The Democratic Caucus has a website that features nothing but brilliant yellow boxes detailing how much worse off we are now as a nation than we were on January 1, 2001. For example, real GDP growth over the prior eight years was 4.09 percent. Under Bush, it’s been 2.65 percent. Bush came into office with a national debt of $5.7 trillion. In seven years, he’s almost doubled it: $9.2 trillion.
The chart is subdivided into: The Economy, Quality of Life, and United States and the World.
Go take a look, and pray we don’t get President McSame in the coming election. In fact, do more than pray: plan to work to make sure we don’t.
