Are you better off, just the same, or worse off financially after over three years of Obama?

My house was appraised ten months ago at less than half its appraisal value under Bush. All my utility type bills increased almost 50%. The price of gas and food about 30% higher.

    Our business is ow struggling to stay open.

    We do not make money, we are slowly backing up now.

    our health insurance has gone from $385 a month to $667 per month due to obama care, and we may have to cancel it completely.

    Food costs are nearly 30% higher,

    Gas prices are from $1.89 tp $4.09 in our area,.

    Home insurance just got cancelled-because of all the tornadoes and the FED telling insurers they could cancel ALL of the people they wanted to, the FED does not cover all like insurance does, but insurance is now nearly impossible to get on our home.

    The national attitude is bad, overall, and people are angry, broke, broken and depressed.

    Crimes like robbery and burglary are WAYYYYY up, due to job losses.

    Our area has lost it's last three manufacturing facilities in the last 2 years. Overseas got those jobs-China and Brazil. HMMMM.

    My wife and I are both of Anglo-Saxon heritage, so we don't qualify for any "special" Obama programs. We've never produced out-of-wedlock children nor commiited any crimes. So, we are nearly broke paying for Obama's "special" programs.

    I only know one person who qualified for any of Obama's "specials", and that person is not even an American citizen and only hires Latin Americans - some of whom might not even be legals.

    TODAY'S WSJ (owned by RIGHT-WING Newscorp/ Fox)

    quote:
    U.S. businesses added more workers in February than January, the latest sign that improvements in the economy are making it easier for Americans to find jobs.

    Private-sector employers hired 216,000 workers last month, an increase from an upwardly revised 173,000 in January, according to payroll processor Automatic Data Processing Inc. and Macroeconomic Advisers LLC, a consulting firm. The upbeat report comes ahead of Friday's jobs snapshot from the government, which will include public and private employers.

    The ADP update isn't as comprehensive as the government's monthly snapshot of the jobs market. But Wednesday's reading likely will fuel optimism ...


    fact-
    its taken time, but BUSH gave us the worst economy since Hoover, sorry if this president hasn't cleaned up his mess fast enough.
    QUICK!
    HOW MUCH OF YOUR WEALTH WENT TO PAY FOR THE BUSH WAR OF LIES?

    Fact:
    36 months of private sector job growth under President Obama.

    AND GUESS WHAT? EVERY SMART PERSON'S STOCK PORTFOLIO IS WORTH MORE NOW THAN IN 2007!

    I and my friends are definitely worth more now than in 2007.

    Worse. The properties we own are way down from where we purchased and we purchased when they were already way down. I won't complain too much because we are by comparison much better off than most Americans, but I know so many people that are going through hard times with job losses. There is no end to the help that is needed and I would say to anyone who thinks things are so great under Obama, go volunteer to help the needy and listen to some of their stories. So many people that are much worse off and to say otherwise is a boldface lie.

    Ever since the Democrats took control of Congress in Jan. 2007, things have gotten categorically worse. Personally, my family was hit hard in 2009 with the close of my 7 year old business, a business that was indirectly tied to the housing/lending market. As a result, we not only lost our only source of income, but our personal savings was wiped out as well. We've had to start over from scratch and claw our way out of the hole we were shoved into. And then having the cost of basic necessities, like food, water, transport, and energy "necessarily skyrocket" as a result of Obama's policies, just added insult to injury for me and my family. We have recovered since then and now back on our feet, despite the continued and relentless efforts of the Democrats to move my family into poverty.

    An American voting for Obama in 2012 is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders!

    Financially we're down and out. We're at risk of losing our home. My husband was laid off for about a year, then took a job where he makes less then half of what he was making. The cost of groceries is sky rocketing, and when you have a family of 6, it's pretty much hamburger meat and veggies, most of the time...no luxuries for us. The cost of gas is unbelievable, it's almost to the point where we can't afford to even make it to work or anywhere else for that matter, but then, maybe that's what "they" want. They want us confined and dependent on big brother, then they have little slaves that will jump through hoops just to feed their family.

    So no, we're not better off, we're worse.

    I'm not ignorant enough to claim it's all Obama, it's taken many administrations to get America to where we are today, but Obama sure does seem to be speeding up the process.

    I am MUCH better off and really can't understand why more people aren't.. I LISTENED to the Bush administration when they tried to warn of the impending housing collapse caused by Freddie and Fannie Mae.. Of course,, it was plain to ME even without that warning because,, living in Florida,, I was right in the middle of the so called housng boom..

    Houses that just a few years earlier were going for less then 100 grand were all of a sudden skyrocketing to 2 and even 3 hundred grand almost overnight.. Housing developements were springing up all over the place with 10 to 20% occupancy.. 500 unit apartment buildings were being built right next to half empty apartment buildings already there for years..

    And THEN came the reports that LOANS were being made to people who could NOT afford them and even Illegal Invaders..

    I said back then that THIS cannot go on for very long and I DID something about it and as it turned out,, I did what needed to be done JUST in time..

    I'm sitting pretty but it ain't got NOTHING to do with Obama.. Fact IS,, if Obama had HIS way I'd be sitting right alongside those who never had a clue.. I KNOW this and I'm,, even as we speak,, taking steps to avoid THAT too..

