Are You Better Off Than Four Years Ago?

Home sales are up and unemployment below national average.


Just four years ago, the bottom dropped out of the U.S. economy

Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy on Sept. 15, 2008. The next day, the Federal Reserve announced a bailout of AIG. Bad news continued to pile up almost daily, with the stock market collapsing and millions of jobs vanishing.

No single factor will define such a complex process as selection of a president, but none might be greater than the simple question: Are you better off than four years ago?

“One more month of strong home sales confirm speculation that the housing market recovery is underway,” Warren Group chief executive Timothy M. Warren Jr. said in a statement.

Are you better off than you were four years ago? Or is your financial life the same or worse? Can you credit a presidential administration with business' success or failure or is the state of business left to business leaders? Let us know in the comments section.

NO! , THE COUNTRY AND THIS STATE IS IN SERIOUS FINANCIAL TROUBLE. THANKS TO A PRESIDENT WHO DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE. THE LEGISLATURE IN THIS STATE ALSO DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE, AND WE KEEP ELECTING THE SAME PEOPLE WHO KEEP MAKING THE SAME WRONG DECISIONS. I DON'T THINK WE WILL EVER GET IT RIGHT BECAUSE THE ONE PARTY IN THIS STATE IS ENTRENCHED AND HAVE ABSOLUTE POWER WHICH ABSOLUTELY CORRUPTS THE SYSTEM.
