Change....the Pelose Congress

**I am copying a blog I read. travismonitor.blogspot.com

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine: at the begtinning of 2007 things were looking good:

  1. Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high:
  2. Regular gasoline sold for $2.19/gallon
  3. the unemployment rate was 4.5%
  4. The DOW JONES hit a record high–14,000+

But American’s wanted “CHANGE”! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic congress & yes –we got “CHANGE” all right. They pushed for higher taxes, called CEO’s to capital hill and berated them, and pushed pork-barrel and excessive spending bills. At the same time, the economy started getting into trouble:1. Consumer confidence has plummeted;2. Gasoline is now over $4.oo a gallon & climbing. (it’s down now, for how long?)3. Unemployment is up to 6% (a 20% 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;

So a question for those who think voting for more Democrats is a good kind of “change”:…JUST HOW MUCH MORE “CHANGE” DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?????

The change we need is to change away from the Pelose Congress.

From me. How can Obama and the Democrats blame todays problems on eight years of Bush!! Ecomomics 101: Lower taxes creates more money available for us, and the lets companies of America expand and create more jobs. The problems with the banks/mortgage/wall street started when the Democrats and organizations like ACORN (“Headed and run by Obama”) forced lending companies to give sub prime loans. Now they want us to pay for it. If John McCain uses the money from the “bail out fund” to help those people with foreclosure to refinance (“as long as they have the income and ability to pay,” and NOT the ones who got the loans without down payments with 100% financing) it will help a lot of good Americans that are trying. I am just a senior who has lost $5,000 of my 401k, which was only $40,000 to start with.Lets spread the word to quit blaming Bush and show Americans we can be ok with McCain.
