Just over $1.4 trillion lost today alone. Over $2 trillion lost in the past 3 days in wealth, pensions, investment programs, college savings plans and so on.
Over 2/3 of the House republicans voted against the country, their own president and Treasury Secretary to protect the integrity of the financial system. What is pathetic is the republicans who were howling against Wall Street while crying for capital gains. So much for capital gains when the DJIA is down nearly 4,000 points over the past 12 months. Not to mention the yella belly chickenhawk repubs who could throw a punch but could not take one from the Speaker Pelosi.
How much "Change" do you want? Hey guys...facts are facts!
This has to make you think a little bit, if not then keep your blinders on!
George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago: 1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high; 2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon; 3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%. 4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 + 5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations o'seas, living large!...
But American's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress & yep--we got 'CHANGE' all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ; 2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing!; 3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase); 4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS & prices still dropping; 5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure. 6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~11,500-- $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!
YEP , IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE!...AND WE SURE GOT IT! NOW OBAMA, the DEM'S CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT--AND THE POLLS SAY HE'S GONNA BE 'THE MAN'--CLAIMS HE'S GONNA REALLY GIVE US CHANGE! JUST HOW MUCH MORE 'CHANGE' DO YA THINK YOU CAN STAND?
