Change for what?

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

To all my friends, liberal or conservative. F.Y.I.

George Bush has been in office for 7 years. The first six the economy was fine. A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 21/2 year high

2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon,

3) The unemployment rate was 4.5 percent.

4) The Dow Jones hit a record high 14,000+

5) American’s were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large! But American’s wanted ‘Change’! So in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes we got ‘Change’ all right.

In the past year:

1) Consumer confidence has plummeted;

2) Gasoline has gone up to almost $4 a gallon;

3) Unemployment is up to 5.5 percent (a 10 percent increase),

4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 Trillion and prices are still dropping,

5) 1 percent of American homes are in foreclosure.

6) As I write, the Dow is probing another low, $2.5 Trillion dollars has evaporated from their stocks, bonds & mutual funds investment portfolios! Yes in 2006 America voted for change. And we sure got it. Remember the President has no control over any of these issues, only Congress.
