    Are you better off now...

    I agree. I know the Republicans will not acknowledge the mess that Bush left. They didn't even invite him to their convention. The President has done a very good job. Is America better off now than it was when President Obama took office. Of course it is. Our debt is something that must be addressed and the President know that. He wants a balanced approach while the Republicans want to double down on trickle down. Trickle down has never worked and never will. It is counter-intuitive. Business wants their customers (middle- class, working-class) to have more money to spend. When demand goes up these businesses will hire. That's economics. As Bill Clinton would say, "That's arithmetic".

    Sentiment: Hold
