Are you better off now than you were four years ago? [View all]

The question isn't "Are you better off now than you were four years ago?", it's "Who is better off now than they were four years ago?". I think we know the answer to that one. The Obama administration has been living under the economic policies set in place by the Bush administration. That's where we need the "Change".

Max Martin
Democratic Candidate
U.S. Congress, Texas 36th District

Oh my! Well, at least I got response on this thread. That more than I can say for my post "President Obama's Record", at http://www.democraticunderground.com/125134963. "The idea of this comment was to draw attention to the fact that we are still operating under the economics of the Bush administration and that it's the rich who are doing better. But what I have found out is that the great majority of you are doing better. I know I am. 3 1/2 years ago my small business was loosing $60,000/year and not it's turning a small profit and paying off debt. So, when the GOP asks the question "Are you better off today, than you were 4 years ago", you need to stand up and say "Yes". We also need to work hard to rescind the Bush tax cuts, eliminate the capital gains tax scam and do away with futures trading of commodities.
