    Pre-convention tussle: Are Americans better off? | General Headlines | Comcast

    In an overnight reversal of rhetoric, President Barack Obama's top allies insisted Monday that Americans are surely better off than four years ago despite a slow economic recovery and joblessness of 8.3 percent. Republicans countered that the president has failed on the fundamental question of this election.

    On Labor Day, Republican Mitt Romney said in a statement: "For far too many Americans, today is another day of worrying when their next paycheck will come."

    "We're worse off," declared Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus, speaking on CNN in the warm-up to the Democratic National Convention. "There's half a million more people unemployed today than three or four years ago, not to mention the under-employed, people who aren't making what they should make."

    Democrats are as delusional as obama himself,only ones better off are the assholes who hire illegals for pennies on the dollar,and the government leeches......

    Tell that to the 23 million that are unemployed and the poor and seniors, who can't afford the higher prices in gas, food, utilities and ins. premiums.
    No, these people are not better off at all.
