Did not vote, however hopefully; it will be with or without BO in charge.
I see another year of Congress doing nothing but squabbling and casting blame on "them" - whichever party "they" happen to be - instead of accepting responsibility as a whole for their actions (or inaction). I see taxes going up and wages and benefits going down. I see the partisan divide growing further apart. I see more political agendas being shoved down the throats of an unwilling populace, from the local level up through the national. "Better?" More likely, we're heading for another Civil War.
Higher inflation, stocks dropping, unemployment rising. All in all, a terrible financial year because of poor leadership, almost no leadership actually, at the highest level of government. One side wants to tax and spend. One side wants to cut spending and not increase the tax rate. A stalemate, and a president who doesn't know how to lead or compromise. And this is just the beginning. Soon it will be his economy and he will own it and he won't know what to do to fix anything. You can blame the other side, but he is the president. He will let the economy falter because he is so obsessed with getting rich people's money. Dark days ahead.
toycannon....In the world of reality the stock market has doubled since the damage of the bush administration, thirty straight months of adding jobs and inflation has almost been flat since Obama took office.
Keep those posts coming, they help people decide how they should vote just like the last election.
Here's why you're lost as usual. It's not about what happened...It's about what's going to happen. And things are going to get bad. This country is in big trouble with a tax and spend amateur in charge, obsessed with getting rich people's money.. Now wake up and try to keep up.
Dummycrats are in charge---spend spend spend us in the hole.
And the partisan divide continues here on Vindy. Do you people not see that CONGRESS, on both sides of the aisle, is at fault for the mess we're in? The President is a figurehead - it's Congress that makes the laws. This is beyond the "Rs" versus the "Ds" - and it's that blame-casting that's causing the fiscal cliff to be unavoidable. Neither party is doing anything constructive - they're both at fault.
Save your money...
toycannon....So after the stock market recovery, adding millions of jobs and keeping inflation at bay Obama will now complete his plan for destroying America? My mistake, I didn't know you could see things so clearly and forecast the future.
cambridge, all on borrowed money. Jist kicking the can down the road. No real solutions just borrow and spend. Keep your head in the sand and you and the rest of us will be completely buried.
georgejeanie....bush borrowed money for trillions in tax breaks, the war in Iraq, a prescription drug program that benefits drug companies while crashing the worlds economy and putting millions out of work..
Obama borrowed money and created millions of jobs, saved America's auto industry, improved America's infrastructure and the value of the stock market has doubled.
You might think my head is stuck in the sand....guess where I think your head is stuck.
43% more people on food stamps, Obama phones handed out, as many as you want to make those drug deals, letting state department officials hanging out to dry and die, still have those open borders Obamacare for 30 million more people and the medical profession baling because of low return , more lawyers graduating from college than engineers, more minoirty children being born out of wedlock than ever before, Everything is just great!
Because of taxes and other government costs, our net household income will be less this year than last year or any year since 2007. Meanwhile our government continues to fund more spending plans and increase the size of government. If this keeps up, we will become part of the 47% who depend upon the government for their existence. Of course, by then it will not be 47%, it will be more like 52% and then the government has us in the bag.
