Today, Barack Obama was sworn into office as the 44th President of the United States of America. How exciting!

As with every new beginning there is uncertainty and fear, but also excitement. In the next four years Obama will be making big changes that will impact our economy, educational system, healthcare and much more. This is "a change we can believe in."

Here are a few plans Obama has outlined for the coming years.

Economy:

Obama administration plans to take immediate action to create good jobs in America and provide relief for families who have lost their jobs and homes. He is also planning a rapid, aggressive response to our financial crisis.

Expand and create national service programs:

Obama will call on Americans to serve their country by doing 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Here are some areas where Americans can put in some hours.

  • Health Corps to serve in the nation’s clinics and hospitals.
  • Clean Energy Corps to achieve the goal of energy independence
  • Classroom Corps to help underserved schools
  • Veterans Corps to support the Americans who serve in harm’s way

Healthcare:

Obama plans to offer affordable, accessible healthcare for all Americans. The plan will enable patients to make healthcare decisions with their doctors, instead of being blocked by insurance company authorities.
