17. Significantly worse. Living near the Canadian border, 30% of the items
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 07:54 PM by mtnsnake
that I purchased for my small business were bought in Canada. Under the chimp, our dollar has reached such devastating lows against the Canadian dollar that my buying days there are all but over. IE, I'm working twice as hard and making less than ever under George the Imbecile.

Under Clinton, our dollar was worth about a $1.50 Canadian at one time, and much of the time under Bill around $1.45. Under Bush it's gone down to about $1.20 and still sinking. Now I can't buy there unless I wanna break even or lose. Oh well, our sinking dollar has hurt so many people.
