2. Not me.

My family and I are not better off than we were four years ago.

And, the answer to the question "who is better off now ..." just makes me angry.

Sorry to say that lack of prosecutions of the Wall Street thieving bankers; the renewal of the Bush tax cuts; no 'public option' or single-payer health care; the JOBS Act; the Senate filibuster rule; no busting-up of the big banks; so and and so forth -- well, let's not talk about "change" like we did four years go -- that's for sure.

Rmoney and the Repuglicans have certainly not presented themselves to the American people as any kind of alternative to Pres. Obama ... but Obama has got his work cut out for him to get reelected, in my estimation.

As for Democrats running for the U.S. House and Senate this year --- time to talk about 'change' in the way we really need it: single-payer; bust-up them banks; cut the Pentagon; get us out of Afghanistan; etc.
