Are you and your family better off than you were in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected president? If so, you are in the minority. A recent Fox News poll revealed that only 24 percent of Americans believe that their personal situation is better now than it was in 2008.
Many people blame ObamaCare for the fact that they are worse off than they used to be. By a 54 to 37 percent margin, voters say they wish ObamaCare “had never passed.” That’s certainly because they’ve either lost their health insurance or their rates have gone up a lot.
Remember when Obama promised that the average American family would save $2,500 a year if the Affordable Care Act passed? Gee, what a surprise that he and many other Democrats would lie to get their legislation passed.
As bad as the situation is, one good thing that the poll showed is that the majority of those people who are dissatisfied with the current administration will vote against Democrats in the next election. A majority (53 percent) of responders to the poll say that the number of days Obama has left in office is too many.
The economy is the number one issue for voters, according to the poll. The lack of jobs and excessive government spending are the two biggest factors underneath the economy umbrella for voters, with income inequality and taxes also mentioned.
This is an issue that I would really like to hear from you about. Do you feel that you and your family are better off or worse off than you were in 2008? And regardless of your answer, please tell me why you feel the way you do.
