama but he has some reservations. The division between the two parties is a big issue, but the Republicans seem more interested in stopping Obama than doing something for the people, he said. He isn't optimistic about the two parties working together in a second term.

“Politicians just want to get re-elected,” he said. However, “I’d like to see them reform the tax code and take a little of the burden off the middle class."

This would call for corporations paying more than they do now, he said.