    First off no one person has control over gas prices and if they did it would be a lot higher.
    people on fox's news are blame the president saying that it is his fault. When Bush was in office and gas hit 4 dollars a gallon they were saying a different story. This is not the presidents fault it is the speculators buying oil futures and China and India are using more oil and that is why the price at the pump is so high. Really so what changed since Obama got in well nothing it is the same as when Bush was in the only difference is that one guy is white and the other guy is black. OH I can hear it now he is calling me a racists well it is what it is and that is a racists. Now even a Federal Judge is sending racists tweets and he said he was sorry right . The only thing he is sorry about is that he got caught and now he should be kicked off the bench.

Never in my life time as a congress said no so many times even when they did have a idea and Obama said he liked it then they changed their minds and said NO.

    Remarkable how Bush opened up exploration and development of all our national resources and the price of oil fell from $140 dollars a barrel to $33 dollars per barrel almost over night. So now you can try another defense for this occupier. You have been mislead on the changes taken place since Obama. He came in and closed down almost all of the areas Bush had opened up for exploration and development. Then there was the Gulf oil spill and that just gave him the excuse to close down the gulf. All that has it's effect on the gas prices. It is Obama's fault. Watch the video really amazing.

    During President George W. Bush's administration, we constantly heard demands to hold the President accountable for "Big Oil's price gouging." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., just two years ago, knew exactly whom to blame for "skyrocketing" oil prices: "The price of oil is at the doorstep; $4-plus per gallon for oil is attributed to two oilmen in the White House and their protectors in the United States Senate."

    In 2007, when the average national price ranged from $2.17 to $3.22, then-Sen. Barack Obama demanded that the Federal Trade Commission investigate Big Oil for "price manipulation." In 2008, presidential candidate Obama urged the Justice Department "to open an investigation into whether energy traders have been engaged in illegal activities that have helped drive up the price of oil and food."

    Obama also called for "a windfall profits penalty on oil selling at or over $80 per barrel." As of Christmas 2010, a barrel of oil sold at slightly above $90. What happened to the windfall profits tax?

    This is America after all, a free market economy. People are supposed to be profitable. Last I checked, that was not a sin. The 4$ billion dollars in sudsidies that the government gives the oil companies is peanuts. Take it away, they don't care but as they have stated, if Obama wants to do that then they should do that across the board and stop susidizing electric car companies, wind mill companies and all the other crony tax payer funded green companies which are guaranteed to go belly up with in a year of their launch as has been the case with those mentioned above. Let's see if they are as profitable as the oil companies without the government money.

    Now for the green companies you talk about going belly up and how you right wingers crying about Obama giving money to them. FACT GEORGE W BUSH
    gave money first to the company that went belly up. So again with the electric cars well as of today GM IS THE NUMBER ONE SELLING CAR.

    Uncle Sam gave GM $49.5 billion last summer in aid to finance its bankruptcy. (If it hadn't, the company, which couldn't raise this kind of money from private lenders, would have been forced into liquidation, its assets sold for scrap.) So when Whitacre publishes a column with the headline, "The GM Bailout: Paid Back in Full," most ordinary mortals unfamiliar with bailout minutia would assume that he is alluding to the entire $49.5 billion. That, however, is far from the case.

    Because a loan of such a huge amount would have been politically controversial, the Obama administration handed GM only $6.7 billion as a pure loan. (It asked for only a 7 percent interest rate—a very sweet deal considering that GM bonds at that time were trading below junk level.) The vast bulk of the bailout money was transferred to GM through the purchase of 60.8 percent equity stake in the company—arguably an even worse deal for taxpayers than the loan, given that the equity position requires them to bear the risk of the investment without any guaranteed return. (The Canadian government likewise gave GM $1.4 billion as a pure loan, and another $8.1 billion for an 11.7 percent equity stake. The U.S. and Canadian government together own 72.5 percent of the company.)

    But when Whitacre says GM has paid back the bailout money in full, he means not the entire $49.5 billion—the loan and the equity. In fact, he avoids all mention of that figure in his column. He means only the $6.7 billion loan amount.

    But wait! Even that's not the full story given that GM, which has not yet broken even, much less turned a profit, can't pay even this puny amount from its own earnings.

    So how is it paying it?

    As it turns out, the Obama administration put $13.4 billion of the aid money as "working capital" in an escrow account when the company was in bankruptcy. The company is using this escrow money—government money—to pay back the government loan.

    Saying Bush didn't throw good money around is FALSE.
    Bush loaded up a plane full of cash and sent to Iraq not keeping track of it and a lot of it ended up just like here in crooked greedy politicians.
    Now saying Chrysler did not pay it back is also false.
    You seem to forget Bush gave money to GM AND so much for
    Obama doing things wrong but Bush did it right?

    Fact people are working and paying taxes and not on unemployment but I guess you would rather have them on unemployment.
    you complain about helping out the auto but if you think this cost a lot you better check out corporate welfare. Fact Bush got us into this mess starting two wars and as we know he lied about WMDS in Iraq
    and even Dick Cheney said there were no WMDS. You compelling helping
    the working people but not one word about the money spend on Bush's two wars. The Iraq war started on a lie and cost of 4000 troops lives and for what NOTHING.Bush gave the top 1% big tax's cuts and the Republicans and then they like to say we can't raise Taxes on the job creators Really where are the jobs? I'll back Obama on helping the working people but not for starting a war on a lie and cost billions .
