Things have gotten much worse over the past few years. Most Americans believed that things would get better. Especially since Americans spent their future in debt to make things better. We thought the wars would have ended by now and our soldiers would have been home by now. We thought that our money would keep it's value and our debt would go down. We thought that recessions only lasted 18 months or less. The Democrats made a lot of promises. They gave us everything they wanted. They failed,lied or whatever you want to call it. If you think that things are better and nothing is "too big to fail" anymore, let me know. Is health care costs less now? What have the Democratic Party and Obama done that turned out the way they promised? When have they gotten the cause and effect right? How is that lasering on the economy working out?
