    ARE WE BETTER OFF TODAY THAN 4 YEARS AGO?
    “YOU BETCHA WE ARE.”

    When Obama took office we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. The deficit was $10.6 because of the policies he put in place. 4.4 million jobs lost during Bush’s last year in office and rising. Bush is Mostly Responsible for the Deficits Today The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (Iraq war ended but Bush’s Halliburton and Blackwater remains?)The Bush Tax Cuts.
    Medicare Advantage. “When you set fire to at house and it burns down, you are the blame.”
    “The deficit is $16 trillion and growing.” Of course it growing we are still spending money on policies Bush set in place. Unemployment at 8.3% means purchasing power and tax revenue lost. “When you are unemployed, the bills don’t stop coming in.” The Government has “obligation” to meet and when the revenue stops coming in or course the debt is going to rise. Obligation like education, unemployment insurance, Social Security, SSI, Medicare, Medicare, welfare, food stamps, WIC, public works and public services. And the Radical Right Wing Extremists want to cut more revenue other than the already tax cuts for the richest 20% which cause the debt to rise and will cause it to continue to rise. . And they want to cut spending to Government obligations that will hurt seniors, disabled, children, students, unemployed. But thanks to Obama’s stimulus that created and save 3 million jobs and the bail out of the banks and auto industry a depression was avoided and we are at 8.3% unemployment and in a recession, in recovery, instead of in a depression were we were headed when Obama took office.

    Disappointed in Obama? Not enough to vote for Romney/Ryan.

    We need to raise taxes, cut pork spending and raise spending on infrastructure that create jobs and jump start the economy. 8 years of tax cuts for the rich has been failure in job creation. Are we “better off” today then we were 4 years ago? “You Betcha” Because we are “not worse off.”

    I'm not better due to the financial collapse caused in-part by the dems, whereby they forced banks to give mortgages to the unqualified, which caused the financial mess. The recession was caused by the dems. Bush screwed-up with the deficit and fiscal policies, but not the "deep hole", that BO keeps whining about.

    Ask the 23,000,000 people out of work since the "Boob In Chief" took office if they're better off.

    Idiots.

    I'm much better off. My net wealth has increased significantly over the last 4 years. I'm sure that anyone who has a stock fat IRA or 401K will say the same. Now if we could get the obstructionist Republicans in congress to act on some job legislation, many more would be better off.

    What has congress done over the past two years to facilitate job growth in the US? Do you really think the GOP congress will take away the tax breaks from companies that outsource overseas? Idiot.
